Tour Details

Chances are, when you think of the Renaissance, you think of the cultural wonders it provided, such as Michelangelo's breathtaking art, as well as the sculptures, architecture, and writings of so many other Renaissance greats. This tour features the best of the Renaissance throughout Florence. Tour the city with a knowledgeable guide, who will escort you to the best locations, including Piazzale Michelangelo, The Duomo, Accademia Gallery, Basilica di Santa Croce, Piazza Signoria, and the Uffizi Gallery.

First, your Florence full day tour heads to Fiesol, a delightful town of Etruscan origin located on a hill overlooking the beautiful views of Florence. Then after a romantic drive through Viale dei Colli to Piazzale Michelangelo. Embrace the heart of Florence in this famous square, which was built in the 14th century and named after the famous artist, Michelangelo. You can enjoy the views of all must see places in Florence, including the River Arno, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, the Basilica di Santa Croce, and Palazzo Vecchio. Don't miss the chance to take a panoramic photo of Florence or just admire some of the best views of the city.

Immerse yourself in the brilliance of Michelangelo Buonarroti's creations as you visit the world-renowned Accademia Gallery on your Florence tour. This museum was built to encompass one of Michelangelo's greatest artistic accomplishments, "David," but also features the unfinished San Matteo and the four Prigioni. From the Accademia, enjoy an exterior guided visit of San Lorenzo Church and the stunning Duomo complex: San Giovanni Baptistery with its bronze doors including the famous Porta del Paradiso, and the Cathedral with the magnificent Cupola del Brunelleschi and the elegant Giotto’s bell tower.

Next, you'll have a break for lunch (at your own expense) before continuing to discover the historic city center and the exterior of the Church of Santa Croce. Admire original decorations in the Gothic style, the whitewashed frescoes by Giotto, sculptures by Donatello, and other early Renaissance paintings. Crossing Ponte alle Grazie, a pleasant guided walk on the left side of the Arno River will allow you to admire the elegant architecture of the Uffizi Gallery and a striking birds eye view of the Vasari Corridor. Head into the ancient Church of Santa Felicita and take in the amazing colours of two masterpieces by Pontormo, hosted in the Chapel designed by Brunelleschi. Then cross the iconic Ponte Vecchio to Piazza Signoria, with the imposing Palazzo Vecchio and the beautiful Loggia del Lanzi, where the sculptures of great Renaissance artists are collected.

Finally, visit the Uffizi Gallery that contains quite simply the world's finest collection of Renaissance art. Admire the superb paintings by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Your tour concludes at the Uffizi Terrace. Stay in the museum, or head outside and enjoy the early evening's street performers. Performances can range from violin duets to people dressed as sculptures.
