Full description
Start at the Accademia, set up by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Pietro Leopoldo, who converted St. Matthew's Friary and San Niccolò di Cafaggio Convent into an art gallery so that students could study great masterpieces of the past. Explore its fascinating collection of grand masterpieces with an expert guide. See Michelangelo's legendary David, and admire the Medici collections of the Gothic and Renaissance periods.

After your guided tour, you are free to spend some time in the museum on your own. Set off for lunch at one of the fantastic local restaurants in the neighborhood (if option selected), and rejoin your guide in the afternoon to visit the Uffizi Gallery.

The most famous museum in Florence, the Uffizi Gallery, is located on the top floor of an impressive 16th-century building erected by Giorgio Vasari. Skip the long lines to enter the gallery and follow your guide, who will show you some of the world's most renowned works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, and many others. Discover highlights, such as Botticelli's famous masterpieces "Primavera," and the "Birth of Venus.” Once your guided tour has ended, feel free to explore the museum on your own – you're free to roam the corridors until closing time!
