Few cities in the world contain so many stunning works of art in such a small space as Florence. Cover all the highlights of this incredible city in just two hours on our Florence walking tours. We’ll admire the iconic Ponte Vecchio bridge where colorful jewelry stores line the cobbled street. We’ll visit the leather market and rub the nose of Il Porcellino for good luck. With an expert, English-speaking guide to tell you the stories behind the sights, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the history and culture of Florence, bringing the city to life right in front of your eyes.

Visit the stunning Il Duomo

We’ll visit the Duomo Square, where the magnificent Florence Cathedral is, known locally as Il Duomo, for the stunning dome that crowns it. This incredible feat of engineering required a whole new process for its construction, which your guide will describe as you view it from the outside. The entrance to the Duomo is free and you can visit independently if you wish, as the guide provided you with a full explanation of it's inside and outside features.

We’ll see the gold doors of the Baptistery here before setting off on our tour around the city. With your guide leading the way you’ll visit all the most important sights, including the iconic Uffizi Courtyard and the sculptures at Piazza Signoria.

You’ll also see some less-visited gems of the city and hear some incredible stories from your expert local guide, a trained storyteller who will bring Florence to life for you throughout the ages – from the terrible Medieval era to the glorious Renaissance years.

Gaze at Michelangelo's David

For most visitors to Florence, visiting Michelangelo’s ‘David’ is top of the to-do list, a fact that leaves queues for this masterpiece hours long during busy periods. We have Skip the Line Access and a pre-reserved entry time at the Accademia Gallery for you so you won’t waste precious time better spent inside. With the help of an expert, English-speaking guide on hand during your tour and his full explanations, you’ll be able to spot the sculptures emerging from the rock and learn about Michelangelo’s technique in sculpting – an art form he considered far above painting.

Viewing ‘David’ for the first time is a memorable experience, you’ll visit not just ‘David’ but Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Slaves’ too. Your guide will suggest you the best angles from which to view him and explain why this statue of the youth who slew Goliath is so different from thousands of others.

Of course, there’s more to Florence than ‘David’. Our Florence walking tours cover the best of the rest by foot with audio headsets so you can always hear your guide.
