High Art - The Original Renaissance Tour
According to French author Stendhal, viewing sublime works of art may cause dizziness, rapid heartbeat and hallucinations. So said he after a visit to Florence. And while seeing Michelangelo’s David may make you lose your breath and even shed a tear, we think you’ll feel more than fine in the birthplace of the Renaissance.
On this guided three-hour tour, which is limited to just 12 guests, you’ll walk the streets and piazzas of Florence covering the city’s most beloved sights. Starting at the Piazza Strozzi, continue to the Ponte Vecchio where storefronts glitter with gold. You’ll see Brunelleschi’s Duomo, including the Baptistry and its famed gilded doors by Ghibreti. The tour concludes with a one-hour guided visit to the Accademia and Michelangelo’s David. And forget waiting on line – this tour includes reservations and entrance fees.
