Walk through the amazing center of Florence and discover its unique secular heritage and breathtaking beauty with a private tour guide.
Our tour explores the historic and architectural evolution factors from the Roman foundation through medieval centuries and its Renaissance glorious period up to modern time Florence. Stop for a surprise “tasting”, and learn about the culinary and wine aspects of our unique cuisine.
Our guide will take you to some of the most important spots where the greatest minds and artists have stood and been inspired: Piazza della Signoria, the Duomo, the Baptistery, Santa Trinita and Orsanmichele Church, Pontevecchio Bridge, the secret Vasari Corridor and much much more.
The tour continues to the Uffizi Gallery, the place to be admiring world masterpieces and fully understanding the development of Italian art from the Middle Ages (late 1200) to the late Baroque, placing more emphasis on the major artists of Renaissance.This museum is the perfect place to compare the different styles and techniques of a Botticelli, Leonardo and Michelangelo painting . Also, to comprehend the genius of Raffaello and to learn more about Tiziano and the Venetian school.
The visit also includes the entrance to the Accademia Gallery, which is particularly known for housing one the most significant attractions of the city: Michelangelo’s David statue. On showcase we also have his famous unfinished statues: the Prisoners , St. Matthew and his Pieta. The David statue was transferred here, to the designated tribune, from Piazza della Signoria in 1873. The other works comprise mostly religious paintings by minor artists working in and around Florence between the mid-13th and the late 16th centuries. There is also a significant collection of plaster models by the 19th-century sculptors Lorenzo Bartolini and Luigi Pampaloni, besides a section of Russian icons.
