What to expect

Florence is packed full of world-famous sites and this best of Florence tour for small groups is designed to let you see them all in a single morning.

You'll start by skipping the lines to visit the Accademia Gallery. Admire Michelangelo’s David, as well as his partially-finished Slaves and be amazed at how he managed to transform the jagged rock into the beautiful, lifelike figures of his sculptures. Your expert art historian guide is the perfect person to teach you all about Michelangelo's sculpting methods.

Continue towards the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. This incredible church was built in 1436 and still boasts one of the largest domes in the entire world. You'll also stop off at the Baptistery to see a set of bronze doors cast by Lorenzo Ghiberti that Michelangelo dubbed the Gates of Paradise. Last - but certainly not least - on the itinerary, you'll explore the third great wonder of Florence: its streets. Admire Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, the statues of the Church of Orsanmichele, Piazza della Repubblica, and of course Ponte Vecchio, the most picturesque bridge in Italy.

Sites included:

  • Michelangelo’s 'David' and 'Slaves' in the Accademia
  • Florence Duomo (outside only) and Baptistery Doors
  • Ponte Vecchio
  • Piazza della Signoria
  • Palazzo Vecchio (from outside)
  • Orsanmichele Church (from outside)
