Full description
Start your day by meeting your knowledgeable and friendly guide at the designated meeting point. Briefly get to know one another before heading off through the magical city of Florence in the safe hands of your guide. Your day commences with hassle-free with skip-the-line tickets to the Museum, gaining priority entrance and avoiding the long queues. Inside you can see a number of world-famous works of art, including Michelangelo's David. Take a trip to the Duomo, also known as Santa Maria Del Fiore, Florence's most iconic landmark, with its epic Gothic architecture, and iconic red dome. You will also visit the Baptistry of St. John and the Florence bell tower, where you will learn about the incredible architecture, and see the famous bronze Baptistry Doors. Florence is the birthplace of Gelato. On this tour, you will be taken to some of the best Gelato in the city. And if you're not in the mood, you can always come back later for a late-night bite. Through local cuisine, learn about the deep history of Florentine culture. Sample trippa, the popular Florentine street food. And that's just for starters. At lunch time, pick up some lunch to go and take a seat in the beautiful piazza. Discover where Italy's great poet Dante grew up, a childhood home turned into a museum. You'll also see the little church of Santa Margherita. It's said that this is where Dante fell in love with his Beatrice, forming the basis of his masterpiece, "The Divine Comedy." Lining the famed Ponte Vecchio bridge since the 13th-century, these Florentine shops are a must-see. By royal decree, jewellers were once the only ones allowed to sell their wares on the bridge. To this day, you can still buy glittering jewellery from the local artisans. The heart of Florence is the Piazza della Signoria. This includes Palazzo Vecchio, the former home of the Medici family and also the Florentine Republic’s administrative center. Learn about how Medici power helped form the city that you see today. The Uffiizi is the most popular museum in Florence, and for good reason. It is filled with celebrated Italian Renaissance work. While wait times are usually long in the high season, this Florence in a Day tour includes skip-the-line Uffizi tickets, which means you're only one short security line away from the work, which includes Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Caravaggio’s Medusa, and many other masterpieces.
