A tour of the Uffizi followed by a city walk ending at the Accademia for Michelangelo's David


The Uffizi Gallery houses some of the most important examples of Renaissance art anywhere. We will see a selection of the Museum's masterpieces in the context of a major landmark of Renaissance architecture replete with history of the Medici dynasty.
The day will continue with a walk through the Medieval city (with an eye out for some hidden gems) stopping for a light lunch in a 'pizzicheria' frequented mainly by locals. After lunch the tour will take us through to the Cathedral complex and onwards to the Accademia to see Michelangelo's David as well as other masterpieces of his.
