The David Statue

The Accademia Gallery is home to the world-famous David statue by Michelangelo. Standing 14 feet tall, the iconic marble statue depicts the biblical hero David before his battle with Goliath. The Accademia Gallery is the second-most popular museum in the city (behind the Uffizi), which sometimes means long lines for most visitors.

Fortunately, you'll be able to bypass the crowds with your guide and only enter a shorter security line. Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months of June and July.

Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore (Florence Duomo)

Florence's colorful Duomo is the city's most iconic landmark. The Duomo, also known as Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore, is a magnificent Gothic church adorned with an iconic red dome. You will visit the Baptistry of St. John and the Florence bell tower, then see the famed bronze Baptistry Doors and learn about the amazing architecture as you gaze upon it from the piazza.

Florentine Gelato

Did you know that Florence is the birthplace of gelato? On this walking tour, you'll pass by our favorite gelato shop in Florence where you're welcome to stop and buy a flavor (or two!). Otherwise, you can take note of where the shop is and come back later after dinner for a sweet treat. 

Taste Florentine Cuisine

Florence is also home to some of the best food in Italy. Learn about the history of trippa, a popular Florentine street food. Don't hesitate to buy some—you might be surprised at how good it is. This is also the perfect time to buy lunch at any one of the recommendations your guide has for you.

Dante's District and Church

See where Dante grew up: his original house that's now a museum. Plus, see the little church of Santa Margherita. It's said that this is where Dante and Beatrice fell in love. Dante writes about Beatrice in his most famous work, The Divine Comedy.

The Jewelers on Ponte Vecchio Bridge

Shops have lined the famed Ponte Vecchio bridge since the 13th century. Originally, they included butchers, fishmongers, and tanners. Then in 1593, the Grand Duke Ferdinand I de' Medici proclaimed that only jewelers were allowed to sell their wares on the bridge. Follow your guide to this bridge that still glitters with silver and gold jewelry crafted by local Italian artisans.

Palazzo Vecchio and the Medici Family

Piazza della Signoria is the historical and emotional heart of Florence. The most prominent feature of the square is the Palazzo Vecchio, which is the former home of the Medici family and also the Florentine Republic’s administrative center. Learn about the incredible influence the Medici family wielded and their impact on the city.

The Uffizi Gallery

As the most popular museum in Florence, the Uffizi Gallery is filled with artwork from celebrated Italian Renaissance artists. You'll also enjoy skip-the-line access here and bypass the longer lines that often happen during the summer.

Once inside, visit some of the most celebrated works of art in existence, including Botticelli's Birth of Venus, which depicts the goddess Venus being carried ashore in a giant seashell. Along with the Birth of Venus, Caravaggio’s Medusa is probably the most popular sculpture people come to see at the Uffizi.

My wife and I have been to Florence for many years and this last October was perhaps the tour that we ever had. Our guide was very fluent in English and was very patient answering our detailed questions. We were also able to skip the lines to make our visit that much more enjoyable. We highly recommend The Roman Guy Tour Company.

The Tour Guy has some wonderful tour people leading tours. Francesca was just terrific and gave us a wonderful tour of her beautiful city. She answered many questions from the group about little quirky things and was extremely pleasant. I highly recommend the full day tour in order to skip the long lines at the museums. Thank you again!
