Discover the best treasures of Florence with this walking tour

Starting from your hotel, this exciting day tour initiates with the Cathedral, where you will see the Campanile, Gotti’s Bell Tower, which perfectly exemplifies the Gothic style of Florence. You will then enter the Baptistery of St John, noting the enormous bronze doors. Try to imagine the time it must have taken to adhere to each of the thousands of pieces that went into the magnificent mosaics within the octagonal interior.

Heading back into the city center, you will visit the Academy Museum which was initiated in the 16th century as a drawing school, before being extended to a general art school now known as Accademia di Belle Arti – The Academy of Beautiful Arts. This is the home of many famous sculptures, but the real crowd-pleaser is the original David by Michelangelo, created by a 26-year-old Michelangelo in 1501.
