A city stroll through the heart of the Italian Reinassance

Next, you'll enjoy a leisurely city stroll past the Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and the Florence Duomo and Baptistery. Your guide will pause at these sights in order to give you some of the fascinating history of Florence, which went from regional power to the world-changing center of the Renaissance in the 15th century.

Follow a special itinerary through the world's greatest collection of reinassance art

Now for more art: skipping the line at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery, you'll dive into the greatest collection of Renaissance paintings in the world. It has the tendency to overwhelm even the most seasoned museum-goers, but don't worry: Our guides have developed a very special chronological itinerary that shows you the highlights of the collection while helping you better understand how Western Art evolved from the flat, boring Medieval period, to the vibrant, emotive works of the Renaissance and beyond. You won't be an expert when you finish the tour, but you'll at least be able to impress your friends.

Your Uffizi and Accademia gallery tour ends around midday so you'll have plenty of time left to explore the city. Our guides are happy to give you recommendations, whether you want to see more museums, sit down for a long lunch, or just do some shopping, they will ensure that you have the hints, tips, and recommendations to make the most of the rest of your stay.

She did a wonderful job bringing David to life. She was energetic, humorous and provided excellent details on the art.

We loved the fantastic art history insight that we would not have picked up on our own. As we were only in Florence for three days, this tour gave us the highlights of what we needed to know with enough flavor that we wish to return! Our guide was amazing, entertaining, and engaging.

The check in process was a little confusing. But it worked out. Viola the guide was absolutely amazing. Well paced. She kept the group together, informed, had marvellous knowledge and provided an experience far beyond what I had expected. She really is great.

I liked it very much. The tour was well paced and Chiara is well qualified to guide. The Uffizi was crowded but Chiara is organized and steered our group to the best possible locations out of the way of most of the crowd. I would recommend this tour to others.

It was my first time in Italy and I chose walks of Italy because of the great reviews I read. I was not disappointed - this group is extremely professional; friendly and accommodating ...and very patient. I highly recommend walks of Italy to any visitor to Italy
