Enjoy the art in Florence with a professional guide who will let you discover two of the most famous museums in the world: the Uffizi Gallery, home to prestigious masterpieces by great Renaissance artists, and the Accademia Gallery, which houses Michelangelo's superb David. In the early afternoon, you'll also be shown the magnificent artistic treasures held inside one of the most beautiful and largest cathedrals in the world: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.
You can't leave Florence without seeing the works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue and Masaccio on display at the Uffizi Gallery. Admire Botticelli's Birth of Venus, his absolute masterpiece and the icon of the museum, which represents the allegory of the birth of the goddess emerging from the sea foam and symbolizes the ideal of beauty as an expression of purity and spirituality typical of the Renaissance Neoplatonic aesthetics.
After the Uffizi, follow your guide on a journey through the extraordinary collection of the Accademia Gallery. Enjoy total immersion in the art of Michelangelo and see his most renowned work, the original statue of David, an imposing male nude of absolute beauty with an intense expression of strength and courage that became the icon of the Renaissance model as well as the symbol of the power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time of its maximum splendor.
Have a Tuscan lunch at a typical restaurant a few steps from the Duomo (if selected) and get ready to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, a chest of inestimable artistic treasures. Enjoy the beauty of the splendid marble choir by Bandinelli, the complexity of the precious stained-glass windows by Donatello, Ghiberti and Andrea del Castagno and the mysterious clock by Paolo Uccello. Then, looking up, admire the immense precious interior of the Dome entirely frescoed by Vasari.
With the same ticket, it is also possible to access the Misericordia Museum located on Piazza del Duomo next to the Cathedral. Explore this magical place off the beaten track at your own pace and marvel at precious works of sacred art by Santi di Tito, Benedetto da Maiano, Sano di Pietro, Bacchiacca, G. A. Sogliani, G. Battista Naldini and many other important artists.
