What To Expect

Cover all the highlights of Florence in just two and a half hours on this walking tour of the city. 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. You'll visit all of the most important and iconic sights, starting off from the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge, the Uffizi Courtyard, the sculptures at Piazza Signoria and the gold doors of the Baptistery. Then, you'll continue on to the Duomo Square, where the magnificent cathedral of Florence stands. As you stand outside and admire its architecture, your guide will tell you all about its construction and history before whisking you off to explore the hidden gems of the city. As you explore the lesser known sights including the leather market, you'll hear all about their history from your expert local guide, who will take you back in time to see Florence through the ages from the terrible Medieval era to the glorious Renaissance years. For most visitors to Florence, visiting Michelangelo's David is top of the to-do list which means that there are usually huge queues during busy periods. With this tour, you'll get skip the line access and a pre-reserved entry time at the Galleria dell'Accademia so you won't waste precious time waiting in line and can get inside to explore at your own pace. Of course, there's more to Florence than David and this walking tour promises to show you the best of the city and its history on foot!
