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.

Very happy with the tour and very happy about how the supervisor corrected a mistake I made when booking the tour.
Excellent guide, very good tour
Our guide was wonderful. She was easy to understand. She offered so much information. It was a pleasure to be in her group.
Giulia was a fantastic guide--how can someone know so much?! It was obvious that not only was our guide very knowledgeable but that she LOVED doing tours. I truly enjoyed being in a small group (14) and felt the value for the 3 hour tour was enormous. We definitely would take more "walks" if the opportunity arises.

The Lady who guided us was perfect. I can recommend her. Fantastic guiding! Thank you
Yes we really enjoyed the tour and the knowledge of our guide. She gave us the opportunity to shop, snack and have a bathroom break. We learned so much!
Our tour guide/leader was Angela, and I would like to commend her on her knowledge of the city and its culture, her care for our group, and for her excellent English. I spent my career as a teacher of English as a second language, and I could not help but feel pride in Angela's ability. She interacted easily with our group, and was always ready to respond to questions - and she always knew the answer!
The tour was a great introduction to Florence. It left me with the desire to see and read more.
We had a FANTASTIC time and your guides are amazing. We see a large presence of Walks of Italy and I can highly recommend your company and your tours. Your guides were fabulous and we enjoyed both the Florence tour and the Rome Tour we took with your company. THANKS so much for making this experience amazing. Regards, Robin Beede
Eleonora was one of the best guides I have ever had. Her narration was highlighted by her animation and enthusiasm, and even though I have seen the sites many times, I learned new things from her.
We really enjoyed the tour! Unfortunately the “skip the line” was not what we expected, we waited in line for 1.5 hours
Giulia was and excellent guide very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour
Great tour, even greater tour guide
An excellent tour with a very good guide. It gave a great information about David an good overview over Florence city centre. No negative comment to maki.
Thank you very much. It was a great tour. I live in Italy but this was the first tour that I have ever done with Walks of Italy. I have heard many good things about your tours/services and have recommended you (in Firenze only) to my own guests.
I thoroughly enjoyed our tour even with the rainy day. Our guide was awesome. She managed the time perfectly.
We enjoyed the tour and felt Eleanora’s passion! Would recommend this tour .
We did the tour with Chiata not David and she was outstanding in what and how you presented and the way she connected in a very likeable way to the group.

Nebojsa was a very good guide, informative and personable. Thank you.

Matthew was an excellent guide who kept us entertained during wait times and shared excellent information. Great tour! And we loved his recommendation to walk up to Piazza Michael Angelo! And his favorite gelateria!
The tour was so smooth yet it covered a lot of interesting facts about Michelangelo, Medici family, Florence history. Our guide Alessia made the tour interesting, my 10-year old son was so attentive. Highly recommended! This is our third tour with Walks of Italy, can’t go wrong with them!
