What to expect

Join a half-day tour of Florence among art, landscapes and Renaissance masterpieces. The discovery begins from two of the most beautiful and romantic spots in the world: Piazzale Michelangelo and Fiesole, two unmissable destinations for landscape lovers!

A professional guide will be at your disposal for the whole morning, pointing out the main monuments of the city from these magnificent panoramic terraces: the unmistakable Brunelleschi's Dome, Palazzo Vecchio and the countless Romanesque-style churches dotting the whole city as well as Florence's rolling hills.

Then plunge into the city: stop at the famous Accademia Gallery first and admire Michelangelo's David, the unfinished works of art I Prigioni, San Matteo, Palestrina Pietà and other masterpieces by the great artist. You will learn some interesting facts about the tormented life of Michelangelo and why his masterpiece has become the symbol of Florence over the centuries.

The tour continues with a stroll through the historic streets of the city towards Piazza Duomo, where you will learn the secrets of Giotto’s Bell Tower and discover the beauty of the Baptistery with its golden, bronze doors (including the famous Porta del Paradiso). Last but not least, marvel at the breathtaking Cathedral.

Have you not had enough of so much beauty and art? Take advantage of the priority access to the Cathedral of Florence, which allows entering the eternal symbol of the city without stress by avoiding the long queues. You will be fascinated by the imposing naves illuminated by the stained glass windows and the rose window of the facade.

You can also choose to add a typical Tuscan lunch, which includes an appetizer, a first course and a dessert: the perfect conclusion for this unforgettable experience!
