Statue of David

Located in the Accademia Gallery, thousands line up to see the Statue of David each day. Standing 17 feet tall, the Statue previously stood in Piazza della Signoria, in front of City Hall. Michelangelo’s masterpiece was relocated in the late 19th century to protect it forever. Your top-notch guide will describe Michelangelo’s statue and explain the rich backstory of this magical piece of marble that he sculpted before his 26th birthday.

Uffizi Gallery

Naturally, the best Renaissance art gallery in the world is located in Florence, at the heart of where the Renaissance took place. Your guide will take you through the rooms filled with works by Da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo. You will also learn detail about the most famous and influential Renaissance painting at the Uffizi, Sandro Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. In addition to the Renaissance pieces, you will also discover Caravaggio’s Medusa, a painting that changed how future artists graphically portrayed depth and dimension.

The Duomo and Brunelleschi’s Dome

A common misconception is that Duomo is Italian for Dome. But, it is actually Italian for Cathedral. It just so happens that Florence’s Cathedral is topped by the largest brick dome in the world. Learn how Brunelleschi was able to design this amazing structure and how it has become the symbol of Florence. In addition to the dome, you will also learn about the exterior and interior architecture of the Cathedral, Baptistery and Belltower that all call the Piazza del Duomo home.

Main Sights of the City

Your guide will take you on a wonderful passeggiata through the Renaissance city. You will see the great piazzas like Piazza della Signoria and Piazza di Santa Croce, as well as the famous bridge, the Ponte Vecchio, which straddles the Arno River. As there is no way for us to provide it through the screen, enjoying a cup of gelato or a cappuccino is recommended for this tour, in order to have the ultimate experience.

Highlights of Florence

The guide was excellent and easy to understand her English. She gave a great tour. There could have been more pictures/videos. However, I m sure that they are scrambling to put together these tours without being able to take pictures or shoot some footage.
