Florence is full of possibility for every artistic agenda. We can focus on the storied heritage of the Renaissance, exploring famed galleries such as the Uffizi (chock full of more than 1500 works) or the Accademia (home to Michelangelo’s renowned David). We’ll see the bronze doors of the Battistero di San Giovanni, an inspiration to Michelangelo, and explore Brunelleschi’s magnificent Duomo, which shines with colorful frescoes by Vasari and Zuccari. Multiple museums await us within the 15th-century Pitti Palace, a sweeping complex that was once home to Florentine rulers.
For a more hands-on experience, we can head to the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, which offers an engaging multimedia exploration of the magical frescoes of Benozzo Gozzoli. Curious about the contemporaries? We’ll show you top galleries like For and Biagiotti or tour Le Murate, a former nunnery and prison that is now home to one of Florence’s most innovative art spaces.
