What to expect

Get ready to be whisked back in time to the era of revolutionary art and epic talent of the Renaissance – at not one, but two of the hottest art spots in the world: the Accademia and the Uffizi. Elena, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘This is the crème de la crème of Renaissance artwork. We’ll explore how top-tier artists used their art to tell powerful stories – with a sneak peek into the lives of the mighty Medici family.’

Prepare to be wowed at the first stop of the tour, at the Uffizi Gallery – this museum really packs a punch. Follow your local expert hall after hall, checking out works of legends like Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Caravaggio, and Titian. You’ll have the chance to learn how they shaped the Renaissance scene as well as the meaning behind this epic art collected by the Medicis – you’ll practically be itching to grab a paintbrush yourself.

Next, you'll head over to the Accademia Gallery – it’s like stepping into a treasure trove here. Stroll through its seven halls and admire everything from paintings and frescoes in the Hall of Colossus, to Michelangelo's unfinished statues, and shimmering gold gothic works. But the real star of the show? It has to be Michelangelo’s David. Standing tall and proud, this A-class talent was carved from a single block of marble by the genius himself when he was just 26, and you’ll be snapping up pics like there’s no tomorrow.
