Michelangelo's David

Michelangelo’s world-renowned statue of David resides inside Florence’s Accademia Gallery. Carved by a 26-year-old Michelangelo between 1501 and 1504, this masterpiece depicts the Biblical King David. Stand in awe at the white slab of marble carved into the exquisite work of art known worldwide.
The Accademia Gallery is Florence’s second most popular museum behind the Uffizi Gallery, resulting in long lines for visitors. Our Florence tour includes skip the line Accademia Gallery tickets, so you don’t have to wait in line. Just a quick security check and we’re in!
 
Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months, June and July. However, our team of experts works to prevent delays as much as possible.

Exterior of the Florence Duomo

A Renaissance-era dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, the Florence Duomo is one of the city’s iconic landmarks. Admire the impressive cathedral from the outside and get a glimpse of its famed bronze Baptistery Doors. Praised by generations of artists and art historians, these doors feature relief sculptures depicting Old Testament stories.

The Old Bridge - Ponte Vecchio

The Ponte Vecchio is Florence’s iconic bridge that crosses the Arno River. Since the 13th century, the Ponte Vecchio bridge has been home to many of Florence’s charming artisan shops. Used by the Medici Family for safe maneuverability, the Ponte Vecchio’s Vasari Corridor connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti. During the Vasari Corridor’s construction, gold and silversmiths replaced the butchers who sold their meats on the bridge. To this day, many jewelers and artisans still sell their goods on the Ponte Vecchio.
 
After you’ve finished your Florence in a day tour, your guide will lead the group back to the train station. Say arrivederci to your guide and new friends, then return to Rome via high-speed rail.

So easy to get to Florence!

I really did not want to have to deal with getting from Rome to Florence on my own, so this tour was great! We saw the city's main higlights and we LOVED the Uffizi.
