Florence: Uffizi & Duomo Tours with Skip-the-Line Entry

2. Florence: Uffizi & Duomo Tours with Skip-the-Line Entry

You can't leave Florence without visiting Uffizi Gallery, one of the most famous art galleries in the world. Led by your local Guide you can admire numerous works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Among the precious exhibition halls of the Gallery, the most renowned one contains the refined works by Botticelli, among which the absolute masterpieces: "Primavera" and "Birth of Venus". The latter painting, the icon of the museum, represents the allegory of the birth of the goddess emerging from the sea foam and symbolizes the ideal of beauty as an expression of purity and spiritual quality, typical of the Renaissance Neoplatonic aesthetics.  Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, a treasure chest of inestimable artistic treasures: once inside you will be immediately struck by the elegance of the spaces of the three naves. Thanks to your expert Guide you will enjoy the beauty of the splendid marble choir of Bandinelli, the complex of the precious stained-glass windows worked by Donatello, Ghiberti and Andrea del Castagno and the singular and mysterious clock by Paolo Uccello. You will also be surprised to be able to walk on a marvelous carpet of poly chrome marbles. Then, looking up, the immense precious interior of the Dome entirely frescoed by Vasari will appear, the biggest fresco in the world. The Brunelleschi's famous Dome is the largest ever built in masonry and the incomparable icon of Renaissance architecture. On Piazza del Duomo, next to the Cathedral, you also have the chance to visit the precious Museo della Misericordia and the great opportunity, at the 4th floor of the Museum, to enjoy a fantastic view on the Cathedral Square and its Monuments, taking beautiful pictures. From there it seems even possible to touch every monument!

Easy entrance with purchased tickets. Be sure to have a set of head phones. Upon entrance, we downloaded the audio through a QR code and were able to listen through our headphones as we walked through this beautiful activity!

Beautiful frescoes, nice to have seen. Unfortunately, the tickets vis get your guide do not help. You have to queue at the ticket office to convert the online tickets into paper tickets.

It really was one of the most beautiful medieval towns we have visited. Can only be recommended and the way up the tower is definitely worth it! A fantastic view over the landscape!

Just go to the ticket shop at the Torre grosso, exchange your voucher for a ticket and off you go. Great !

Todo excelente, bonita experiencia con esta compañía
