What to Expect
In the early morning, you’ll head to Piazza San Marco to meet your guide and head straight inside Florence’s Accademia Gallery with your skip-the-line ticket. Make your way straight to the masterpiece of Michelangelo’s David, and hear how the statue came to symbolize the Florentine Republic, before you admire the artist’s unfinished I Prigioni works.
Stroll onward to Florence Baptistery to learn about the Medici, the de facto rulers of Renaissance Florence—many of whom were baptized in the monument. From the baptistery, you’ll step inside the Florence Duomo museum and step back in time as you see how the original façade once looked. Head into the duomo itself, and get close-up looks at some of the sites that are roped-off to the general public.
Finish on a high note as you ascend to the duomo’s terraces and climb a little further, if you wish to reach the top. Your tour ends at the terraces.

There is so much to say about how wonderful this tour was! First, our tour guide, Angelo, was spectacular! He made sure we were right at the front of the line to get in to see David. He took us to all the right spots...More
Let me start by saying our tour guide Vanessa was FANTASTIC! She was animated and passionate when discussing all of the artwork. The level of detail that she went into when describing the history of the Duomo and select pieces of art was spellbinding.
Meeting point was easy to find and meet the tour operators, they supplied ear phones so you can hear the operator speak thru out the tour and was well informed
Worth paying the extra money to skip the lines and going straight in while seeing...More
