A perfect itinerary for first-time visitors to Florence who also want to see the original David


This walking tour of the city also includes an internal visit to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's original David in all of its breathtaking glory. The rest of our stroll will comprise Florence's must-see sites, including the city's religious heart with its amazing Gothic Cathedral and Baptistery and the Piazza della Signoria, the city's political hub, just to name two locations of the many we'll visit. While this tour can be considered very "classic" in that it will introduce you to Florence's most iconic sites and monuments, what won't be "classic" is the perspective from which you'll be approaching the subjects, since you'll be seeing them through the eyes of a true Florentine who knows the story of every single stone of her beloved city and has a passion for sharing the history. Even if you've taken a walking tour of Florence before, I'm sure you'll see it differently with me.

Itinerary

Our three-hour stroll along a route filled with the fantastic sites and rich history of Florence will begin and end at your doorstep and includes an internal visit to the Accademia. You can feel free to request short breaks as desired. The itinerary will be planned according to the location of your hotel as our starting and ending point, so does not have a standard/fixed route, but you'll find a partial list of the sites you can expect to see below.

-Ponte Vecchio

Please contact me before booking this tour. I make your reservations at the Accademia Gallery as part of this tour and you will pay for your tickets on site.
