Combine in one day the guided visits of two most renowed museums in the world
Immerse yourself in the art of Michelangelo. Learn about his most renowned work, the“David” and his other impressive works of art such as “I Prigioni’’, “San Matteo’’, and the“Palestrina Pietà”. Young Michelangelocarved David from a huge block of rough marble over three years, creating a sculpture of absolute beauty. An icon of the Renaissance he depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, with intense expression of strength and courage, originating from David’s absolute faith in God, rose as a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic in its prime. The Gallery hosts other masterpieces by this famed artist. A private guided tour through this museum can help the visitor understand Michelangelo’s genius, especially as a sculptor. Inside the Accademia Gallery you will see the Prisoners, four unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo; commissioned to adorn Pope Julius II tomb in Rome, the Pietà Palestrina and the Saint Matthew.
The Uffizi Gallery is a must see in Florence; here you can admire numerous works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Housed within these vast and wondrous exhibition halls, are priceless works of art. For Example, Botticelli’s masterpieces “Primavera” and the renowned“Birth of Venus”, which serves as the icon of the museum, and represents the allegory of the birth of the goddess emerging from the sea foam as well as symbolizes the ideal of beauty as an expression of purity and spiritual quality, typical of the Renaissance Neoplatonic aesthetics.
