EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

THE BEST OF FLORENCE IN JUST 3 HOURS

Don’t miss a single one of Florence's best sights on this Florence walking tour including the Ponte Vecchio, Duomo, and many more. With small groups of 15 people or fewer and skip the line access to Michelangelo’s David we make the most of every second we have together and immerse you in the stories and fact that bring the city to life.

SAVE TIME WAITING IN LINE TO SEE DAVID

Your Florence Walking tour starts with skip the line access to the Florence Accademia. Once inside, your expert Walks guide will reveal the fascinating history of Michelangelo’s David, whose beauty and size have to be seen to be believed. You’ll also see Michelangelo's unfinished Slaves which give unprecedented insight into the master's creative process.

VISIT THE INCREDIBLE FLORENCE DUOMO

Another highlight is Florence’s famous cathedral, the Duomo. As you admire its monumental exterior from the Piazza del Duomo, your guide will tell you the improbable story of Filippo Brunelleschi and how this Renaissance man re-discovered knowledge lost for more than a millennium to build the Cathedral’s world-famous dome - one of the largest on earth.

Before leaving the Piazza, you’ll stop at the Baptistery. During a close look at the world-renowned Baptistery doors, dubbed the 'Gates of Paradise', your guide will tell you the story of the cutthroat competition that created this glittering masterpiece. Don’t forget to ask plenty of questions—that’s the beauty of a tour with only 15 people, maximum!

ENJOY A FLORENCE WALKING TOUR OF THE BEST PIAZZAS, OUTDOOR ART & PONTE VECCHIO BRIDGE

Your Florence walking tour also includes a breezy city stroll past the highlights of the city. At the Piazza della Signoria, you’ll admire Florence’s other world-famous sight, the towering Palazzo Vecchio, visiting the original site for Michelangelo’s ‘David’, where an exact replica stands. Hear the stories behind the statues at Orsanmichele Church, rub the Porcellino pig’s nose for good luck, and feel swept up by history at the Piazza della Repubblica, the ancient Roman forum that later became the city’s Jewish ghetto. Top if all off by crossing the Ponte Vecchio, the most picturesque bridge in all of Florence – perhaps all of Italy.

By the end of your Florence walking tour, you won’t just have “seen” Florence’s most famous sights; you’ll have discovered their histories, stories, and what makes them so notable.

Eleanora was amazing. Her love of her city came through. She asked our opinion and took into consideration additional points of interest. She and the tour were fantastic.

Mozes was a pleasure to follow and learn from. He answered every question happily and knowledgeably, and we learnt more than we had expected about the city of Venice. Would recommend to anyone I know going to Venice - you see all the hotspots AND understand the history and importance around it
My guide was absolutely amazing. She had the perfect balance of information, stories, and humor. She truly kept everyone engaged. I wish I remembered her name so I can request her the next time I'm in Florence!
She was Great!
We loved this tour of Florence! Viola was incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely take this tour again.
Excellent!
We are never disappointed with our guides when booking Walks, and Jean was no exception--very excellent.
We decided as a group to skip the Duomo due to the long line. Laura did a great job exploring the area with us and giving tips for exploring, dining as and shopping.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Laura is very knowledgeable and humorous. Grazie mille!
