Full description
Visit one of the world’s most remarkable open-air museums, home to masterpieces by artists such as Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael, among others. Go on a guided walk in the Historical Center to discover the mysteries of Florence along the way. Let your guide lead you through millennial streets and squares. From the life of Dante to the extraordinary success of the Medici family, learn what makes Florence unique. Follow the traces of the most exceptional members of the Dynasty, like Cosimo the Elder, Lorenzo the Magnificent, and Cosimo I. Find out the hidden meanings behind the Masterpieces by Giotto, Filippo Lippi, Leonardo, Michelangelo, etc. conserved in the Uffizi Gallery. Commissioned in the 1560s, Uffizi was originally conceived to house the administrative and legal offices of Florence, which soon turned into the world's first museum. Wander around charmingly frescoed corridors and absorb the energy and wisdom from the eternal artworks, like the Spring and Birth of Venus by Botticelli, Annunciation by Leonardo da Vinci, Tondo Doni by Michelangelo, and more. Hear as your guide shares with you stories of the golden age of Florence from the 13th century owing to fortunes made from prosperous industries in guilds. Learn about the success of the wool industry and its contribution to the fashion business and banking industry. End the tour at the terrace of the Uffizi where you can enjoy a drink while gazing at the breathtaking views of Palazzo Vecchio and Duomo.

    A magnificent experience! A lot of new and interesting information, our guide Eduardo was super charming and the two hours have flown by, he has been very kind and dedicated more time than the tour lasted to show us other works in the museum. Very good experience and fantastic organization.
