Full description
Start your day in Montecatini and take the train to Florence (tickets are included and will be sent by email). Upon arrival in Florence, meet our guide and start the guided tour. Learn why the David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time. How did the genius of Michelangelo meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a being and fixing it forever in time in the Pietà? Why do the famous Prisoners seem to try and struggle free from their marble blocks? You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art, and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist. After the guided tour, you will have some free time to wander around on your own and some free time to have lunch (not included). 

In the afternoon, you will enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who want 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; from the Ponte Vecchio through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the architectural wonders of Brunelleschi’s Dome, which overlooks the Baptistery golden ‘Gates of Paradise’. After the walking tour, you will 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. You will recognize original world-famous paintings that you have seen in books, magazines, and on TV close-ups. You will learn about the secrets of the artists' craft, techniques and tools. Looking at the most famous artworks of the period, you will be able to understand why Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance. The tour ends in the Uffizi Gallery, where you will have the chance to stay longer in the gallery and wander around by your own. Your visit to Italy would be incomplete if you did not visit these world-famous galleries. After the tour, make your way back to Montecatini with the train.
