The David Statue

The Accademia is home to the world-famous David statue by Michelangelo. Standing at fourteen feet tall, the 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. 

As an accredited tour operator, we do not have to wait in the long ticket line, but we still have to wait in a much shorter security line. 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.

Filippo Brunelleschi's Renaissance Dome - Exterior

Florence's colorful Duomo is the city's most iconic landmark. The Duomo, also known as Santa Maria Del Fiore, is a magnificent Gothic church adorned with an iconic red dome. Within Piazza del Duomo, you will also visit the Baptistry of St. John and the Florence bell tower. From outside the cathedral, learn about the amazing piece of architecture, and see the famed bronze Baptistry Doors. 

Florentine Gelato

Did you know that Florence is the birthplace of gelato? On this walking tour, we pass by our favorite gelato shop in Florence and you're welcome to stop and buy one to try. Or, 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. If you dare, buy some to sample - you might be surprised at how good it is. Now it’s time to break for lunch - we’d never let you go hungry in Italy. We suggest picking up lunch to go and sitting in a piazza.

Dante's District and Church

See the outside of the house where Dante grew up, which now operates as 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 of 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. In 1593, the Grand Duke Ferdinand I de' Medici proclaimed that only jewelers were allowed to sell their wares on the bridge. This had to do with the horrible stench from the butchers on the bridge. To this day, the bridge 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, 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 is filled with artwork from celebrated Italian Renaissance artists. This means that during the high season, wait times are long. You’re in luck though, because this Florence in a Day tour includes skip the line Uffizi tickets, which means you only have to go through a much shorter security line to enter the museum. 

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 the work people most associate with the Uffizi Gallery. 

After you visit the Uffizi, it’s time to say arrivederci to your guide and group. If you've worked up an appetite, remember to ask your guide where to eat and drink in Florence, they are experts and more than happy to advise you.

Walking combo tour in Florence

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.

Wonderful tour of Florence

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!
