Great introduction to astounding museums
, Mar 2020
Even in low season and with the coronavirus concerns keeping crowds lower than normal, I highly recommend the skip-the-line-tours. This was a terrific introduction to two of the most important museums in Italy. Our guide, Angelo Alterio, was splendid. He was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, attentive and highly personable. I highly recommend the tour and Angelo.
Stephanie was our guide for the tour. She was very well organized, very knowledgeable and made the tour a most enjoyable experience with a great balance of information about the art with interesting background stories about the artists and the times they were living in. Highly recommend .
Marilena was our guide and we appreciated her informative and fascinating narrative. She helped us see differences in the arts depending on the time frame and truly helped us appreciate the wonderful art we were seeing. On the way to Uffizi, we stopped at the Medici home and admired the villa. She told us that a 12 year old Michelangelo was “discovered” and brought to live here for a few years! I would highly recommend her tour!
Our guide was amazing! We are people who don’t know much about art but She explained every little detail to us. From the stunning statue of David to the intricate paintings in the Uffizi, with this tour we truly experienced everything!
Missed the tour in the morning to see David! But did the afternoon tour~

We missed the morning tour by 5 mins as we got delayed getting across town to the Accademia! Had to get a refund on the tour! The afternoon tour with Angelo for the Uffizi was very entertaining! Even my 16 year old had fun!

We had two tours with this ticket, One was in the morning, including visit to Accademian, Florence city tour and visit to Uffizi.
The tour were led by two lady. Both tour lady are knowledgeable in history, art and Florence City, They are also passionate of their work. Both ladies are not rush to finish the tour instead they took time share their knowledge and answer questions. The morning tour lasted more than 3 hours. The afternoon tour lasted more than 2 and half hours.
We really enjoyed the tour to Accademia and Uffizi, both guides were really good! Very interesting excursion, we really appreciated that during the tour in Uffizi we got not just a basic overview but deep and interesting analysis of selected works. Highly recommended tour!
