Your morning begins with the Best of Florence tour – a comprehensive walking tour visiting the most famous cites of Florence’s city center such as the “Porcellino”, Ponte Vecchio and the Leather Market – including a visit inside the imposing Duomo.

 After a break in which you will be free to relax and enjoy lunch at a restaurant of your choosing or a place your guide would be happy to recommend, your afternoon Skip the Line tour at the Uffizi Gallery begins. Here you’ll have the chance to behold in person the immediately recognizable works of Botticelli -- “Birth of Venus” and “Primavera”. The Uffizi contains signature works of the Italian masters, including Michelangelo & DaVinci. Listen as your expert English speaking guide recount fascinating stories about the lives of the artists, celebrated architects, and wealthy patrons that contributed to the Gallery. This very special visit concludes atop the Gallery with a lovely view  of the city center from the rooftop terrace.
