Il tour

Florence, or ‘Firenze’, is the birthplace of Renaissance and a true classical Italian city. Located on the Arno River and built around Il Duomo, one of Italy’s most fascinating cathedrals, Florence is home to rich art museums, bustling squares and some of the most amazing architecture to be found anywhere in the world.
Florence’s artistic wealth can be attributed to one family in particular, the Medicis. Rulers of the city for over three centuries, they were directly responsible for the cultivation of Renaissance art in Florence and the vast quantity of outstanding buildings that remain to this day.

This tour is organized for the “art-lovers”. If you want to see in first person the most famous works of art of the world, from painting such as the “Birth of Venus” by Botticelli to sculpture such as Michelangelo’s David, these tour is for you. Two museums completely different from each other but that together represent without a doubt the most beautiful a famous side of Florence. You will witness renaissance art’s evolution and the masterpieces of its major artists.
