Accademia Uffizi Florence
It’s a very intense and concentrated visit exploiting the full 6 hours to get a sense of the main sights of the historical centre, see the masterpieces in the Uffizi Gallery and get to know the genius of Michelangelo as we take more than just a moment to stand in awe of the David.
Going by yourself means the risk of getting lost in the folly! You have to know where these highlights are, learn how to access them and know which are the important things you must see. There’s just so much, this private guided tour will help you efficiently cover the highlights in a limited time.
This tour includes the Duomo, Giotto’s Bell Tower, and the Baptistry (from the outside), Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Della Signoria and many other medieval towers and Renaissance palaces along the way. We will discuss the development of the city, discover interesting and unique aspects of art and architecture, church and government, daily life in Florence’s glorious past.
On our visit to the Uffizi, we will look at some of the masterpieces beginning with Giotto. We will observe innovative works of the great artists of the 15th century: Filippo Lippi, Botticelli. Finally, the tour culminates in the 16th century with the mastery of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
We will visit the Accademia Gallery, discuss Michelangelo’s intriguing and unfinished Slaves, and marvel at his monumental David.
