Experience

Highlights

Full description
Florence sightseeing tours are a great way to get a well-rounded introduction to the city’s past and present. Having an experienced tour guide by your side will save you from walking around with your head stuck in a guidebook or a map half of the time.

Booking this Uffizi Gallery and Florence Walking Tour will allow you to enjoy views while learning more about the city. Under the experienced leadership of an expert guide, you will explore the main landmarks and hotspots in Florence’s city center. You will receive wireless earphones so that you can hear the guide's commentary clearly.

However, the benefits don’t stop there. Visiting the Uffizi Gallery on this tour will guarantee you a lucrative skip-the-line entry. Uffizi is, unfortunately, also famous for its excruciatingly long waiting times. With this tour, you will avoid queuing to buy and collect the tickets as well as the subsequent queuing to enter the museum (each of the tasks has its own long line).
