Your 3 hour Florence Private Tour will start when you meet our private guide at the entrance of the Academy Museum. Our guides are all fully licensed and, as well as being very knowledgeable, they really love their city. This passion will shine through from start to finish when you book a private tour of Florence with RPG. First on your Florence highlights tour, you will gain access to the Academy Museum through the priority entrance line, thanks to our skip the line tickets. The main attraction of the Academy Museum is Michelangelo’s David, but it is full of the work of other great artists too, such as Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Pontormo, Andrea del Sarto, Alessandro Allori and many more.
From the Academy Museum our guide will lead you to the religious center of Florence, where your Florence private tour will cover the religious history of the city. You will see the Duomo of Florence: the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Flower. For the Duomo it is not possible to reserve tickets in advance therefore the tour does not include a visit inside. You can decide with your guide to visit the Duomo inside if their is not too much queue.
The second part of your Private Tour of Florence will bring you from the religious center, where you will reach the political heart of the city: Signoria Square. You will admire Palazzo Vecchio and the many Renaissance statues adorning the square. You will also reach the iconic Old Bridge (called Ponte Vecchio in Italian). It is a Medieval arch bridge over the Arno River, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common practice. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. Why don't you pick up a little keepsake, to remind you of your Florence Highlights tour?!
The Florence Private Tour tour will end at the Holy Cross Church, burial place of many important Italian artists and scientists, such as Michelangelo and Galileo.
