Tour Description

The Heart of The City

Discover the historic center of Florence on this 3 hour Florence walking tour including the imposing Duomo, elegant Piazza della Signoria, the renowned leather market, and the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo’s David. Stroll along the timeless streets lined with superb examples of architecture from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, admire Florence in its continued glory and discover its hidden gems, all in a single morning!*

Our Florence tour begins with Skip the Line entrance to the Accademia Gallery (your ticket is included!) where you will marvel at Michelangelo’s statues of the Slaves and his magnificent 17 foot marble masterpiece, David.

Our Florence tours visit the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its immense statues, glorious fountains, the famed Uffizi Gallery and the Medieval Palazzo Vecchio. Our path continues as we head toward the Religious Center, stopping at the Church of Orsanmichele, where you will admire ingenious statues by famed artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti and Verrocchio.

Come Nose to Nose with il Porcellino

Rub the nose of the legendary boar, “il Porcellino” to ensure a return to Florence and visit Piazza della Repubblica, once the Ancient Forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists and locals. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo. Entry to the Duomo is free, and you can visit independently during your free time if you wish. Your guide will also have provided a full explanation on the interior and exterior features from outside.
