Discover Florence’s historic center on this 2.5-hour walking tour including the imposing Duomo, elegant Uffizi Square, the renowned leather market and the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo’s David. Stroll along the timeless streets lined with the architecture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, admire the city in its continued glory and discover its hidden gems, all in a single morning! Begin the tour with skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery where you will have the unique opportunity to see Michelangelo’s statue of the Slaves and his magnificent 17-foot marble masterpiece, the David. Then walk towards the astounding Florence Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, from where Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the skyline of Florence and never ceases to impress. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo and get an up-close view of the Duomo, where your guide will tell you interesting facts about the building. During the walking tour, learn about the fascinating history of Florence as you visit the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its ancient statues and glorious fountains. With your guide leading the way, visit all Florence's top sights, including the iconic sculptures at Piazza Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and the Uffizi Courtyard. Your expert local guide, a trained storyteller, will bring Florence to life throughout the ages — from the terrible Medieval era to the glorious Renaissance years. End the tour at Uffizi.
