Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Ponte Vecchio, 50125, Florence Italy

Walk with me over the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) as I share the history of this beloved bridge that was spared in WWII and today is filled with charming shops filled with unique gold and other jewellery.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

Upon arriving in Piazza della Signoria, Florence’s main square, you will see the fake David and the buildings of the Florentine city hall and county government offices, as well as Neptune’s Fountain and Loggia dei Lanzi.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Duomo – Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, Via della Canonica, 1 Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy

It’s hard to imagine the sheer size of the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, also referred to as the Duomo of Florence, until you turn a corner and are overwhelmed by the beauty and height of Brunelleschi’s famous dome, Giotto’s colorful Bell Tower, and the carved bronze Baptistery doors across from the entrance of the main church.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Galleria dell’Accademia, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50122, Florence Italy

I will book skip-the-line entrance tickets so that we will quickly enter into this next site at a predetermined time (4 people max each time, if more than 4 people in your group ,you will need to enter first one group and then the second), the ticket is not included and is approximately 18 Euro per person to be paid directly at the entrance. You will then experience one of the highlights of Florence at this small but very important museum called Galleria dell’Accademia. This museum features Michelangelo’s original David and his stunning unfinished sculptures, Slaves. It is still under debate whether he was unable to complete them or left them intentionally unfinished to symbolize the struggle of humankind to escape material bondage. You can also enjoy a tiny collection of rare musical instruments in the museum,.
Important Notes:
This museum is closed on Mondays, it will be substituted when necessary
Please book as far ahead as possible to ensure availability of times and tickets.
