    Join us for this exclusive full-day tour to Florence's two main museums, Uffizi and Accademia, and a buffet lunch at one of the most exclusive hotels of the city.

    Located on the River Arno, Florence, or Firenze, is a true, classic Italian city and the birthplace of the Renaissance. Built around Il Duomo, one of Italy's most fascinating cathedrals, Florence offers some of the most spectacular art museums, architecture and photo opportunities in the world today. 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, as well as the vast quantity of spectacular buildings that remain standing to this day.

    This tour will depart the pier for the drive to Florence, where guests will walk to the Galleria dell'Accademia. Upon arrival, you will find the sheer colossal size of Michelangelo's statue of David to be truly awe-inspiring. Nestled in a vaulted space that permits a free and unencumbered view from all angles, the grandeur of the statue is further enhanced by its turned head and intense gaze. Built by the Medicis in the late-16th century, the Uffizi is home to the most revered picture gallery in Italy, with representative works by the Italian masters Cimabue, Giotto, Duccio, Simone Martini, Masaccio, Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo. You will also see the exquisite works of Flemish, Spanish, Venetian, French, and German artists.

    After visiting the two museums, you will enjoy a delicious lunch at the Hotel Savoy or Grand hotel Baglioni. Both properties offer unparalleled luxury and style in the heart of Florence. The venue locations are centrally located in close proximity of the museums and Florence's main fashion streets, making them an ideal base from which to visit the key attractions of this beautiful and historic city.

    After your sumptuous repast, some free time will be made in the afternoon to browse the world-class shops of Via Tornabuoni and Via della Vigna Nuova, including Armani, Bulgari, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianni Versace, Gucci, Prada and more.

    At the conclusion of your unforgettable day in Florence, you will re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier and ship.
