Overview

This fantastic combo tour is the perfect way to see the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries, two of Italy - and perhaps the world's - most famous art galleries!

On this tour you'll explore works by famous Italian artists such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo and da Vinci. Your audioguide ensures a tour tailored to your interests, allowing you to linger at some pieces of art and skip others as you please.

For all those customers who wish to visit both museums in total freedom and at their own pace, guided by an audio commentary of expert art historians recorded in their own language.

Accademia Gallery: Total immersion in the art of Michelangelo to know his most renowned work, the “David”, and other important works of art such as ''I Prigioni'' and ''San Matteo'' and the “Palestrina Pietà”. The young Michelangelo carved the David from a huge block of rough marble in three years, creating an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the renaissance model. He depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, whose intense expression of strength and courage, which originated from an absolute faith in God, roses as a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time of its maximum splendor.

Uffizi Gallery: You can't leave Florence without visiting one of the most famous art galleries in the world. Here you can admire numerous works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Among the precious exhibition halls of the Gallery, the most renowned one contains the refined works by Botticelli, amongst which the absolute masterpieces: "Primavera" and "Birth of Venus". The latter painting, the icon of the museum, represents the allegory of the birth of the goddess emerging from the sea foam and symbolizes the ideal of beauty as an expression of purity and spiritual quality, typical of the Renaissance Neoplatonic aesthetics.
