Enjoy skip-the-line entry to the Accademia and Uffizi galleries to see incredible works by Michelangelo, Botticelli, and Caravaggio.

Florence in a Day Combo Tour Description

Your 6.5-hour city tour includes:

  • Expertly-guided walking tour of Florence

  • Skip-the-line entry and tour of Accademia Gallery

  • Skip-the-line entry and tour of Uffizi Gallery

  • See the Florence Duomo and Ponte Vecchio up close

  • Free time to enjoy a Florentine lunch (not included)

  • A fun, English-speaking local guide

  • Maximum group size of 16

This Florence in a day tour is a combination of two popular tours. After enjoying lunch on your own, meet up with your group again to keep exploring the city with the same (or a new) guide. Booking a combo tour saves you money since you see more attractions at a lower price!

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, that won't be a problem for you! 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'll 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.

This tour gives you a comprehensive insight into the Florence Duomo from the outside. If you'd like a more in-depth Duomo experience, check out our Florence Duomo Tour and Dome Climb!

Stop for 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. 

Your Florentine Lunch Break

Before setting off on the second part of your Florence in a Day tour, you'll have time to buy lunch at one of the city's many restaurants and food stalls. Your guide will have plenty of recommendations to share, with Florentine cuisine widely regarded as some of the best 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.

Dante's District and Church

Your tour continues past the original house where Dante grew up, now converted into 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

Ponte Vecchio means “old bridge” in Italian, and it's appropriately named. Merchant shops have lined this famed bridge since the 13th century. Originally, the shops included fishmongers, butchers, and tanners, however these particular goods caused such a stench in the area that Ferdinand I proclaimed in 1593 that only jewelers were allowed to sell on the bridge. You'll feel as if you've stepped back in time as you stroll around this historic part of Florence.

Palazzo Vecchio and the Medici Family

Piazza della Signoria is the historical and cultural 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's history and art.

The Uffizi Gallery

As the most popular museum in Florence, the line to get inside the Uffizi Gallery can be painfully long at times. Not to worry though, you'll also enjoy skip-the-line access here so you guide can show you the iconic Renaissance artwork inside without the long wait. Your guide has a true expertise on the Uffizi's artwork and the stories behind it, so you'll also get a more informed and entertaining experience in this famous museum.

Once inside, visit some of the most celebrated works of art in the world, including Botticelli's Birth of Venus, which depicts the goddess Venus being carried ashore in a giant seashell. Caravaggio’s Medusa and Michelangelo’s Holy Family (or Doni Tondo) are two of the other standout pieces on display here, but your guide will help you discover plenty of lesser-known gems too.

Our morning guide was pretty good. Our afternoon guide was very good. The tour was advertised. Too bad the morning section did not include an inside/skip the line tour of the Firenze Duomo. The afternoon tour of the Uffizi was very helpful, as there is so much to see that having a knowledgeable guide made all the difference. We would do these two tours again.

Great tour

Our time was limited in Florence so we opted for this tour. The tour covered all of the highlights of Florence. Our tour guide was Ciara in the morning and Francesca in the afternoon. Both were really good. They shared interesting history about the sights and made it very enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour and Ciara and Francesca.

Great Tour again but didn't meet the Tour Guy from Youtube!

Awesome tours (I did one in the morning and one in the afternoon). Both of the Tour Guys were very knowledgeable and knew how to communicate and dedicate time to everyone in the group, with always an interesting insight every step of the way. The Tour Guy from the Youtube video didn't show up again!
