    Stop At: Gallerie Degli Uffizi, Piazzale degli Uffizi 6, 50122, Florence Italy

    Art is intimidating, and few art museums are more impressive than Italy’s greatest vault of masterpieces: Florence’s Uffizi. But it doesn’t have to be this way, our Uffizi tour is tailor-made to allow you to explore and discover the jaw-dropping, history-changing world of Renaissance art: Whether you are a seasoned art-lover or a rank amateur.
    The tour, like the museum, is chronological, so after skipping the (always long) entrance lines your expert, English-speaking guide will introduce you to early Renaissance masterworks from Cimabue, Duccio, and Giotto. Through their paintings you’ll learn to distinguish the styles and techniques that created a revolution in the visual arts.


    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Florence Italy

    Your next stop is Palazzo Vechio. For centuries this was the heart of art and government in Florence; so important that both Michelangelo and DaVinci were hired to paint murals on its walls. Your tour includes the incredibly impressive Council of 500 and an intro to the tumultuous history of Florence. You'll hear how and why the Medici family abandoned this majestic fortress, building the Vasari Corridor all the way through the Uffizi Gallery to their new home at Palazzo Pitti.


    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

    The Piazza della Signoria has been the center of political life in Florence since the 14th century with the prominent Palazzo Vecchio overlooking the square. It was the scene of great triumphs, such as the return of the Medici in 1530 as well as the Bonfire of the Vanities instigated by Savonarola, who was then himself burned at the stake here in 1498 after he was denounced by the Inquisition as a heretic. A marble circle inscription on the piazza shows the location where he was burned.

    Duration: 30 minutes
