Florence City Tour with the Uffizi Gallery

This afternoon tour takes you to some of Florence's masterpieces including the Franciscan Church of Santa Croce (where Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Galileo and many other famous people are buried), the Ancient City Center and the world famous Uffizi Gallery.

Your tour begins with the discovery of the historic city center with the visit to the scenic square and Gothic Church of Santa Croce (exterior).

Crossing Ponte alle Grazie, a pleasant guided walk on the left side of the Arno River will allow you to admire the elegant architecture of the Uffizi Gallery and the striking aerial structure of the Vasari Corridor. In the backgroud, you will also see the Dome of the Cathedral and Giotto's Bell Tower, the Towers of Palazzo Vecchio and Bargello.

The ancient Church of Santa Felicita will surprise you with its portico surmounted by the Vasari Corridor. Once inside, you will see the amazing colours of two masterpieces by Pontormo, hosted in the Chapel designed by Brunelleschi.

Then crossing the iconic Ponte Vecchio, after having caressed the nose of the famous “piglet” statue, you will arrive at the monumental Piazza Signoria, with the imposing Palazzo Vecchio (exterior) and the beautiful Loggia dei Lanzi, where the sculptures of great Renaissance artists are collected.

Your tour continues with the guided visit of the famous Uffizi Gallery, in small groups with a maximum of 14 participants. Here, you can admire the superb paintings by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others.
