Guided visit to the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries

The Uffizi Gallery

The Uffizi are one of the richest and most important art galleries in the world; a guide will give you the direction and background information you need to enjoy your visit to the fullest!

The very beginning of the Uffizi Gallery was the collection of Francesco I de' Medici to which he dedicated the second floor of the building for his personal enjoyment. The collection became a “public and inalienable good” thanks to Duchess Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici whose will it was that it would be open to the public forever.

Today, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important museums in the world, with new acquisitions and gifts coming from collectors, private donations, diplomatic exchanges, dynastic and church heritages, patronages, and arts and crafts corporations.

One of the exhibition halls of the Gallery contains some of Botticelli’s most famous paintings, two of which are his absolute masterpieces: the Dance of Spring and the Birth of Venus.

The latter, the icon of the museum, depicts the goddess emerging newly born from the seafoam - her delicate beauty the acme of purity and spiritual grace, reflecting the Neoplatonic ideals.

The Accademia Gallery

Located in the heart of Florence, the Accademia Gallery hosts examples of paintings and sculptures by the great 14th and 15th century masters who made Florence the capital of art. The most famous work exhibited is undoubtedly the marble statue of David made by Michelangelo. Aside from Michelangelo's masterpieces, the Accademia Gallery is also the home of a collection of Gothic and Renaissance paintings that were once in the Medici collections, as well as models from the 18th century as well as early 13th century religious works. The treasured collection of musical instruments from the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory of Music has recently been added to the Accademia Gallery collections.

Once the guided tour is over, you can stay on in the museum and continue your exploration.
