Overview
See the highlights of Renaissance Florence on a leisurely 3-hour walking tour featuring special-access entrance to the Florence Duomo that lets you enter without waiting in line. Follow a passionate local guide and small group of no more than 15 people, to see Michelangelo’s David, the Baptistery (outside), and the Piazza del Duomo. End with a city stroll that includes landmarks like the Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Orsanmichele Church, and Ponte Vecchio. This is a great way to pack the highlights of Renaissance Florence into a short amount of time. Due to Covid19, until the end of 2020, this tour will be amended to ensure your safety: Group size and tour duration may be reduced. This will be amended as as Covid restrictions relax in accordance with local regulations.
