Florence Day Tour with Accademia & Uffizi Galleries Tour Itinerary

For lovers of art and architecture, Florence is often referred to as the ‘Cradle of Renaissance’. As it turns out, this nickname is completely deserved, as the entire city is alive with fascinating history and a huge selection of museums that feature artwork from many of Italy’s most legendary figures.

This immersive one-day tour begins in the best possible way as you soak up some spectacular panoramic views. Enjoy the breathtaking vistas of the city from the terraces of the Piazzale Michelangelo on the southern bank of the Arno River, as well as from the charming hillside town of Fiesole.

Next, we’ll dive right into the city with our first stop being the Accademia Gallery, which is home to a variety of priceless masterpieces, including Michelangelo’s unmistakable ‘David’. Moving onwards, we’ll stroll through the tight labyrinth of ancient streets as we come to the Piazza Duomo. Here, we’ll take a break and enjoy some wonderful Tuscan-style cuisine.

From the picturesque city center, we’ll make our way around to a myriad of nearby must-see sites. Starting by admiring the Basilica of Santa Croce, your professional guide will be able to offer you stunning insight into the amazing stories behind these landmark venues.

Next, you’ll head to the immense Piazza della Signoria, Florence’s main square that’s bustling with people and striking architecture, such as the Palazzo Vecchio and the arches of the Loggia de’ Lanzi featuring Cellini’s famous sculpture, ‘Perseus with the Head of Medusa’.

Following this, we’ll continue to one of Florence’s most significant symbols – the Ponte Vecchio. This medieval stone bridge spans across the Arno River and has got some enthralling history, including being spared from bombings during World War II, along with many other tales that your guide will recount.

Saving the best for last, our Florence Day Tour reaches its final stop at the world-class Uffizi Gallery. Home to a spectacular range of Renaissance-era painting and sculpture, this sprawling museum takes over the entire two floors of a beautiful 16th-century structure designed by Giorgio Vasari. Showcasing works by the likes of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, this gallery is simply incredible.

A wonderful way to see the sites of Florence within a single day, this tour of Florence is a comprehensive look at one of the world’s most stunning cities.
