Access Italian Art on a Florence Tour
You can combine the Duomo and the galleries of Uffizi in this three-hour tour in Florence. You’ve probably seen the David already, so our Florence Duomo and Uffizi tour completes your time in Florence in the best way possible. Explore the masterpieces housed in the Uffizi and travel back to the Renaissance when visiting the Duomo – one of the most iconic structures in Florence.
It’s also essential because we organise pre-reserved tickets so you do not lose time waiting in a long line while you’re on holiday but have more time enjoying the artwork and culture.
It is nothing like you’ve seen before. It’s a display of art works from the Medici family’s collection and now houses thousands of paintings from the 13-17th centuries collected by or gifted to the Medici and their successors. Our local guide gives a very good coverage as part of the Florence Duomo Uffizi walking tour.
The Uffizi collection concentrates largely on painting from the Gothic Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the Baroque period and is displayed in chronological order. Your local guide will do a carefully planned chronological tour of the art and you’ll see works of Giotto, Boticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio.
The Duomo and the Baptistry:
Dominating the skyline of Florence, the imponent Cathedral of Florence is an artistic wonder for its size and for its the amazing marble decorations. You’ll walk through the beauty of priceless treasures of Gothic and Renaissance art.
The dome of the cathedral is very famous for many reasons like its size and mosaics. It’s a very small group or a private tour anyway so the experience is quite intimate.
Your local guide will also include an exclusive visit to the Dome and the terrace of the cathedral as part of the Florence Duomo Uffizi tour.
At the end of the tour, you can climb the dome and the bell tower to admire scenic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscany.
Right in front of the cathedral Santa Maria Del Fiori, you will see the Baptistry famous with its doors. These are the Gates of Paradise but what you’ll see here are the copies of the original. Please note this tour doesn’t include the Museum; you can choose to do the Duomo Complex tour in case you want a deeper coverage of the Duomo.
Both the Duomo and the Uffizi are very famous for many reasons and rightly so they are notorious with the difficulty to get tickets. Florence Duomo Uffizi tour tour is a great investment to save your time and to appreciate the potentially overwhelming series of art works with a scholarly local guide who manages to be fun at the same time.
The tour will end at the Uffizi so you can stay longer if you choose to or your guide will escort you to an aperitivo to recover.
