What to expect

Visit the wonderful historic center of Florence with a professional tour guide and discover its unique secular heritage and breathtaking beauty. Don't miss the opportunity to explore the Accademia and the Uffizi Galleries, two of Italy's most important museums, and to see the Vasari Corridor, the Medici family's secret passageway.

Your guide will take you to some of the most important spots where the greatest minds and artists have been inspired. During the walk, you will see Piazza della Signoria with the Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo, the Baptistery with its 'Gates of Paradise', Giotto's bell tower, Brunelleschi's Dome, Santa Trinità and Orsanmichele Church, the Ponte Vecchio, as well as famous shopping streets and the Oltrarno, the handicraft neighborhood.

Take advantage of the skip-the-line entrance to the Accademia Gallery and discover the original masterpiece that has become the symbol of the Renaissance: Michelangelo's David. Admire it from every perspective, gaze in awe at David, which dominates the central gallery of the museum. The Accademia Gallery houses also many other masterpieces, both paintings and sculptures, by great artists such as Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, Andrea del Sarto and many more, which you will discover with your knowledgeable guide.

In the Uffizi Gallery, you'll see the most incredible artworks from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and beyond. A collection of masterpieces unparalleled in the world by artists such as Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Botticelli, and many others. With this tour, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the long lines at the entrance.

After the visit to the Uffizi, reach the Ponte Vecchio, which houses the best-kept secret of Florence: a passageway that allowed the royal family to move freely from their residence (Palazzo Pitti) to the government palace (Palazzo Vecchio) on the other side of the river Arno. Uncover the history and secrets of the Vasari Corridor with your guide as you walk along its path from the outside, like the enemies of the Grand Duke trying to track his movements inside the passageway.
