Dive deep into the history of great art and architecture in Florence with this all-access tour to the city’s most jaw-dropping attractions.


  • Get rare skip the line access to climb to the top of the Florence Cathedral, potentially saving you hours of waiting in line
  • Walk the cathedral terraces (rarely visited by the public) for incredible views over the city and of the cathedral itself
  • Enter the Accademia before the crowds to see Michelangelo’s 'David' in relative peace
  • Enjoy special access to a hidden room inside the Florence Cathedral, plus the freedom to roam inside the velvet ropes of the basilica


You’ll start first thing in the morning, meeting your local expert guide and intimate group of 15 people or fewer outside the Accademia Gallery Museum. Before the daytime crowds show up, you’ll head in to marvel at Michelangelo’s David as well as his unfinished sculptures known as Slaves, which give incredible insight into the mind of the great artist. From the museum, you’ll skip lines into the cathedral, where you’ll have special access to a room filled with original statues from the cathedral’s facade. Your guide will bring the unbelievable history of the cathedral's construction to life as you explore the building. Your special access extends to the cathedral itself, where you’ll step over the velvet ropes to see details up close. The best is saved for last. After seeing all there is to see inside the cathedral, you’ll visit the cathedral terraces, where you’ll use a special entrance to skip the (always long) line and climb all the way up to the top of the cathedral for the city’s most amazing views.
