DESCRIPTION

Florence Accademia & Duomo – Guided Walking Tour In Florence, 3hrs


If you only have one day for a tour in Florence, go for this one.  3 hour tour that covers two of the major monuments: Accademia and the Duomo.

We’d recommend that you combine this tour  with our Spirit of Florence tour.   Again, people will think you’re mad not seeing THE David in Florence.  So, make time for it.

It’s also essential because we organise pre-reserved tickets so you do not lose time waiting in a long line while you’re on holiday. Some people just remember their Italian holidays as long lines.

Accademia Galleries

Michelangelo created David for the Duomo and completed in 1504, when Michelangelo  was just a young man of twenty-nine. It was originally placed in the political heart of Florence, in Piazza della Signoria and then was moved indoors.

The story of David was ever-popular in art throughout the 15th century as a symbol of the strength and truth of good over evil. So, the copy replaced in Piazza della Signoria in 1910,  still guards over the city of Florence.

The Duomo and the Baptistry:

Dominating the skyline of Florence, the imponent Cathedral of Florence is an artistic wonder for its size and for its the amazing marble decorations. You’ll walk through the beauty of priceless treasures of Gothic and Renaissance art.
The dome of the cathedral is very famous for many reasons like its size and mosaics. It’s a very small group or a private tour anyway so the experience is quite intimate. 

Your local guide will also include a visit to the Dome. At the end of the tour, you can climb the dome and the bell tower to admire scenic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscany.


Right in front of the cathedral Santa Maria Del Fiore, you will see the Baptistry famous with its doors. These are the Gates of Paradise but what you’ll see here are the copies of the original. Please note this tour doesn’t include the Museum. If you’d like to do a tour that includes the Museum, please book The Duomo Complex Tour

Both the Accademia and the Duomo are very famous for many reasons and rightly so they are notorious with the difficulty to get tickets. This tour is a great investment to save your time and to appreciate the potentially overwhelming series of art works with a scholarly local guide who manages to be fun at the same time. 

You’ll either be in a very small group of max 8 or a private tour anyway so the experience is quite intimate.

The tour will end at one of the Squares so you can ask your guide for options of the best places to eat or drink an aperitivo.

Join our Accamedia and Duomo tour in Florence to get it all in a compact package led by a scholarly and local guide.

You can choose to go private or join a small group of max 8 so the experience is always intimate.
