The ideal way to discover Florence is your own way! Choose a morning or afternoon tour – or book them both, with lunch included, for a comprehensive introduction to this classic Renaissance city. Even better, you'll gain quick access to the Uffizi and Accademia galleries and skip the queues.

A short walk brings you to the Accademia Gallery (*) which houses the statue of David by Michelangelo. The morning tour concludes here, or you can choose to end your morning tour with lunch at a restaurant in the town center (optional).
Florence afternoon tour:

Next you'll visit the Uffizi Gallery (**) to admire superb paintings by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Giotto. The tour concludes at the Uffizi.
