Visit Florence with a local tour guide and learn about the city’s fascinating history

Florence is best known for being the birthplace of the Renaissance, but did you know the city actually dates back to Roman times? Find all that out and more as you wander the stunning streets with your English-speaking guide. They’ll tell you all about the foundations of the city and the medieval period. And of course, the Renaissance when the Medici family came to power. The family revolutionised Europe with their banking practices and became unimaginably wealthy. And they used their riches to usher in a new era of revolutionary art and science which still has effects today. 

See the most important sites in Florence as you explore the city on foot

Part of the Medici’s fortunes went into the architecture of Florence and its iconic Duomo Cathedral. That’s one of the many sites in the historic centre you’ll visit, along with the Piazza della Signoria and its Palazzo Vecchio, the Baptistery and the “Gates of Paradise,” Giotto’s belltower and Brunelleschi’s Dome. You’ll struggle to find a tour of Florence that shows you more!

Skip the line at the Accademia Gallery and see the world’s most famous statue

Where is the Statue of David? Florence Accademia Gallery. And that’s where you’ll go after your tour of Florence. Not only will you come face to face with the 17-foot-tall Statue of David, one of the most famous sculptures in the world, but you’ll also see Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures Prigioni and San Matteo. As if that’s not enough, there are works from some of Italian history’s greatest artists in the museum too, such as Botticelli, Uccello, and del Sarto. Your guide will help you discover them.
