Overview

Our tour will begin at the Uffizi Gallery. First opened in 1591, it is not only one of the world’s oldest museums, it is also one of the largest and the best art collection in Italy.

Our private guide will walk you through the treasures guarded inside the museum. The paintings are arranged in chronological order, i.e. from Renaissance’s early stages with Cimabue and Giotto, to Botticelli, Raphael Michelangelo, Titian and Caravaggio. Therefore, the tour will be like travelling through time, learning not only art but also politics, conspiracies, pains and anecdotes, intertwined with the history of Florence.

With this tour of the Uffizi Gallery, you will understand why the Renaissance and Florence, as beating heart of this movement, changed the world forever.

After the Uffizi, you will continue the tour with our guide, heading to Holy Cross Church. The basilica is the largest Franciscan church in the world and legends say that St. Francis himself founded it. The structure of Holy Cross Church includes 16 chapels, many of them decorated with frescoes by Giotto. The basilica is famous as the burial place of many notable Italians, such as Michelangelo, Galileo and Machiavelli. It will be a once in a lifetime experience to visit the workspaces of the artisans and watch them creating leather goods in front of your eyes!!
