This private walking tour is ideal for our guests that would like to view the most significant and historic artwork in Florence.
During this fascinating tour, we will visit Florence’s two most famous museums:
* The Accademia Gallery which is the “home” of Michelangelo’s famous David and Florence’s most treasured work of art and symbol of the city.
* The Uffizi Gallery, one of the first public art museums in the world, was initiated by the prestigious Medici family. Included in the Uffizi’s extensive collection are masterpieces by such influential artists as Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Raffaello, Titian and Caravaggio.
Between our visits to these two galleries, we will walk through the ancient streets and charming piazzas of Florence. We will enjoy the exterior beauty of Brunelleschi’s Dome and Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise which are located in the religious and historical center of the city. We will also stroll through the glorious Piazza Signoria and view the imposing Palazzo Vecchio on the square.
Throughout this adventure of art and beauty we will focus on the Renaissance period. The Renaissance began in Florence with its illustrious patrons of art and ingenious artists who all contributed to the splendor of this timeless city.
