The meeting point is in front of Palazzo Strozzi in Piazza Strozzi (Strozzi Square), where you will find your guide holding a sign with “Avventure Bellissime & tour name” written on it
What To Expect
Head first toward the historic Ponte Vecchio, stretched over the Arno River. Your guide points 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 takes 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 parts 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.
