Your semi-private Florence walking tour begins at Piazza della Signoria where you will start your stroll through the medieval streets where famous artists like Dante, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci once called home. Soon enough you will be in Palazzo Vecchio where you can admire a replica of Michelangelo’s David, giving you a taste of what is to come.

Your next stop, you will be heading towards the renowned medieval bridge known as Ponte Vecchio where you can stop and admire the Arno River. Here you can take charming photos and browse the local jewelry shops nestled along both sides of the bridge. Once you are ready, your guide will walk you to the very center of Florence, the Piazza della Repubblica, which once housed the Roman Forum. Today the square is lined with great cafes and a central meeting point for Florentines.

Next, it is on to the Cathedral of Florence, commonly known as the Duomo. Take a moment to soak up the beautiful work of this icon of Florence with its detailed exterior in white, green, and red marble. Stare in awe while you learn about the talented architect Filippo Brunelleschi from your expert guide. Depending on crowds, you will enter the Cathedral to view the marvelous interior and the stunning frescos. No visit to the Duomo is complete without admiring the Baptistry, a small building just in front of the main doors. Take time to admire Michelangelo’s golden Gates of Paradise — three-ton bronze doors that tell the story of the Old Testament – a truly unique Renaissance masterpiece.

This tour ends by visiting the renowned Renaissance sculpture – Michelangelo’s David. Made from one piece of leftover marble, this 17-foot sculpture was created when Michelangelo was just 29 years old. Your expert guide will tell you stories of Michelangelo and his time in Florence, and how the Statue of David came to be.


Add the possibility of climbing the Duomo 30 minutes after the tour is over with skip-the-line tickets. In case it is sold out, you will be able to climb the bell tower of the Church instead. In addition, the tickets also include access to the Museo del Duomo. Please bear in mind that these are subject to availability and that we will need the full name and dates of birth of all participants in order to secure your climbs.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking.

  • Florence museum tour

    Fantastic tour to see both of the main museums in the city of Florence. Emanuela, our tour guide, was very kind and knew plenty of information about both museums.

  • Fantastic Florence City tour and the David

    We have done several LivTours in Europe in 2019, so when we were planning our trip to Italy I immediately contacted them again. As expected, we had another amazing experience with them. Barbara, our guide, knew so much information and was very easy to talk to. The day flew by as we walked, talked, saw amazing art and monuments. My mom struggled at some points during our walk, but Barbara took the time to check in and wait for her. The thoughtfulness of Barbara made the experience even better and the entire day very memorable. I recommend this tour as a way to see the city!

  • Better than we could have hoped for

    We booked the Walking Tour for our first visit to Florence. Our guide was Emilia, who was wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly, and so helpful. We learned so much and her pace was perfect. We had some non-tour related problems which she very generously helped us out with. It was over and beyond what we could have possibly hoped for. Thanks again Emilia.
