Tour description

Florence is home to some of the world’s finest art. During the Renaissance, its ruling family, the Medici, poured unfathomable amounts of money into its art and architecture. In doing so, they left the world such names as Leonardo Da Vinci Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, and Raphael. For many, meandering its cobbled piazzas and exploring its winding walkways is a dream. Our private Florence Tour with the Uffizi and Accademia can turn this dream into your reality.

For a city of such fame, Florence is surprisingly small. Our day trip will walk you through all the Renaissance city’s highlights. Your passionate, professional guide, who is fluent in your language, will bring Florence to life. Recounting stories about the city’s past that will give you an in-depth understanding and an unforgettable experience.

Your Florence tour begins at Brunelleschi’s Duomo

Florence’s Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (which most people know as the "Duomo") has bewildered architects for centuries. Its majestic cupola (dome), still the largest in Italy, was conceived by Filippo Brunelleschi all the way back in the 13th century. Just as impressive as the dome itself are the Tower of Giotto and cathedral facade. And just across from the Duomo stands the recently reopened Baptistery. Its beautiful bronze doors are an artwork of their own, representing Old Testament scenes that were the envy of contemporaries for their beauty and execution.

You then take a short stroll to the Ponte Vecchio

Our short walk south of the Duomo takes takes us past some other storied monuments. Towering above the Piazza della Signoria is Florence’s famous Palazzo Vecchio. This square was the political heartland of the Florentine Republic. The towering, crenellated palace which overshadows it was the seat of the Florentine government. Its fortress-like design speaks of the violence of the times, For it was here that politicians conspired against each other and from here that those conspirators who backed the wrong horse were hanged.

Connected to the Palazzo Vecchio via the Vasari Corridor (the Medici’s secret walkway) is the world-famous Ponte Vecchio. Once the home of butchers, the Ponte Vecchio has spanned the city’s river for centuries. Now it is awash with high-end jewelry shops, offering Florence’s visitors unforgettable souvenirs.

Explore the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia

No visit to Florence would be complete without a visit to the Uffizi Gallery. Home to some of the world's great Renaissance masterpieces, the Uffizi is waiting for you to explore it in the company of an expert guide. Discover the lives and styles of its artists. Admire the beauty of Botticelli's Birth of Venus and "Primavera". Marvel at the majestic portraiture of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. And lose yourself in the masterful use of light still radiating from Caravaggio's original artworks.

As well as the Uffizi, will be visiting the Accademia, home to sculptures whose beauty has never been matched. The gallery's centerpiece is Michelangelo's David, but there are many other works of his as well. See all of its highlights in the flesh to create unforgettable memories in this cradle of western culture. 

Finish by dining or visiting a landscaped garden

Your tour last five hours, and can be customized to suits your preferences. If you want to seek out some Florentine cuisine (like the famous bistecca alla fiorentina), sample some gelato in the city that invented it, or explore any other little-known sites in the Cradle of the Renaissance, we have expert recommendations for you.
