Florence, Uffizi Gallery and the David in 1 day. Skip the line at the museums!
If you want to get the most out of your day in Florence, this tour is the best choice as it covers the most interesting spots of Florence as well as the city's greatest art galleries, the Uffizi and the Accademia. During the tour you will be able to explore the city and its various aspects, from art and history, to food and wine traditions, from daily life to ancient legends and fascinating mysteries.
During our visit I will focus on the highlights of the Uffizi collection of Renaissance paintings. In the Accademia besides the masterpiece of Michelangelo, monumental David statue we will have a chance to get a closer look to some other XV ct art, and the collection of the musical instruments, including string instruments from the Medici Court.
I propose this tour Saturdays and Sundays.
Piazza del Duomo is the religious centre of the city. We will discover here one of the oldest architectonical monuments, the Baptistery, the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Bell-Tower.
Guided visit of the Accademia Gallery.
Piazza della Repubblica, the square is famous for its historic caffès and pastry shops.
Our next stop will be Orsanmichele, a special church in Florence with a fascinating history.
We will walk towards the former straw market that the Florentines call "Mercato del Porcellino" and from there to Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence.
We will also admire the Uffizi building, right next to
Piazza della Signoria, an open air museum unique in Tuscany and even in Italy with its magnificent statues.

Our tour in Florence with Simonida was a 5 out of 5 and even higher. She helped us with things prior to our arrival and she was on time and quite prepared. She is personable, very knowledgeable and presents everything clearly and with vigor. She made great adjustments to accommodate some time issues. Having her join us for lunch was a pleasure. We highly recommend her without any reservation
