The experience will begin with a guided visit of 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 some free time to wander around on your own and to have lunch (not included). The second part of the tour starts in the early afternoon. Take advantage of an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who want to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history from the city’s Roman origins, passing by Ponte Vecchio and through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the wonders of the architecture of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery's golden Gates of Paradise.
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 TV close-ups. Discover the secrets, techniques and tools of the greatest artists in the history of art and admire the most famous artworks of the period to understand why Florence is considered the cradle of the Renaissance.
