Description

Skip the entry lines to two of Florence's most popular attractions, the Accademia and the Uffizi, and then continue your exploration of this medieval gem with a fully guided city walking tour. Meet Florence's most beloved resident, Michelangelo's David, at the Accademia Gallery and follow a specially crafted itinerary through the corridors of the Uffizi Gallery seeing art from Medieval times to the Renaissance and after. With pre-reserved tickets and a set entry time, you'll breeze past the long lines. An expert art historian guide will help you get the most out of your visits. They'll tell you what makes David so special and introduce you to other Michelangelo works that you may not have noticed otherwise. And they'll show you how modern paintings bursting with colors and emotions developed from the flat, cold, compositions of the middle ages. Take to the streets on a guided walking tour of Florence. Start at city's crowning glory, il Duomo of Florence Cathedral, and admire the Dome from outside as you hear the story of how its architect Brunelleschi recovered lost knowledge and expanded the realm of what was deemed humanly possible all in his pursuit of building it. The walking tour continues by exploring the winding streets and art-strewn piazzas with your local guide, learning about the Ponte Vecchio bridge, Piazza Della Signoria sculptures, and more. During your full-day tour of Florence, you'll have a short lunch break. While lunch isn't included, your guide will share plenty of recommendations. By the end of the tour, you'll have visited Florence's major historical landmarks and learned about the city's rich Renaissance history—all in one day.
