Tour Description

The best of Florence

Don’t miss a single one of Florence's best sights on this Florence walking tour, including the Ponte Vecchio, skip-the-line access to the Duomo, and many more. With skip-the-line access to Michelangelo’s David, we make the most of every second we have together and your expert local guide will immerse you in the stories and facts 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 gives unprecedented insight into the master's creative process.

Visit the incredible Florence Duomo

Another highlight is Florence’s famous cathedral, the Duomo. You get to skip the line into the historic building, while 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 cut-throat competition that created this glittering masterpiece.

Enjoy a Florence Walking Tour of the best piazzas, outdoor art and 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. Visit the original site for Michelangelo’s David, where an exact replica stands. Hear the stories behind the Leather Market, 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 it 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.
