Why Choose It?
- Explore Florence's two most beloved galleries and walkable historic center.
- Admire the finest Renaissance artwork with an expert guide.
- Follow our carefully crafted itinerary or choose what you want to do.
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 half-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 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.
This Orientation Tour with the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia is a longer version of our Orientation Tour of Florence. We have designed it to show you the best sites of this beautiful Renaissance city.

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022

This year we chose the Appian Way bike tour and the three pastas of Rome cooking class. Both of them were unforgettable!
First, the bike tour. I am a klutz, and the last time I was on a bike I had such a bad crash I never thought I’d do it again, but this was something my husband had wanted to do for a long time, so I nervously agreed. Our guid, Fabrizio, was amazing. He was patient with me and before long the beauty and aromas of the Via Appia Antica melted my fear. We got to experience the city I love so dearly I. A unique way, get some exercise, and learn so much about the city’s history. I absolutely recommend this experience, and we’re thankful we had Fabrizio as our guide. He was great!
That evening we got to celebrate my survival with the cooking class! Davide was our chef and he too was outstanding! Caccio e pepe, carbonara, and amatriciana are the three pastas. The class was wonderful. We were welcomed with Prosecco and a selection of cheeses, meats and olives. I’m a vegetarian but wanted to learn to make everything and was planning to just eat the caccio e pepe, but Davide grabbed some extra tomatoes and we made a pomodoro sauce that’s the best I’ve ever had just a wonderful experience! The location is beautiful, which adds to the ambience. Amazing as always, WIR! read less - 6/24/2022
