Full description
Discover the most visited museums in Florence alongside a professional guide. Together you'll admire the exhibit's most important works as you appreciate the art of the Italian Renaissance. Your guide will take you through the priority entrance into both galleries without having to wait in the long lines. Throughout your experience your guide will be on hand to explain the most important works of art which are contained inside the museums. The first stop will be the visit to The Uffizi Gallery with its pictorial collections and masterpieces by artists and protagonists of the Renaissance such as Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others. Later, the guide will take you to the Accademia Gallery to discover the most famous Florentine symbol: Michelangelo's David. The gallery is one of the places with the highest number of sculptures by Michelangelo, and is a place where you can also admire the museum of musical instruments, the collection of golden-background paintings, and the Sala dei Prigioni with sculptures designed for Pope Julius II.

We had different guides for our visit to the Uffizi and Accademia, and both of them were excellent. They were both very knowledgeable, and did a great job conveying the information. Be aware that there is a approximately two hour break between the two tours, so your have plenty of time to explore the parts of the exhibition the guide didn't cover.

Our guide was Giacomo. He’s very knowledgeable and engaging. We learned so much and had a great time as we strolled through history with him. It’s nice to be able to walk along someone with his expertise. You don’t feel part of a big disconnected group. It’s as though you have a private tutor to help you understand all of the cultural elements of works in each location. Thank you Giacomo!

Excellent tour! Not only do you get the valuable information about the exhibits as you're viewing them, but Martina also gave us tips as we traveled through the city between museums. I've done a number of tours and Martina's was unique in the fact that it didn't feel rushed and it didn't feel like she was on a clock to finish and move on. She allowed us to take pictures at our leisure and ask questions as needed. Truly amazing experience that I would definitely recommend to friends visiting the city.
