Tour of the Accademia to see the famous statue of David and visit the iconic Uffizi Gallery:

You can combine the Accademia and the Uffizi Gallery in this 3.5-hours tour in Florence. See  Michelangelo’s David and the gallery of Uffizi to start your time in Florence in the best possible way.

Travel back to the Renaissance entering into the Accademia to see the statue of David (one of the most iconic structures in Florence) and explore the masterpieces housed in the Uffizi Gallery skipping the lines with your pre-reserved tickets led by an expert Florentine guide.

Tour’s first half: Accademia Gallery (skipping the line)

People will think you’re mad not seeing the original David in Florence… so, make time for it! Michelangelo initially carved David for the Duomo and completed it in 1504, when he was just a young man of twenty-nine. However, contrary to the original project, the “stone giant” was placed in Piazza Della Signoria (the political heart of the city) and finally moved into the museum in the 19th century. A copy replaced its original in Piazza Della Signoria in 1910 and still guards over the city of Florence.

The story of David was ever-popular in art throughout the 15th century as a symbol of the strength and truth of good over evil. Your local guide will explain to you the anecdotes related to the masterpiece during the tour and the vicissitudes of six more sculptures by Michelangelo exhibited in the museum.

Uffizi Gallery

After a short stroll through the old town, we will reach the Uffizi Gallery. This historical palace by architect Vasari houses artworks from the local churches and from the Medici family’s collection.

The Uffizi collection holds paintings from the 13th to the 17th century. Your guide will focus on a selection of masterpieces by Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and the other key artists. 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.

Both the Accademia and the Uffizi are extremely popular and therefore notoriously difficult to get tickets. This Tour is a great investment to save your time and to appreciate the potentially overwhelming series of artworks with a scholarly local guide as part of a small group of 12 – or less – or as a private experience.
