TOUR DESCRIPTION

You have only a few hours in Florence but you want to see a lot of the city? Then our Florence in One Day Tour is perfect for you!


Duration: about 7 hours, including a lunch break.

This tour has been created to show you as much as possible of Florence in only one day, and to help you discover the main sights in the most relaxing and entertaining way.

Your private tour guide will pick you up at your hotel* and take you through the picturesque streets, the monumental piazzas, and the gorgeous museums of this enchanting town, providing full and entertaining explanations.

You will skip the line to enter the Accademia, where you will admire the perfection of Michelangelo’s David. Your guide will tell you about the genesis of this masterpiece and the historical context that influenced Michelangelo’s art.

Why did Michelangelo represent David as muscular and proud, instead of tiny and shy as the Bible depicts him? Ask your guide to know the answer!

After the Accademia, you'll go to the Uffizi, the most important Museum in Florence. Don't worry about the lines: you'll skip them!

Once in the galleries, you will be amazed by the ageless perfection of the artworks displayed. In this unique museum, you will see many unforgettable masterpieces, such as The Spring and The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, the Annunciation and the Adoration of the Magi by Leonardo, the Madonna of the Goldfinch by Raphael, the Doni Tondo by Michelangelo, and many more.

Let your professional guide lead you in this journey through art, explain to you the secrets of the masterpieces and the life of their creators. The engaging explanations of your private guide will help you connect with the paintings and have a deeper and more intense understanding of the artworks.

At this point you’ll have worked up an appetite: no worries, we’ve included some free time for lunch! Your guide will happily recommend a traditional Italian restaurant where you can enjoy some delicious local cuisine.

Your Florence in one day tour will continue with a relaxing walk through the main piazzas. You will see Signoria square, one of the most iconic places in Florence, and the Duomo square**, which is the religious center of the city. You will learn about the history of the Duomo and its impressive dome, the Baptistery, and the bell tower designed in the early 1300s by the famous Giotto.

This Florence in one day tour wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the iconic Ponte Vecchio (the old bridge). Luckily spared by the bombs of WWII, it has impressed generations of visitors with its unmistakable shape.

Take advantage of our private and fully-customized service! Forget about big groups, busy meeting points, and no flexibility. Choose our Florence in one day tour and discover the cradle of the Italian Renaissance with us.


* The sights listed will all be included, but the order in which you will see them might change for logistic reasons.

**The Duomo doesn't offer a skip-the-line service, therefore we have decided not to include the entrance in our tour, since the lines can be very long and unpredictable. Your guide can give you information about the best ways to visit it by yourself after the tour or on another day.
