YOUR DAY IN FLORENCE TOUR: HIGHLIGHTS OF FLORENCE

If you don’t have much time to visit Florence, but you still want to have an in-depth view of Florence, this full-day private tour of Florence is the best choice. We will start our day with a Florence city tour in the morning to have a first approach and see the main squares and buildings, like Signoria Square, with its imposing Palazzo Vecchio (13th century city hall) and Duomo Square with Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the Baptistery and Giotto’s bellower. On the way to Ponte Vecchio (the oldest bridge of Florence), we will stop at Piazza della Repubblica, former Roman forum and dominated today by a big triumphal arch of the 19th century.  We will walk along the narrow medieval alleyways overwhelmed by high tower houses and we will step back in time with the 15th century Renaissance palazzi. We won’t forget to tickle our palate with a delicious gelato, a strong espresso or a good glass of wine, so we (and above all YOU) can interact with the locals.

PRIVATE TOUR OF UFFIZI GALLERY

Then we will continue our private tour of Florence with the visit of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the biggest museums of Renaissance masterpieces in the world. With the Uffizi guided tour, we will see all the famous works we studied at school and have always known by name: the Adoration of the Magi by Gentile da Fabriano, the Primavera by Botticelli, the Doni Tondo by Michelangelo, the Annunciation by Leonardo, and many more. Thanks to these beautiful paintings, we will travel back in time and learn about the lifestyles of Renaissance Florence: fashion, anecdotes, the artists’ love affairs and the patronage of the Medici. All with an official guide of Florence.

PRIVATE TOUR OF ACCADEMIA GALLERY

After a beautiful day spent discovering Florence, the stunning statue of David by Michelangelo will be the cherry on top! With this private tour of Accademia Gallery we will marvel at Michelangelo’s sculptures. The most famous is undoubtedly David, sculpted by the Maestro when he was just 26 years old. The perfection of the human body, the carved veins and muscles, the threatening eyes, the force and the intensity of his gesture, here we see that David is not just a piece of marble! We will also see Michelangelo’s so-called Prisoners, unfinished, still entrapped in their marble prison, waiting to be set free.
