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. Start with Florence's most beloved resident, Michelangelo's David at the Accademia Gallery. With pre-reserved tickets and a set entry time, breeze past lines to see the famed sculpture in the flesh. Inside, your expert art historian guide tells you what makes David so special and introduces you to other Michelangelo works that you may not have noticed otherwise. Then it's time to begin the guided walking tour. Start at Florence'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. Your walking tour is where you really feel the benefit of a small group. After a break for lunch, reconvene for a tour of the Uffizi Gallery, skip the line, and follow a specially crafted itinerary through its corridors for a true understanding of art history. As you move through the rooms, your guide will be able to demonstrate the development of artistic styles from Medieval times to the Renaissance and after. They'll show you how modern paintings bursting with colors and emotions developed from the flat, cold, compositions of the middle ages. 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.
