What to expect

Make the most of your time in Florence with a 3-hour tour of its most important attractions! Florence isn't a big city but the concentration of monuments and museums is truly amazing. It is hard to define the best itinerary to see everything in one day, so the best solution is joining this half-day tour which will give you an overview of the historic center and its highlights.

Meet your guide in central Florence and explore Piazza della Republica, where the ancient Roman Forum originally was. Walk to Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city, and listen to the history of the Florentine Republic, the Medici family and the Palazzo Vecchio. Admire the sculptures which make this piazza one of the most famous in the world.

Proceed to the Ponte Vecchio, admire its jewelry shops and hear the unique history of the Vasari Corridor, passing above it. Arrive at the Pitti Palace, once the private residence of the Grand Dukes and admire its splendor. Continue your walk through the Oltrarno, the bohemian area of Florence full of artists, workshops and lovely cafes. Cross the Ponte Santa Trinita and stop for a stunning picture of the Ponte Vecchio from this side.

The tour continues along Via Tornabuoni, the fashion designer street where you will be amazed by the beautiful shop windows. Pass through Palazzo Strozzi's courtyard and admire the essence of the Renaissance architecture. Continue your walk to the Duomo, and marvel at the Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome and the Baptistery. If the line is not too long, you'll also be able to see the inside.

Finally, don't miss the Accademia Gallery: admire the famous David by Michelangelo. You will have priority entrance to the museum, we will take care of the ticket reservation to let you skip the long lines and make the tour even smoother!
