The Duomo

The Duomo is an iconic fixture of the Florentine cityscape. It is topped by the largest brick dome in the world, constructed by Filippo Brunelleschi from 1420 to 1436.  Known as a cupola in Italian, this dome is certainly worth the climb. The 463-step ascent is the first stop on your tour, but don't worry about the lines stretching out front. We have exclusive access to skip the line tickets, so you can get in and climbing as soon as possible. The Cathedral stretches 376 feet to the sky, making it one of the tallest buildings in the country. Make sure to where comfortable shoes for the climb! When you reach the top you'll be treated to the best view in the city.

Michelangelo's Masterpiece

The David is the next stop on our tour, and remains one of the most powerful works of Renaissance Art. Perhaps the world's most famous statue, this masterwork of sculpture stands at a whopping 17 feet tall. When he made this work, Michelangelo's precision and expression were unprecedented in the medium. This statue was moved to the Accademia in 1873, though it used to face out from the city hall,  the Palazzo Vecchio. While you can still see a "fake David" replica on the original spot, it's the one in the Accademia that holds the honor of being the original piece. You'll skip the line here too, so you'll have the time to see the statue with plenty of time. 

Step Through the Florentine Streets

From the Accademia you will then make your way to the incredible San Lorenzo Market. There's tons to try here from the incredible food stalls selling authentic Florentine food. This is where you'll pick up lunch, before making your way to the Piazza della Signoria at the city's center. There are tons of life-like statues here, including the "fake David" where the real statue used to stand. The Palazzo Vecchio is also featured by the Piazza, and used to serve as the center of the powerful Medici family.    

Ponte Vecchio

Proceeding down the River Arno, the Ponte Vecchio is certainly a must-see for any Florentine visitor. This bridge has been here for over a thousand years, and originally housed butcheries before they were converted to jewelry shops. It's a great place to pick up something expensive to bring home.

Great Works at the Uffizi

Widely regarded as one of the finest collections of Renaissance Art, the Uffizi Gallery is out last stop of the day. From Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphael and more, this museum truly has it all. Botticelli's Birth of Venus is certainly one of the more iconic pieces on display here, with its vibrant interpretation of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty. Caravaggio's dark and expressive paintings are also on display here, featuring the chiaroscuro technique that contrasts intense light and dark on the canvas. Here's where our tour ends, but you can feel free to explore more of the museum on your own. Ask your guide for recommendations and head out into the city for dinner. Ciao!

Great view! Great Guide!

My siblings and I only get to go to Italy once every 5 years so when we do, we want to have the best time possible. We only had 24 hours in Florence on our way to Venice for more tours with the Roman Guy so this tour was perfect for us! We loved every second of it and all 4 of us had a day together we will never forget. We couldn't find anyone else who offered a tour like this. This was one of our favorites in Italy. We want to personally thank our guide and the Roman Guy for all the great tours we had with them in Italy. We'll be using them again on our next sibling trip.
