Description

Florence is the jewel of Tuscany. It was once home to the evergreen Medici dynasty. The greatest art patrons of their time , allowing Renaissance to happen in Florence. Artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, together with Dante, and Galileo Galilei turned Florence into its eternal glory. Every church, every gallery, every street and every palace is seeped through maestros’ works of art. This is one of the many reasons why the historic centre of Florence is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

An introduction to the city of Florence is a great pleasure and gives enormous satisfaction. The city itself is magical; the colors, the people, and the atmosphere. Florence is special  in winter as in the summertime. Also, Florencetown strongly recommends a visit to the Accademia Gallery during your stay in Florence.

Introduction to Florence covers the history of the city with its Renaissance, the golden-age of Florence, a time when the city was embellished with majestic palaces and squares, turning into a living museum. The visit also include the entrance to the Accademia Gallery, which  is particularly known for housing one the most significant attractions of the city:  Michelangelo’s David statue. On showcase we also have his famous unfinished statues: the Prisoners , St. Matthew and his Pieta. The David statue was transferred here, to the designated tribune, from Piazza della Signoria in1873. The other works comprise mostly religious paintings by minor artists working in and around Florence between the mid-13th and the late 16th centuries. There is also a significant collection of plaster models by the 19th-century sculptors Lorenzo Bartolini and Luigi Pampaloni, besides a section of Russian icons.  Recently, the Gallery has been further enriched with an important collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory. 

 Visits are available every day except Mondays.
