Access to the Duomo
Uffizi Gallery , Piazzale degli Uffizi, 6, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy

Your guide will meet you near the Uffizi gallery, at the end of Piazzale degli Uffizi nearest the Arno River, just at the base of a statue of Galileo Galilei (if you are facing the Arno River, it is the statue in the right corner).

This activity will end right where it started.
Start the day with skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s 'David.' Nothing prepares you for the scale of this sculptural masterpiece. Your guide helps you appreciate the artistry from every angle, including the techniques Michelangelo used to make marble look smooth as butter.

The highlight of the city walking tour is the Florence Cathedral, whose incredible red dome is the city’s crown jewel. The dome was not without challenges for architect Filippo Brunelleschi, as your guide explains while you view the masterpiece from outside. Entrance to the Duomo is always free, so you can come back at any time to explore the cathedral in more depth, equipped with an abundance of knowledge shared by your expert, local guide.

Your tour continues through the historic center of Florence, taking in the Piazza Signoria, where 'David' once stood.

Skip the line once more at the Uffizi Gallery. Our coordinator will hand you the ticket to enter this immense gallery where you will visit at your own pace, wasting no time in showcasing works by Da Vinci, Botticelli, and Titian. Don’t forget to rub the nose of 'Il Porcellino,' Pietro Tacca’s Baroque bronze boar sculpture, to bring the rest of your vacation good luck.

Whether you’re only in Florence for a day or settling in for a longer stay, this is the perfect introduction to a city where beauty awaits around every corner.

Day in Florence
Donna_J
, May 2022
This was a good tour and we learned alot about history and the Florence area. My only concern is that the tour is split in 2 parts and it was not entirely clear how the afternoon at Uffizi was supposed to go. It worked out fine but we did have to ask at the end of the morning session to find out the time and confirm the meeting spot.

Was told it would be a guided tour of the Academia but it was not. Was not informed of how to get the Uffizi part of the tour. Very disappointed. Guide was good, but company should have followed up in writing on where and when to meet for the Uffizi.

Do not take this tour. It was not as described. The guide gave very little useful information and some of it was incorrect. The tour was overpriced and a waste of time. Several others in our group felt the same.

We never went inside the Uffizi museum which was very disappointing. This was the third tour I went on through aviator abs the only one I was disappointed with.

Our tour guide, Annette, was very knowledgeable. She gave a narrated tour from the Ponte Vecchio to the Accademia that was extremely informative. There she gave us our tickets to enter the Accademia and see Michelangelo’s David as well as other art works without narration. We obtained our tickets to the Uffizzi from another City Wonders agent three hours later near the entrance. This tour was without narration, and where we were supposed to enter was confusing. The line was long but moved quickly. There was a very large crowd inside, which overwhelmed my wife and me, but our two adult children pressed on and enjoyed seeing art works by many different masters.
