    Stop At: Gallerie Degli Uffizi, Piazzale degli Uffizi 6, 50122, Florence Italy

    From the Accademia, it’s only a 15-minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery, but you’ll pack a lot of sights into a little city strolling. Chief among them is the Piazza del Duomo. Here you’ll stand in the shadow of one of the largest domes in the world and learn how the colossal church beneath it was designed and built by a group of Renaissance geniuses who were as quarrelsome as they were visionary. You’ll also see the famous Florence Baptistery Doors, cast in bronze by Lorenzo Ghiberti and admired so much by Michelangelo that he dubbed them the ‘Gates of Paradise’.

    Duration: 2 hours

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

    Your tour starts early, near the Accademia Gallery, where you’ll meet your group of maximum 24 fellow travelers and your expert, local guide. With one of the first entrance tickets at the Accademia, you’ll head right inside and see Michelangelo’s ‘David’ before much of the crowds show up. David is one of the greatest single works of art in the world. As you stand beneath him, your guide will tell you the story of his creation, as well as the story of its creator, the mercurial genius, Michelangelo Buonarroti.

    Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

    Pass By: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

    As you walk between the Accademia and the Uffizi you’ll pass a number of important sights, including Florence Duomo & Piazza della Signoria, which your guide will give you background on.

    Viola was amazing! Very knowledgeable, a delight. Gave great recommendations for lunch & gelato. The ear piece made it easy to hear without being on top of each other. Wish we had more time to explore this amazing city.
