Description

This tour includes VIP entrance tickets to both the Accademia and the Uffizi.

The day will start with a tour through the center of the city and how it was changed by the Medici Family.

In the Accademia, you will visit Michelangelo's imposing statue of David, a symbol of the city's independence from the Medici and other city states.

The Uffizi Gallery was originally built next to the seat of political power, to act as offices for the city's magistrates.  The top floor was sealed off to all but the most powerful of the day, and here began the art collection of Florence's most powerful family.  Your expert guide will show you masterpieces that range from Medieval maestros like Cimabue, Duccio and Giotto to the true Renaissance classics, such as Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’ and ‘Birth of Venus’. 

Finally, finish your visit with a lovely stroll down the streets, following the Vasari Corridor (sadly not currently open to the public) which was built to safely transport the Medici from the Uffizi to their new home at the Pitti Palace.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
