Accademia Gallery

The Accademia Gallery is one of the best known museum in the world today.
During your vacation in Florence don’t miss out on meeting one of the most famous and eclectic artist in the world: Michelangelo!

Enjoy his most famous work, the statue of David, but also I Prigioni, San Matteo and the Pietà of Palestrina. The young Michelangelo carved the statue of David in 3 years, starting from a huge block of rough marble.  The result was an absolutely beautiful, imposing  sculpture, the real icon of the Renaissance ideal.

It really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to stand in front of the David.
At the end of the tour you will have the possibility to stay inside the museum as long as you like.

Bargello Museum

The splendid fortified Bargello palace was the first public building of the city.
It has a beautiful and austere court yard and a high embattled tower.

It owes its name to Bargello that means “master of the guards” who had their seat here in the 16th century.
You will have the chance to admire masterpieces as the David by Donatello, the Bacchus and the Tondo Pitti by Michelangelo, Mercury by Gianbologna, besides the magnificent glazed terra cotta by Giovanni & Andrea della Robbia.

At the end of the guided tour you can stay inside the museum as long as you wish…don’t miss the important collection of Islamic Art as neither the Room of the Ivories or the Armoury.

Palazzo Vecchio

From the time the cornerstone was laid through today, the Palazzo Vecchio has been the seat of city power and the heart of Florence, and even now it serves as city hall.

Its history gos back to 1299, when works started, after a design by Arnolfo di Cambio.
It enjoyed a fabulous “Golden Age” when the Medici family transferred its residence there from Palazzo Medici.

The building, designed to house the florentine offices and magistracies, had to be adapted to new principles and functions: everything was aimed at celebrating the enlightened Medici rulers, the unification of Tuscany and the action of Duke Cosimo I, who was able to turn “the will of many…to one alone, his own” (G. Vasari-Ragionamenti).

You will explore a series of splendid works of art…the marble group of the Genius of Victory by Michelangelo in the Hall of the 500, the bronze group of Judith and Olopherne by Donatello, the Putto with Dolphin by Verrocchio, the frescoes of Agnolo Bronzino in the Chapel of Eleonora; also, take a close look at the frescoes and at Dante’s mask that inspired Dan Brown in his novel “Inferno”!

Valentina treated us to a fabulous tour of Florence. Right away she adjusted the schedule to take advantage of the cooler morning. She held all our families attention with her knowledge and stories about Florence. Very informative tours of Uffizi and Accademia. By the end of the tour we all able to tell the difference between Medieval to the Rennisance period art. The walking tour was fun and allowed us to realize the history of Florence in the streets we were walking. We 100% reccomend Valentina to anyone looking for a personable and knowledgable tour guide.
