TREASURES OF FLORENCE

A detailed discovery of the great Florentine collections and palaces including priority entrance to the Uffizi, Accademia and more

The men of virtue who ruled Florence and Tuscany during the important times of the Renaissance profoundly influenced our culture and civilisation, and bequeathed a legacy of great masterpieces. Fine works of art are also displayed in the numerous churches and commemorate famous Florentines such as Michelangelo, Dante, Galileo and, of course, the rich merchant family of the Medici. The reign of this remarkable family lasted 300 years, graduating as they did from Dukes to Grand Dukes and the papacy, making Florence a leading centre of arts and sciences.

All visits are guided and reached on foot. Priority entrance is included plus free public transport (Days 2–4).
