The undisputed highlight of the Accademia is Michelangelo’s David, the world’s most famous statue. Your visit will bring you up-close to this iconic statue, allowing you to admire it from every angle. Your expert guide will tell you the story behind the statue - how Michelangelo accomplished the seemingly impossible feat of creating a masterpiece out of a block of marble that was originally considered too damaged to be used. As you explore the Accademia on your Florence tour, you will also see other famous works by Michelangelo, such as his beautiful and moving Slaves.
Witness the best collection of Renaissance art in the world, with masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Botticelli, Caravaggio, and many more. With your engaging guides - mostly art historians - you will discover the passions and cultural climate of the Renaissance, and the achievements in all fields of knowledge - from art to philosophy.
Your guided tour inside the Uffizi will begin with innovators such as Giotto, and the groundbreaking works of the early Renaissance. Discover the works of Massacio and the allegorical works of Sandro Botticelli, highlights of particular popularity inside the museum. After admiring the works of Fra Angelico and Filippino Lippi, you will next visit the High Renaissance and the masters of the age. Witness paintings such as the Annunciation and the Adoration of the Magi, Madonna of the Goldfinch, the famous portrait of Pope Leo X, and the Venus of Urbino amongst many others.
Your guided tour of the Uffizi ends with the violent world of Caravaggio, the Baroque artist whose works are as powerful and shocking today as they were when they were first displayed in the seventeenth century. Conclude your journey through the art and culture of the Renaissance with a walk along the outside, through the famous Vasari Corridor.
