The David Statue

Skip the line at the Accademia Gallery to see the wonder Michelangelo carved out of a block of Carrara marble. Standing at 17 feet tall, the Statue of David portrays the biblical hero David just before he slays the beast Goliath. As the tale goes, David was definitely the underdog in the battle, but with wit and finesse, he was able to defeat his opponent. See the incredible details of Michelangelo’s David up close. And, even catch David’s incredibly large hands and sculpting imperfections on his legs.

Filippo Brunelleschi's Renaissance Dome - Exterior

Walk past the structure that defines the Florence skyline, the Duomo. Constructed primarily by Arnolfo di Cambio, the Florence Duomo took nearly 150 years to build. Filippo Brunelleschi finished the job and is credited with designing the Duomo’s gorgeous red dome. Explore the gothic architecture of the church and marvel at the baptistry’s bronze doors. Your guide will explain the history behind the Duomo and baptistry artwork.

Florentine Gelato

Time to stop for a sweet treat. Head over to one of Florence’s best gelato shops and learn the rich history of gelato in Italy. Understand how to spot authentic gelato in Florence and taste just how delicious it is.

Taste Florentine Cuisine

Who says you can’t have gelato before lunch? After visiting some of Florence’s finest landmarks, it’s time for a quick bite. Learn about one of Florence’s most popular street foods, trippaYou may be surprised by just how tasty it is.

Dante's District and Church

Wander around the local neighborhood of central Florence and step into a charming alleyway. You’ll notice a brown brick house with a sign that says “Casa di Dante.” Here, you will learn about the life and works of Dante Alighieri, famous for the “Divine Comedy” And “Dante’s Inferno.” And, explore the local street art outside of the museum, as the Florentine street art is quite amusing.

The Jewelers on Ponte Vecchio Bridge

Now lined with jewelry shops, the Ponte Vecchio used to serve as a main marketplace of Florence. This beautiful bridge is by far the most famous out of the many bridges in Florence. During the age of the Renaissance, the Ponte Vecchio used to serve as an instrumental transportation method. Atop the Ponte Vecchio, you can spot the windows of the Vasari Corridor, the exclusive pathway the Medici family used to use to get from Palazzo Pitti, where the family lived, to Palazzo Vecchio, where they worked.

Palazzo Vecchio and the Medici Family

Explore Florence’s outdoor art gallery, including dozens of statues and beautiful architecture. If you’re interested in fashion, check out the Gucci Museo in this piazza. You’ll also see the exterior of Palazzo Vecchio, a beautiful building with a large tower that dates back to the time of the Medici family. Out front, you will see one of the two copies of Michelangelo’s David in Florence. You can find the other copy atop Piazzale Michelangelo.

The Awe-Inspiring Uffizi Galleries

Just a minute away from the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery is home to countless iconic works of Renaissance art. Without a doubt, the Uffizi Gallery is the most popular museum in Florence. Because the lines can get super long, you’re in luck, as this tour offers skip the line tickets.

 

Once inside, experience the magic of works from several celebrated Renaissance artists. One of the most famous paintings in the Uffizi is The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli, depicting goddess Venus emerging from a clam shell. Among others, you can expect to see and learn all about Caravaggio’s Medusa, Leonardo’s Adoration of the Magi and Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo.

Best tour!!

I loved seeing Florence with the Tour Guy! We saw so many fantastic landmarks in one day. I will definitely be back to explore more but this was the best way to see so much in a day.

Full day Florence with Uffizi

Morning part of tour was with Chiara and she was excellent. Good overview of the city for our newly graduated granddaughters who have never been to Florence. Super historic personal side of Michelangelo while viewing the David and fun facts thru the entire walk. Only disappointment was not going into the Dumo. Afternoon was in the Uffizi with Valentino and she was equally good. Looking forward to our next tours in Rome a few days from now- Roman Guy is the best and their customer service is fantastic should you have problems.

A wonderful introduction to Florence

We joined a party of 12 for this tour, our guide, Francesca was very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun! She showed us aspects of Florence that we wouldn't have seen for ourselves. price was quite high but as it included a skip the line admission to see Michelangelo's David it was worth the money. We would use Roman Guide tours again.
