A city stroll through the heart of the Italian Reinassance

Next, you'll enjoy a leisurely city stroll past the Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and the Florence Duomo and Baptistery. Your guide will pause at these sights in order to give you some of the fascinating history of Florence, which went from regional power to the world-changing center of the Renaissance in the 15th century.

Follow a special itinerary through the world's greatest collection of reinassance art

Now for more art: skipping the line at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery, you'll dive into the greatest collection of Renaissance paintings in the world. It has the tendency to overwhelm even the most seasoned museum-goers, but don't worry: Our guides have developed a very special chronological itinerary that shows you the highlights of the collection while helping you better understand how Western Art evolved from the flat, boring Medieval period, to the vibrant, emotive works of the Renaissance and beyond. You won't be an expert when you finish the tour, but you'll at least be able to impress your friends.

Your Uffizi and Accademia gallery tour ends around midday so you'll have plenty of time left to explore the city. Our guides are happy to give you recommendations, whether you want to see more museums, sit down for a long lunch, or just do some shopping, they will ensure that you have the hints, tips, and recommendations to make the most of the rest of your stay.

We had a great time in our tour with Brenda of the Uffizi highlights and David statue. Her passion for the piece she showed us and the details she provided were contagious and perfect. Great tour seeing all the highlights which we would not have experienced in the same way had we just roamed the galleries ourselves. Brenda was an excellent host! Highly recommend

Allessia was a great guide. She was very personable and enthusiastic about the artwork and sculptures. I am the art lover in our group of 4 and all of us really enjoyed the tour. She kept our interest the whole time with her knowledge and insights about the sculptures and paintings. I would highly recommend her.
