MASTERPIECES OF THE UFFIZI GALLERY (walking tour)
Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello,….and the other protagonists of the Uffizi.
With my tour you’ll learn about the history of the Italian art from the Ancient Classical to Medieval up to the late Renaissance admiring masterpieces by Cimabue, Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli, Leonardo, Raffaello, Michelangelo and many other artists who led the evolution of the Western art and culture.
We’ll first walk Piazza della Signoria, most important meeting place of the civic life of Florence since the Middle Ages. We’ll then visit the Galleria degli Uffizi Museum. We’ll then walk to the nearby Ponte Vecchio, Old Bridge, with its jewelry shops suspended over the Arno River, to talk about our impressions on Italian Art.
I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I will make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a coffee or an ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and your holiday is meant to be relaxing and fun.
