Duration: about 3 hours

Our Best of Florence tour is a lovely walk through the center of Florence, and it covers all the most important sights: Michelangelo's David, the Accademia, Signoria Square, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Duomo, and many other hidden gems.

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and it's full of masterpieces. Our professional guides will unveil for you the secrets of this magical town, talking about its history, its buildings, its unforgettable artworks. Our Best of Florence tour will be a journey through art, at the end of which you will feel deeply enriched.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the city center. She will show you Signoria Square, one of the most famous piazzas in the world, where the massive Palazzo della Signoria stands.

This was the political heart of Florence, and it's also a true open-air museum, surrounded by unforgettable buildings and statues. It's the perfect place to talk about the intriguing lives of the most important men and women in the history of Florence, learn about the Renaissance and its main characters: Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello.

Then, you'll cross the most famous and beautiful bridge in Florence: Ponte Vecchio, which offers a romantic view of the Arno river

Your tour will continue toward the most important church in the city: the Duomo (that you will see from outside**). Its massive cupola (dome) built by Brunelleschi is the biggest in Italy and it's one of the symbols of Florence, just like Giotto's bell Tower that stands right next to it. What are the architectural secrets of the dome? Why is it one of the most important structures ever built? Ask your guide! She'll have all the answers! Also, she will tell you about the other masterpieces in the square: the baptistery and its amazing doors, the bell-tower, and the Duomo's facade.

We have saved the best for last: after walking through some picturesque small streets, you will reach the Accademia and see Michelangelo's David. It's one of the most remarkable statues in the world, and it's one of Michelangelo's masterpieces. David will certainly leave you breathless. Don't worry about the lines: we'll have skip-the-line tickets!

Who was Michelangelo, and why was he such an important artist? Why did he represent David in this position, and so muscular? Who commissioned the statue, and what's the history behind it? Your guides will answer all your questions, and make sure you're having a great time during the tour.
