DescriptionFlorence delights the senses with its beautiful architecture, its charming streets and its historical significance in politics and art. And what better way to experience a city as rich as this, than with those who live here! Our expert local guides take you deep into the city to show you a side of it that most tours fail to reveal! The day is a private full day tour of Florence and the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery. We move at your pace and you can stop to admire the beauty of this Renaissance wonder. Drive along the romantic Viale die Colli up to Piazzale Michelangelo, and stop to gaze out across the vast panorama of the city! From here we proceed down to the city center, where we'll walk to visit the Duomo complex (external visit). After a short walk through the heart of this magnificent Cathedral and grounds, we'll head towards the renowned Accademia Gallery. Here, we come face to face with history - Michelangelo's David stands both outside (a copy, due to the rain that falls) and inside, the original in all its white brilliant splendor! After taking time for a leisurely lunch, we invite you to take a car ride with us to see Fiesole, a pleasant town of Etruscan origin overlooking Florence and the Arno Valley. This 9th century town boasts stunning views over the city, and makes for a perfect trip out of the crowds of Florence! Here we'll also visit the old city center, and check out the Franciscan Church of Santa Croce. After gazing at its facades, we'll head through the streets to the famous Piazza Signoria, where we can look down on the iconic Palazzo Vecchio. From here, we'll head straight to the Uffizi Gallery, where we have the chance to once again grace some of art's greatest wonders: Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio. All of these great artists are housed in this one spectacular building, and to miss it is to miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Your guide is knowledgeable and helps you to understand the art, and its place in history, answering any questions that you have. The day is yours and we hope that you've enjoyed the tour around our wonderful city!
