You will enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who wants to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history, from the city’s Roman origins to a 15th century palace, and the Ponte Vecchio through to the famous Uffizi courtyard, the architectural wonder of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery's golden ‘Gates of Paradise’. After the walking tour, visit one of the most famous museums in the world: the Uffizi Gallery. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, and many more.
