Start your Tour from the very heart of Florence, aboard of a comfortable luxury minivan.
Your English-speaking driver will lead you along the romantic Viale dei Colli up to Piazzale Michelangelo to admire the wonderful panorama of the city, one of the most beautiful in the world. This view will leave you breathless and will allow you to embrace the entire city from its most famous hilltop.
The tour will proceed through the old city center with the Guided Visit of the renowned Accademia Gallery, with a total immersion in the art of Michelangelo to know his most renowned works, the “David”, and other important masterpieces such as ''I Prigioni'', ''San Matteo'' and the “Palestrina Pietà”.
The young Michelangelo carved the David from a huge block of rough marble in three years, creating an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the renaissance model.

Then you will proceed with a walking Tour which will include the outdoor guided visit of San Lorenzo Church and the Duomo complex: San Giovanni Baptistery with its bronze doors as the famous Porta del Paradiso and the Cathedral with the magnificent Cupola del Brunelleschi and Giotto’s bell tower. The walk continues along lively Via Calzaiuoli in the heart of the city, where you can admire the imposing and singular Orsanmichele Church, a masterpiece of Florentine gothic art, decorated with shrines with statues of the patron saints of the powerful medieval trade guilds. Then you reach the bustling Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market): don’t forget to rub the nose of the famous "porcellino" (pig) and toss a coin into the fountain to bring you good luck!

A few steps away you will find yourself in Piazza Signoria, one of the most beautiful squares in the world and political center of the city. In this “open-air museum”, you will be fascinated by the beautiful Fountain of Neptune with the imposing marble statue of Ammannati and by the sculptural masterpieces of the Loggia dei Lanzi, including the Perseus by Cellini and the Rape of the Sabines by Giambologna. Dominating the square is the majestic Palazzo Vecchio with Arnolfo's crenellated tower, one of the most famous symbols of Florence that you can admire in all its magnificence.

Then, by following from the outside the spectacular elevated path of the Vasari Corridor you will arrive at the romantic and picturesque Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, and you will end this amazing tour admiring its renowned jewellery shops!

Florence and Accademia: an unforgettable experience
Daniel Robison, 02/2020
We had a wonderful time yesterday with our nice guide in Florence! We went to Piazale Michelangelo, from where the view of the city is breathtaking, we saw the original Michelangelo's David inside the Accademia museum and we enjoyed a lovely walking tour in the historic centre. I totally recommend this tour! Thanks Caf Tours!
Highly recommended

Amazing experience! Me and my friends decided to book this tour because we wanted to visit the famous Piazzale Michelangelo and the Accademia to see the David having only a few hours available, and the choice was perfect! The guide was so fun and engaging and the view of Florence from Piazzale Michelangelo was simply breathtaking! We got inside the museum very quickly despite the busy day and the way the guide introduced us to the David was definitely the highlight of the day! Left the museum we walked up to the beautiful Cathedral square, where the tour ended with an absorbing description of all the surrounding monuments. The price was really affordable and it's worth every penny! Higly recommended!
Good Florence and Accademia tour

We booked a morning guided tour of Florence with the visit to the Academia Gallery. Special thanks to our guide, she made the museum visit fascinating and funny, even if we are not so familiar with art.
The best guide
Alfred Gleeson, 05/2020
The best guide I have ever had. Out guide talked slowly (I am sure the two children in the group could easily follow), with a lot of emotion and gesticulation; his story was structured to give you a sense of the overall trends of the time (it was much more than a sequence of interesting facts). Breathtaking view from Piazzale Michelangelo, a must see if you go to Florence!
Super interesante

Une excursion très bien organisée! Rien à dire. Meme si on n'a pas l'abitude à reserver ces types de tour, cette fois là on a voulu donné une chance à cette agence et nous sommes vraiment très contents! Piazzale Michelangelo c'est une des choses les plus belles qu'on a vues à Florence et le David simplement magnifique. Merci à la guide que nous a entretenus pendant tout le matin.
