  1. Uffizi

    In Florence, you can visit one of the world’s most renowned art museums, the Galleria degli Uffizi. You may wish to take a guided tour of the museum, leading you through dozens of ornate halls that hold some of the world’s most precious works of art, as an experienced guide can introduce you to outstanding collections dating from the twelfth to the sixteenth century. Travellers should reserve tickets prior to their visit, however, as admission to see works such as Michelangelo's 'Doni Tondo' is unsurprisingly in high demand! European travellers between 18 and 25 can receive a discounted ticket, whilst European holidaymakers under 18, and over 65, are given free admission. After your day, explore the areas surrounding the Uffizi to enjoy some of Florence’s finest street performance.
