This was one of the most memorable experiences. It was great to be able to walk through the Gallery on our own without the structure of a tour guide. This way everything was flexible and we could choose the areas and artists we wanted to see. We will definitely go back, it's a lot to see and not possible to see it all in one day. We love it!!! Incredible Place!!!
The Uffizi Gallery is an absolute must when visiting Florence. Built in 1560 and known as the oldest museum in the world, it was designed by the famous renaissance architect Giorgio Vasari, but originally had a different purpose. The grand duke of Tuscany Cosimo I de Medici decided to re-establish the authority of the Medici family. The great industries of Florence such as wool, silk, and banking had a huge influence on the politics in Florence. After Cosimo I eliminated most of his rivals he decided to collect the rest of them in one single building and give an office to each of them. In fact, Uffizi means offices. Cosimo's idea was to keep his eyes and ears on all of them. After Cosimo's death, his children lost interest in politics. His eldest son, Francesco I, brought his private collection of art works and made the Uffizi his private museum. In this tour Uffizi tour with a profess...

The Accademia Gallery is particularly famous for its sculptures by Michelangelo: the Prisoners, the St.Matthew and, especially, the statue of David. Admire the 5.17-meter marble statue representing the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in Florentine art. The statue soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. In the adjacent rooms, which were part of two former convents, important works of art are collected here from the Academy of Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and from suppressed convents. Recently the Gallery has been further enriched by the important collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments.

The gardens extend over a vast area forming an open-air museum with antique and Renaissance statues, grottoes, and large fountains. Exploring its numerous and varied walks one is able to evoke the spirit of life at court. The Grotta del Buontalenti is an artificial cave filled with false stalactites and stalagmites, with statues of sheep, shepherds, and Romans goddesses. The cave is located close to the entrance of the Boboli Garden and at the end of the Vasari Corridor.
Good, you need to still queue up with people buying tickets to exchange them (may as well just queue for a ticket?). All in all, good experience, lovely to walk around but just gardens, not colourful
