Private Guided Tour History Of Florence: City Center & Uffizi Museum
Private Guided Tour History Of Florence: City Center & Uffizi Museum
5.5 hours

Your guide will introduce you to the Ponte Vecchio, the only bridge over the Arno to survive World War II. Trace the history of the noble Medici family, the drivers behind this once illustrious and wealthy city. Look up to the imposing Duomo, an architectural beauty, just like Leonardo da Vinci may once have done. Learn about the church and its stunning bronze Baptistery Doors. After a break for lunch, experience more Renaissance art at the most visited museum in Italy, the Uffizi. Originally built as offices, or uffizi in Italian, for the Florentine magistrates, the building eventually changed roles. In the 16th century it adopted the Medici familys massive art collection. The structure has seen a lot of action over the years, including a mafia car bomb and severe flooding. Today, thanks to modernization efforts, Florence has brought the Uffizi into the 21st century, making it a world-class museum. As it overlooks the Arno River, the Uffizi is a photogenic marvel itself. Its the artists whose work is hanging on the walls, however, who are the real stars. The museum features more than 100 rooms highlighting Renaissance artists like Caravaggio and Titian, among other Italian masters. Your guide will tell you the secrets and stories behind several important works, like Raphaels Self Portrait. Youll witness first-hand Botticellis Primavera as well as his iconic Birth of Venus, a painting that has been a part of popular culture for years. This combo tour will ensure that you get the most out of your Florentine excursion.
