Highlights of Florence Accessible Private Tour

1This 6 hour, step-free Florence accessible private tour through the old city centre highlights art and architecture such as The Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and Michelangelo’s David.

Your Florence accessible tour will begin at Uffizi Gallery, with over 60 rooms housing more than 1600 paintings where your knowledgeable guide will expertly navigate the gallery’s many rooms as you touch on the most important pieces.

You will then break for lunch at an accessible Italian restaurant before visiting the religious city centre and Florence’s breathtaking cathedral— the Basilica di Santa Maria del Flore, also known as the “Duomo.” The spectacular dome of the cathedral was designed in the 15th century by Filippo Brunelleschi, and the colorful, intricate marble mosaic floors inside are truly remarkable.

From here you will follow the street down to the Palazzo Medici and the Accademia Gallery. Here you will see not only many famous paintings and sculptures, but also a gallery of musical instruments including a violin designed and played by the great Stradivarius. Finally, you will end the tour with perhaps the most celebrated, well-known sculpture in Florence, Michelangelo’s David!

If you enjoy art and history, you will love this accessible private tour of Florence!
