Full-Day Tour of Florence with Accademia and Uffizi Galleries and Typical Lunch

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at Piazza Adua in central Florence and hop aboard an air-conditioned coach for the journey to Fiesole. Soak up the scenery as you climb up into hills just north of Florence, then jump out to admire the views from the high vantage point.

    Hop back on the bus and make a beeline for Piazzale Michelangelo in the Oltrarno neighborhood, another prime lookout point. Gaze out over the Arno River, spot landmarks like Brunelleschi’s Dome and Palazzo Vecchio from afar and pose for photos by the bronze statue of Michelangelo’s David.

    Continue your tour in the historic center of Florence and keep your camera close by as you pass the magnificent Duomo and Baptistery, the striking Basilica di Santa Croce and the palazzos of Piazza Signoria. After your morning tour, break for lunch at a local restaurant and re-fuel with a scrumptious menu of traditional Tuscan cuisine.

    Start your afternoon tour with a visit to the first of Florence’s two great galleries – the Accademia Gallery, and beat the crowds with skip-the-line entrance. Inside, you’ll be captivated by works from artists like Michelangelo, Giambologna and Botticelli, but be sure to visit the gallery’s star attraction - Michelangelo’s original ‘David’ sculpture, upheld as the symbol of Florence.

    The final stop is the Uffizi Gallery, home to Renaissance wonders including Titian's ‘Venus of Urbino’ and Botticelli's ‘Primavera’. Skip the queue with priority entrance, then feast your eyes on priceless paintings from the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Caravaggio. Your tour ends here, so either stay on to further explore the galleries or make your own way back to your hotel.

    We went on this tour at the end of December. The beginning of the tour was ok with an Italian guide providing Italian and English translation. We went to the top of Florence and were given some time to take photos. We were then told...More
