What to expect

Visit two of the most famous museums in the world, the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the long lines at the entrance. Join a walking tour of Florence and discover its main attractions with explanations from a professional guide.

Visit first the Accademia Gallery where you will learn why Michelangelo's David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time. How did the genius of Michelangelo meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a being and fixing it forever in time in the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks? You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist.

After the guided tour you will have around 1 hour of free time to wander around on your own to have lunch (not included). The second part of the tour starts in the early afternoon. Enjoy a comprehensive introductory tour designed for those who want to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history, from the city's Roman origins to a 15th-century palace, from the Ponte Vecchio, passing through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the wonderful architecture of Brunelleschi's Dome which overlooks the golden "Gates of Paradise" of the Baptistery.

After the walking tour, you will visit one of the most famous museums in the world: the Uffizi Gallery. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and many others. You will recognize original world-famous paintings you have seen in books, magazines and on television. Discover the secrets of the craft, techniques and tools of the greatest artists in the history of art and admire the most famous works of the period to understand why Florence is considered the cradle of the Renaissance. After the tour, you will have the chance to stay longer in the museum and explore it on your own.
