Splendor of Florence & Michelangelo's David

Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance, offers so many treasures of art and architecture that its entire historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fortunately with the highlights so centrally located, it is ideally suited to a walking tour. You'll stop at the Piazza Michelangelo for an overview of the city's tiled roofs, steeples and domes.


Visit the Accademia Gallery for an up-close introduction to Michelangelo’s famous David. The 17-foot-tall statue depicts not the king, but the youthful shepherd who slew Goliath. You’ll have a reserved time for entering to avoid the long line. Have a look at the exterior of the Cathedral (Duomo) of Santa Maria del Fiore, its elaborate Gothic façade covered in a mix of pink and green marble. View the statues in the Piazza della Signoria on your way to the Ponte Vecchio, the medieval stone bridge that was the first bridge built across the River Arno, and has been well known for its goldsmiths and jewelers since the 16th century.


Visit the beautiful Basilica of Santa Croce, burial site for the city’s larger than life citizens, including Michelangelo, Rossini, Machiavelli and Galileo. After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore on your own or do some shopping.


Note: The walking tour covers approximately 2 miles, not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. Your guide will join you in Florence, however you’ll have an escort with you throughout the day. As tour visits a religious site, please dress appropriately - no bare shoulders, shorts, or skirts above the knee are allowed. Accademia Gallery is closed on Mondays. This tour is offered on Norwegian Spirit only.
