Skip the Line: Small-Group Florence Renaissance Walking Tour with Accademia Gallery

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin in Piazza Strozzi in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide and hit the streets with your small group.

    Head first toward the historic Ponte Vecchio, stretched over the Arno River. Your guide will point out the Vasari Corridor overhead, the city’s secret passageway. Constructed in the 16th-century by Cosimo I, the corridor once allowed members of the Medici family to travel stealthily through the city. Today, it houses one of the world's most impressive collections of self-portraits. 

    Continue through the old neighborhood of poet Dante Alighieri and the bustling Piazza della Signoria, where the Palazzo Vecchio sits. Stroll past the prominent Uffizi Gallery, which hosts some of the most famous Renaissance artwork, before making your way to the Florence Duomo. Admire Brunelleschi’s Dome, Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery.

    After exploring the city by foot, head straight inside the Accademia Gallery, skipping the long lines with a priority access ticket.

    Michelangelo is the focal point of the Accademia, and your guide will take you through some of his most important works on display. Admire the unfinished sculptures, San Matteo and Prigioni, before making your way to the iconic David. Examine the lifelike contours of veins and muscles, crafted from Carrera marble.

    Your guide will part ways with your group after passing David, but you can continue exploring the gallery at your own pace for as long as you’d like, admiring works from Botticelli, Orcagna and more.
