Best of Florence Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line at Michelangelo’s ‘David’
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Galleria dell'Accademia, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50122, Florence Italy
Michelangelo’s ‘David’ is a must-see for every visitor to Florence, resulting in lines as mind-blowing as the statue itself. This tour includes Skip-the-Line Access to the Accademia Gallery, so you can appreciate ‘David’ and still have time to see all Florence has to offer. Your expert guide will give you the back on Michelangelo’s sculpture, and explain what sets it apart from thousands of imitators. You’ll also see Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Slaves’ and learn what this work in progress reveals about the artist’s technique.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy
How do you follow a sight like ‘David’? Towering over Duomo Square, the red dome of Florence Cathedral has become the emblem of the city. Its architect, Filippo Brunelleschi, invented entirely new construction processes to realise his vision, as your guide will explain. You’ll also hear about the cathedral’s interior; it’s open for free to the public, so you can come back any time to appreciate these features in full.
As the tour continues, you’ll see iconic sights like the Ponte Vecchio bridge and discover overlooked delights like the leather market. All the while, your guide will share tales of Florentine industry and artistry through the ages.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about art and history and showed us the very best of Firenze. So thankful for her.
We had an excellent walking tour. Claudia was an excellent guide. It was a rainy day but she kept us moving along at a great pace. She is so knowledgeable of the art and architecture of Florence. Her English is excellent. She added tips on other places to go as well.
Do this and enjoy so much more of everything! I promise you, this is worth every penny and you will not regret it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Florence. Antonio was our tour guide and we was enthusiastic and very informative.Thank you!
Really enjoyed this tour. Valentina our guide was really knowledgeable and engaging. David statue was awesome. Loved the wandering through medieval areas which I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. A good grounding of the city
Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. She explained interesting facts about David and Florence. A must visit in Florence!!
Daniella was amazing! Very informative, pleasant, just the right amount of energy for a morning tour :) highly recommend the tour including the skip the line! Got much more out of the museum with Daniella’s guided tour!
Valentina did a great job of sharing the historical highlights and characters of Florence in a “behind the scenes” kind of way really bringing them to life in an interesting and entertaining way. This tour was a great way to introduce us to Florence before deep-diving into specific museums and galleries. Thank you Valentina for a great first impression of Florence
Lines for the museum were already long early in the morning. So the skip the line option is the way to go. Tour guide was very knowledgeable.
We've done multiple Viator tours and they've all provided good value. This tour was no exception. From beginning to end the experience was informative and positive. If you are new to a city, I recommend doing at least one tour like this, it brings context to the area and allows you to figure out where you want to focus the rest of your time.
We just did this tour 2 days ago. Valentina, tour guide, was wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. She walked and talked at a great pace, not too fast, not to slow.
Misleading info online caused us to miss the starting time. Be sure to read very fine print and scroll thru many screens to get correct meeting time.
David and the gallery was bit rushed. I would have loved to spend more time there.....David and other sculptures were mind blowing and I am not even into art. Overall nice tour.
Paulina was a fabulous guide. She was very informative, interesting, professional, and engaging! We loved learning all we could from Paulina about the history and tips she had to offer on this amazing city.
Skipping the line to get in to the Accademia Gallery and see the David is the best way. Our tour guide was Valentina. She was so knowledgeable and educated us about Florence, Michelangelo, the history, the art. It was a great tour. We highly recommend it. You can take photos of David- no flash. Wear comfortable shoes.
Worth the money. Great guide. Suggest making this tour the first of the visit to get an overall perspective of Florence.
We enjoyed our tour so much. We learned so much more than we could ever have gotten just from going on our own.
