Half Day Private Tour of Florence with Academy Gallery

Florence is a Renaissance city of orange and gold, blossoming above the golden landscape of Tuscany. Join this Florence private tour and discover its dramatic history, alongside all its beauty. Get skip-the-line access to Michelangelo’s David and enjoy a walking tour of historic Florence with your expert guide’s undivided attention.
Meet your guide at your hotel before you embark on a walking tour of Florence’s pedestrianized historic center. Discover the icons of its architecture, including Florence’s Cathedral; designed by goldsmith Brunelleschi after a design competition. Go on to the Loggia dei Lanzi – one of the world’s first open air galleries.
Enter the Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David – all 17ft of him – in the flesh. Then, head to the Ponte Vecchio; the most stunning bridge, which perfectly frames the Tuscan countryside beyond. Before you leave, make sure to rub the nose of the boar, Il Porcelino – legend has it that, if you do, you’ll return to Florence!
