Take a half day to see Florence's most popular highlights

Your highlights tour starts with one of the first entries of the day into the Accademia Gallery, Florence. With fewer people in the gallery, you'll be able to see Michelangelo's David in relative peace. Even better, your local expert guide will tell you all about its history and the way this singular statue changed Western art. While most people just see David and leave, you'll stop by Michelangelo’s unfinished Slaves and hear more insight into the life of the famously-tortured Michelangelo.

Your highlights tour starts with one of the first entries of the day into the Accademia Gallery, Florence. With fewer people in the gallery, you'll be able to see Michelangelo's David in relative peace. Even better, your local expert guide will tell you all about its history and the way this singular statue changed Western art. While most people just see David and leave, you'll stop by Michelangelo’s unfinished Slaves and hear more insight into the life of the famously-tortured Michelangelo.

After the Accademia, you'll stroll through town, pausing at sights like the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Baptistery and the Palazzo Vecchio, to learn about the history of this formidable city and the central role it played in the Italian Renaissance.

Then it's time for the greatest collection of Renaissance paintings in the world. The Uffizi's collection is so vast that it tends to overwhelm even seasoned art experts. For this reason our guides have created a very special, chronological itinerary through the galleries that not only takes you to see the highlights (works by Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Giotto, Duccio, and of course, Boticelli's Primavera), it helps situate them in time so you actually understand what makes them so important to the history of art.

Uffizi and Accademia tickets are both included in the price of this tour so you get in and get out with no hassle or waiting in line. At a time when many visitors are just getting to their first museum, you'll have seen the best of Florence's two main attractions. With the rest of the day ahead of you, get some restaurant and sight-seeing recommendations from your guide and head off into the city. For anyone who wants to see the best of Florence without taking a whole day to do it, this is the perfect morning.

I thought Greta was excellent and clearly knew her stuff. She also gave recommendations for food (which I followed and was immensely satisfied with) after the tour.

GRETA WAS A WONDERFUL TOUR GUIDE, VERY INFORMATIVE AND PATIENT WITH THE CROWDS AROUND US. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A TOUR WITH GRETA.
