Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Galleria dell'Accademia, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50122, Florence Italy

Start the day with skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s David. Nothing prepares you for the scale of this sculptural masterpiece. Your guide will help you appreciate the artistry from every angle, including the techniques Michelangelo used to make marble look smooth as butter.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Duomo - Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, Via della Canonica, 1 Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy

The highlight of the city walking tour is the Florence Cathedral, whose incredible red dome is the city’s crown jewel. The dome was not without challenges for architect Filippo Brunelleschi, as your guide will explain as you view the masterpiece from outside. Entrance to the Duomo is always free, so you can come back at any time to explore the cathedral in more depth, equipped with an abundance of knowledge shared by your expert, local guide.

Pass By: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

Your tour continues through the historic center of Florence, taking in the Ponte Vecchio bridge and the Piazza Signoria, where David once stood.

Pass By: Ponte Vecchio, 50125, Florence Italy

Your tour continues through the historic center of Florence, taking in the Ponte Vecchio bridge and the Piazza Signoria, where David once stood.

Stop At: Gallerie Degli Uffizi, Piazzale Degli Uffizi 6, 50122, Florence Italy

After a break for lunch (be sure to ask your guide for recommendations), you’ll skip the line once more at the Uffizi Gallery. Your guide will lead you on a carefully planned route through this immense gallery, wasting no time in showcasing works by Da Vinci, Botticelli, and Titian. Don’t forget to rub the nose of Il Porcellino, Pietro Tacca’s Baroque bronze boar sculpture, to bring the rest of your vacation good luck.

Whether you’re only in Florence for a day or settling in for a longer stay, this is the perfect introduction to a city where beauty awaits around every corner.

We really enjoyed this excellent tour that has part 1 in the Galleria dell’Academia to see the breathtaking David by Michaelangelo followed by a wonderful tour of the city center. Christiano was our guide and he was excellent! He was so passionate and dedicated, we couldn’t believe our luck. The second portion was skip the line entrance to the Uffizi Museum. We got to see the most important highlights and our tour guide Sarah was informative and helpful linking the artists and explaining the evolution of the art style. We had a little over an hour to grab lunch at a place of our choosing. I highly recommend this tour. It’s starts at 9:00AM and ends around 3:30 PM.

Both of the tour guides were super informative and very enjoyable to listen to. Definitely pay to skip the line or it would take FORVEVE to get in!

This two part tour was great. Both guides were interesting to listen to. Mics and headphones were a great way to stay engaged without having to stand on top of each other. Both guides were very knowledgeable. We had maybe an hour break between the tours to allow us time to get a bite to eat. The skip the line passes were great. We still had to wait in line for security, but the lines were definitely shorter than if we didn't have these tickets. So worth the extra price. .

Highly impressed with the caliber of Annette and Kiria our tour guides. While the day was a long one, the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of both guides made you want to stay forever! We learned so much, saw amazing art and loved the ramble through Florence and seeing things we didn’t know were even there. Highly recommend! Thank you Annette and Kiria!

Marilena is passionate and in love with her city, it's history art and conveys that in her tours. She's very knowledgeable, friendly and a great story teller!! We were lucky enough to get her for both the Accademia and the Uffizi. Wish she could have been our guide the entire trip

This is a must do in Florence! There are two parts, morning and afternoon. The morning tour is David and walking tour of Florence. The afternoon is the Uffizi tour. I had two different tour guides, Milina in the morning and Annette in the afternoon. Both were wonderful, very knowledgeable. Explained everything clearly!

My husband and I spent 3 full days in Florence and booked this tour as the main event on one day. The tour started out with seeing the Accademia, where the Statue of David was the highlight. Seeing the statue in real life was so surreal and amazing! When we left the museum, we continued on a walking tour seeing the Duomo, Bell Tower, Ponte Vecchio, etc. Annette was our guide for the first half and she was so great! We had an hour- hour and a half break for lunch on your own, and then met back at the Uffizi Gallery for the second part of the tour. The second half of the Tour we had Federica G. and she was a great guide as well! She was very knowledgable about all of the art, and it was plain to see that she admired it! To be 100% honest, we were glad the tour of the Uffizi was a bit shorter, because as we are not huge art people, and this tour really had not many famous masterpieces we wanted to be able to say we had seen, by the end of it we were ready to go. If you’re an art lover or have abundant time to spend, it is definitely a must, but for the layperson, you don’t have to feel like you’re missing a ton if you skip the Uffizi.

Great tour of the galleries and a walking tour. Stefano was absolutely the best! Not only knowledgeable about Michelangelo, but all sights along the walk. I particularly enjoyed his intelligence and wit. Not sure if you can request a guide, but hecwas ours for Sat am at Accademia.

Well organised and guide was excellent. Only problem was we had an old couple that did not come out of the gallery at the agreed time and we all stood around for 20 min outside waiting. Not the tour leaders fault but put us behind for the rest of the day. Tour leader was good and considerate to them by trying to find them. Her information and knowledge great.

Both Marilyn and Irene were enthusiastic, as well as informative during our experience. Wonderful way to learn more about Florence.

It was a wonderful feeling to see the long lines of people wanting to get into these two attractions while we entered easily. We did not need to rent the audio program because we had knowledgeable guides to show us the main attractions of each museum. The city walking tour was not something we were expecting but it was a welcome and informative addition to our day.

We are really glad we booked this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable. Although we are not big art affectionados, you cannot go to Florence and not see David and the artwork in Uffizzi. Even though we went to Florence in September, all tourist attractions were super packed and it turned out to be

Our two tour guides, Paulina and Melanie, were excellent. We were glad the walking part of the tour took us from the Accademia to the Uffizi. I wish we had done this on day one as it gave a great overview of the city.

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and provided a wonderful tour of the Uffizi, the Academia and an overview of the highlights of Florence on the walking tour

We had such a wonderful tour with Costanza? In the morning and Pata in the afternoon at the Uffizi. We were disappointed at first the we weren't going going to have our morning guide for the afternoon because she was so knowledgeable and had such a great personality. But Pata was a good guide as well. The tour of Florence was so informative and hit the main places as well as some we weren't aware of. I highly recommend this tour. We are also happy that we did the Galleria and tour part in the morning as that was the part we enjoyed and held our attention the most.

Mel was our tour guide and did a wonderful job of explaining the pieces we saw and the significance of each piece for the artist, the people, and in history. She did great job of intermixing the politics and religion into her narrative as well,

We are so glad to have booked these tours because this is the best way to be able to see all these masterpieces at these 2 sites within 1 day! To be able to skip the regular ticket/entrance line is wonderful but the added support and information provided by our 2 different guides was invaluable! We had Angela A. to see the statue David and she was great! Our second guide was also excellent and she knew the art works in the Uffizi like they were family members! Great tour and we highly recommend!!
