Tour description

A tour for those who want to visit the most famous sights of Florence in one day with admission to the Accademia and the Uffizi galleries.

Our tour starts from Piazza Santa Croce with a guided walk to Piazza Signoria where stands the Palazzo Vecchio, the Town Hall and heart of local government of the city and from where we will continue towards the medieval district of Dante Alighieri. On arriving in Piazza Duomo we will narrate the mysteries about the construction of the dome of Brunelleschi and admire the Baptistery and Giotto's bell tower; then we will enter the Cathedral. From there it will only take ten minutes’ walk to reach the Accademia Gallery where you will be welcomed by Michelangelo's David. We will have lunch* at the Central Market where you can choose from an endless variety of culinary delights of Tuscany[*lunch not included in the tour]. After the break our tour continues via the Medicean district up to Santa Maria Novella, then we will reach the Palazzo Strozzi and then proceeding along Via Tornabuoni (the street of fashion brands) we will arrive at the Ponte Vecchio and end up in the Uffizi courtyard. With our local guide you will enter the Uffizi Gallery, a treasure chest which houses the biggest collection of Renaissance masterpieces in the world: you will admire Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio and many other artists...
