On this guided tour we will explore the Accademia Museum and the Uffizi Museum. You will be given skip-the-line tickets allowing us to jump the lines. Once having entered the museums your expert guide will take you through the master pieces of each museum. We will start with Accademia and end with the Uffizi Museum.
Accademia: Total immersion in the art of Michelangelo to know his most renowned work, the “David”, and other important works of art such as ''I Prigioni'' and ''San Matteo'' and the “Palestrina Pietà”.
The young Michelangelo carved David from a huge block of rough marble in three years, creating an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the renaissance model. He depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, whose intense expression of strength and courage, which originated from an absolute faith in God, stands as a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic.
Uffizi: You can't leave Florence without visiting one of the most famous art galleries in the world. Here you can admire numerous works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto,Cimabue, Masaccio and many others.
Among the precious exhibition halls of the Uffizi Gallery, the most renowned one contains the refined works by Botticelli, amongst which the absolute masterpieces are: "Primavera" and "Birth of Venus". The latter painting, the icon of the museum, 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 spiritual quality, typical of the Renaissance Neoplatonic aesthetics.
This guided tour ends at the Uffizi Terrace where you can enjoy an amazing and exclusive view of the city’s most important monuments.
We look forward to providing you with a guided tour of Florence's two most prominent museums, not to be missed out on.
