Begin your morning with a trip to the Accademia Gallery. Over here you will be able to cherish the works of Botticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo and many others. The gallery is home to the 17ft sculpture of ‘David’ by Michelangelo which is regarded as the most intricate and charming sculpture to have ever been sculpted. The gallery also houses a Museum of Musical Instruments which showcases the Grand Ducal Collection of over 50 musical instruments. Combined with modern multimedia, the museum allows you to immerse yourself into the music like the Medicis did centuries ago.
Once your tour of the museum comes to an end, it’s time to visit the Florence Baptistery. The world-famous site is an architectural marvel dedicated to Saint John. Be sure to carefully study the East Gate dubbed by Michelangelo as the ‘Gates of Paradise’. Over here you can also see the baptized version of Dante Alighieri and other prominent figures from the past.
Your final stop will be the Duomo. Take the opportunity to see the Duomo Square, where the magnificent Florence Cathedral is, known locally as Il Duomo, for the stunning dome that crowns it. This incredible feat of engineering required a whole new process for its construction, which your guide will describe as you view it from the outside. The entrance to the Duomo is free and you can visit independently if you wish, as the guide will provide you with a full explanation of its internal and external features.
