What to Expect
The first part of the tour starts with a guided visit to the Accademia Gallery. You will learn why David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time.

You will enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who wants to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history, from the city’s Roman origins to a 15th century palace, and the Ponte Vecchio through to the famous Uffizi courtyard, the architectural wonder of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery's golden ‘Gates of Paradise’. After the walking tour, visit one of the most famous museums in the world: the Uffizi Gallery. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, and many more. You will recognize and see original world-famous paintings that you have seen all your life - in books, magazines, and on TV. You can learn the secrets of the artists’ craft, techniques and tools.
