    Accademia Gallery Tour

    Behold Michelangelo’s magnum opus David. A thing of beauty and an icon of Renaissance, the statue portrays a young man with vigour, strength and courage and is till date the symbol of power and invincibility of Florentine Republic. Take a look at other works of Michelangelo like I Prigioni , San Matteo and the Palestrina Pietà . The 1-hour and15 minute tour of Accademia Gallery ends at the museum itself.

    Florence Walking Tour

    Afterwards, begin your walking tour of Florence from the City Centre where the stunning gothic structure of Loggia del Bigallo oversees Piazza Duomo . Find yourself amidst the amazing complex of monuments and see the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral with its unbelievably beautiful Brunelleschi Dome, the Baptistery of San Giovanni and the Giotto Bell Tower .

    Continue your walk along the Via Calzaioli , one of the best places to shop in Florence. See the Gothic Orsanmichele Church and the Straw Market or the Mercato della Paglia . Here the bronzed fountain of a boar fondly called Porcellino awaits you. As per the local tradition and legend, rubbing the boar’s nose and tossing a coin into the fountain brings good luck! Moving on with your tour, see the oldest bridge in Florence over Arno River, the Ponte Vecchio known for its jewellery shops.

    Next stop is the Piazza Signoria with the beautifully arched Loggia dei Lanzi , an outdoor museum full of famous artworks by Ammannati, Cellini, Gianbologna and others. Standing out from the lot is the Palazzo Vecchio , a magnificent symbol of Florence. The walking tour of the city ends here, only to begin afresh with your Uffizi Gallery tour.

    Uffizi Gallery Tour

    Continue enjoying your Florentine art-adventure later in the evening with the Uffizi Gallery tour. Find your guide near Door 1 of the museum.

    Uffizi boasts works by some of the leading artists from the Renaissance period like Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Amongst many, the museum is renowned for two works, Primavera and Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli with the latter painting being the icon of the museum. It symbolises beauty as an expression of purity and spiritual quality, a constant characteristic of Renaissance Neoplatonic artwork. After one and half hour tour ends at the museum itself.
