    Departure Point:
    Accademia Gallery, central Florence

    Departure Time: Accademia Gallery: 10:15 or 11:30am depending on the chosen option
    Uffizi Gallery: 4:30pm

    Itinerary:
    Accademia Gallery (1 hour and 15 minutes):
    Start outside the Accademia Gallery at your chosen departure time, and then head past the entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket and guide. As you walk, listen to stories about the bounty of artwork contained inside the gallery's walls. Works by Michelangelo are given pride of place, and your guide’s commentary focuses on the artist. Admire his unfinished sculptures – Prigioni and San Matteo – and then gaze in awe at the statue of David that dominates the central gallery.

    Created by Michelangelo when he was just in his twenties, David was sculpted just after he carved La Pietà. Made from local Carrara marble, the statue of the nude biblical hero is incredible with life-like muscles carved to precision. Explore rooms that showcase works by Botticelli and Lippi, and learn about the characteristics of Renaissance art that are prevalent throughout the gallery.

    After your tour finishes, spend four hours at leisure or you can choose to end this part of the tour with lunch at a restaurant in the town center (optional). Remain inside the gallery if you wish.

    Uffizi Gallery (1 hour and 30 minutes):

    Meet your guide at 4:30pm and head inside with your skip-the-line ticket, and start exploring the gallery’s treasure trove of art. Housed in a large horseshoe-shaped building, the Uffizi Gallery’s history is as fascinating to hear about as the works inside it. Built as Florence’s judiciary offices, the palace was decorated with fine art by the ruling Medici family. After their dynasty fell in the 18th century, the palace was opened to the public and has remained popular ever since.

    Like the Accademia Gallery, the Uffizi Gallery’s claim to fame is its wealth of Renaissance artwork, and your guide will talk you through its most interesting rooms. Admire early Renaissance treasures by Giotto, and then stroll through halls dedicated to Michelangelo, da Vinci, Caravaggio and Raphael – artists regarded as masters of their time. Learn about highlights like da Vinci’s Annunciation and Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, and then explore the gallery’s upper level to see Caravaggio’s works.

    Your tour finishes inside the gallery, but you can stay inside for another hour to browse the art independently.
