Full description

Take the opportunity to visit both the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries in total freedom and at your own pace. Get guidance throughout your tour by an audio commentary of expert art historians, recorded in your own language. Your half day tour begins at the Uffizi Gallery. The museum is located on the top floor of an impressive 16th-century building, erected by Giorgio Vasari. After having collected the audio guides you can start your visit, lead by the recorded commentary of an art historian expert. Be fascinated by the stunning masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Giotto and many others from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. The meeting point for the Accademia Gallery is in front of the museum, where you will receive your tickets and the voucher to collect the audioguides inside the Gallery. Delve into the amazing art of Michelangelo and marvel at the perfection of the famous “David”, which became a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time of its maximum splendor.

It was a tour which included both Accademia and Uffizi. First was Accademia and the personal gave me ticket but Saundra nothing about Uffizi; I assumed I will go directly after. Only at Uffizi info point I received all need informations about the meeting hour and meeting point for Uffizi

August 5, 2022

Requiring a visit on the same day every two hours is impossible.

* I would have missed information about Accademia from the guide we met at Uffiz. There is no way in this world to design a program for such expensive tickets with just a couple of hours left to visit Uffiz! * In any case, I would not buy this ticket now that I understand through my experience what a ticket is. * I didn't get much out of Audioguide, I wouldn't get it now either.
