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. 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 cut-throat 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!

*NOTE: For those that really want to visit the interior of the Florence Duomo with a guide, we recommend our Best of Florence with Special-Access Florence Duomo Tour. It offers you the same itinerary as this tour plus a rare skip the line tour inside Florence Duomo. View Here*

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 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 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.

We had a most enjoyable 3 hr tour with Angelo as our guide. Angelo was very passionate, and he made history come alive with fascinating and engaging stories. Indeed, this tour was one of the most fascinating I have taken.
