Be sure to keep an eye on the gallery’s calendar for special exhibitions and other events that take place year-round.

Ponte Vecchio

The most famous bridge in Florence is called Ponte Vecchio. It is the city’s oldest bridge and has quite a fascinating history. Take a stroll along this unique bridge and browse the selection of locally crafted art, jewellery, and other souvenirs. If you are visiting the bridge towards the end of the day, take a seat on a bench to watch the colourful sunset!

Accademia Gallery

Home to the famous Statue of David, the Accademia Gallery is a must visit when you’re in Florence. The gallery first opened in the late 1700s and has housed an impressive collection of statues and other artwork ever since. Here, you will find work by artists including Michelangelo, Domenico, Alessandro Allori, and more.

Spend the morning on an Accademia tour to learn about the historic artwork with a professional licensed guide. You will also receive skip-the-line tickets, which means you don’t have to worry about potential crowds!

Florence Duomo

The Florence Duomo, or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, dominates the skyline of Florence. It took just under 200 years to complete this landmark and it’s no wonder why! The outside of the Duomo itself is quite the attraction to see. However, you must go inside the Duomo to explore the art and gorgeous architecture. If you’re up for the challenge, climb the 463 steps to the top of the dome and take in the panoramic views of the city.

Learn even more about the Duomo on an afternoon tour. Included in the tour is an access pass to the Duomo, which is valid for 3 days!
