What to expect

The Uffizi Gallery, renowned in all the world, is one of the most important museums today. Housed in the former “uffizi” or “offices” of the Medici Family, this majestic structure holds the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. This tour will introduce you to the museum’s most famous Renaissance works: Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Learn about the greatest artists in the world of culture, the secrets of their craft, the importance of their artwork in the world. You will experience the wealth of this famous city and understand why Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Later, visit the Accademia Gallery with an expert guide. Immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s art and enjoy his most famous work, the statue of David, and other important masterpieces. The young Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David in three years, starting from a huge block of rough marble. The result was an absolutely beautiful, imposing sculpture, the real icon of the Renaissance ideal. He portrayed a young powerful man nude, in his full physical vigor with an intense expression of force and courage. This stemmed from his absolute faith in God and was taken as a symbol of the power and invincibility of the Republic of Florence at the height of its splendor.

The Accademia Gallery was founded officially in 1784 in the halls of the old hospital San Matteo in Florence, and it soon became a place where important artistic institutions and artwork could be brought together under one roof.
