What to expect

Enjoy an intimate small-group walking tour through the historical city center of Florence. This walking tour follows a delightful route through the back streets of Florence to see and discuss all the major landmarks of the city.

During your original Renaissance walking tour of Florence, you'll see and discuss the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Davanzati, Palazzo Strozzi, the Duomo (Cathedral of Florence), Giotto's Bell Tower, Baptistery, Vasari Corridor, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and many other important sites that will assist your expert guide to narrate the history of Florence over the centuries.

Of course, this tour pays particular attention to the Renaissance period, when Florence was heralded as the "New Athens", and when the world looked here for inspiration in the fields of art, science, and philosophy. Relive those incredible years in the history of Florence, and learn about the notorious Medici Family and other famous personalities that played their role in the birth of the Renaissance as your expert guide provides a lively and entertaining lecture-style tour of Florence.

With your skip-the-line tickets, walk straight into the Accademia, where you'll enjoy an in-depth discussion on Michelangelo's David and other works by the genius of the Renaissance. You'll appreciate the art and history backgrounds of your licensed guides as they reveal the secrets behind one of Italy's most celebrated works of art. This small-group walking tour of Florence will finish inside the Accademia, allowing you to discover other precious works on display.
