Full description
Make the most of your time in Florence with a 3-hour tour of the most important sites and monuments. Meet your guide at your hotel in Florence and explore the Piazza della Republica, where the ancient Roman Forum originally was. Walk to Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city and listen to the history of the Florentine Republic, the Medici family and the Palazzo Vecchio. Admire the sculptures that make this piazza one of the most famous in the world.

Proceed to the Ponte Vecchio and admire its jewellery, and hear the unique history of the Vasari Corridor, passing above it. Arrive at the Pitti Palace which was once the private residence of the grand dukes and admire its splendour. Continue your walk though the Oltrarno, the bohemian area of Florence full of artists, workshops and lovely cafes. Cross the Ponte Santa Trinita and stop for a stunning picture to the Ponte Vecchio from this side.

Continue along Via Tornabuoni, the fashion designer street where you will be amazed by the beautiful windows. Pass through Palazzo Strozzi's courtyard and admire the essence of the Renaissance architecture. Continue your walk to the Duomo, and admire the Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome and the Baptistery. Lines at the entrance of the Cathedral can be very long, and there is no possible way to skip them, so the guide will decide with you at the moment what you want to do according to the time you have at your disposal.

Walk to the Accademia, and enjoy skip-the-line entrance to see the original Michelangelo's David and the Prisoners. Your guide will tell you of the secrets of the statues and Michelangelo's life. The tour ends outside of the Accademia Museum.
