Enjoy a guided tour of the Accademia Gallery and marvel at the masterpieces by Michelangelo and others. After a lunch break you’ll head out on a guided walking tour of Florence and explore the magnificent works of art at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery.

The first part of the tour starts with a guided visit to the Accademia Gallery. You will learn why the 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 wonder around on your own and some free time to have lunch (not included). The second part of the tour starts in the early afternoon from the Hard Rock café near Piazza della Repubblica. You will enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who wants 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, through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the wonder 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 more. You will recognize and see original world-famous paintings that you have seen all your life - in books, magazines, and on TV close up. You can learn the secrets of the artists’ craft, techniques and tools. Looking at the most famous artworks of the period, you can understand why Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance. The tour ends in the Uffizi Gallery where you will have the chance to stay longer in the Gallery and wonder around by your own.
