What to expect

Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries, two of Italy's most important museums, and see the Vasari Corridor, the Medici family's secret passageway.

Take advantage of the skip-the-line entrance to the Accademia Gallery and discover the original masterpiece that has become the symbol of Renaissance splendor: David by Michelangelo. The David was sculpted by a very young Michelangelo entirely from a single block of local Carrara marble and it's 5.17 meters tall. The Accademia Gallery houses also many other masterpieces, both paintings and sculptures, which you will discover with your guide.

In the Uffizi Gallery, you'll see the most incredible artworks from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and beyond. A collection of masterpieces unparalleled in the world, by artists like Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Botticelli, and many more. With this tour, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the long lines at the entrance.

After the visit to the Uffizi, reach the Ponte Vecchio, which houses the best-kept secret of Florence: it's a passageway that allowed the royal family to move freely from their residence (Palazzo Pitti) to the government palace (Palazzo Vecchio) on the other side of the river Arno. Uncover the Vasari Corridor history and secrets with an in-depth explanation by your guide as you walk along its path from the outside, like the enemies trying to track the Grand Duke's movements inside the passageway.
