Turul centrului istoric al Florentei, vizita ghidata la Galeria Academiei si la Galeria Uffizi fara a sta la cozi
Acest tur de 1 zi in Florenta prevede vizita urmatoarelor atractii turistice:
Galeria Academiei|Galeria Uffizi|Piazza del Duomo|Casa lui Dante Alighieri|Piazza della Signoria|Ponte Vecchio|Piata Purcelului|Piazza Santa Croce
Daca sunteti la Florenta pentru prima data si vreti sa vizitati atat cele mai importante monumente si piete cat si faimoasele muzee din oras, Galeria Uffizi si Galeria Academia, va propun un tur al Florentei de 1 zi, organizat in asa fel incat sa nu fie obositor, sa va permita sa va relaxati si sa va gustati din plin tot ceea ce veti vedea.
Vom incepe turul orasului Florenta in Piazza della Signoria, un adevarat muzeu in aer liber dominat de maiestuosul Palazzo Vecchio, resedinta oamenilor politici inca de la inceputul secolului al XIV-lea. Din primele clipe ale vizitei noastre ne vom simti complesiti de atata frumusete si perfectiune artistica oriunde ne-am indrepta privirea.
Incantati de magia pietrei, a marmurei si a bronzului transformate de mana artistilor, nu ne ramane decat sa ne indreptam spre Galeria Uffizi, unde ne asteapta, solemna, cea mai importanta colectie de picturi din Italia. Vom descoperi impreuna istoria Galeriei Uffizi, primul muzeu in Europa si comorile artistice ale renumitilor artisti italieni: Giotto, Domenico Veneziano, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rafael, Titian, Caravaggio. La sfarsitul traseului ne vom opri pe terasa Uffizi de unde vom admira de aproape turnul Palatului Vechi.
Lasata in urma Galeria Uffizi, ar fi cazul sa schimbam putin registru. Va propun asadar o scurta plimbare pe Ponte Vecchio, cel mai renumit pod din Italia, cu o istorie de peste 650 de ani. Dupa ce ne-am incantat privirea, putem relua turul Florentei si dupa numai cativa pasi ajungem la unul dintre locurile preferate ale turistilor superstitiosi: Piata Purcelusului.
Reluam turul ghidat al Florentei si ne indreptam catre Piata Republicii, „buricul targului”, cum am spune noi, inca din epoca romana si pana in secolul al XIX-lea. Astazi este locul preferat al florentinilor, cu cafenele literare renumite unde se respira arta si cultura in timp ce se gusta o cafea tipic italiana. De aici ne indreptam catre polul religios al Florentei, in Piata San Giovanni, unde se inalta cu fala Baptisteriul Sfantului Ioan Botezatorul. Aici vom descoperi cum un mare maestru din secolul al XV-lea a reusit sa creeze un adevarat miracol artistic, Poarta Paradisului. Chiar langa Baptisteriu, se inalta Catedrala Santa Maria del Fiore, a patra catedrala ca marime din Europa, inceputa la sfarsitul secolului al XIII-lea. Cu siguranta, numele lui Filippo Brunelleschi ramane in istorie pentru una dintre cele mi importante realizari ale sale, cupola
Oaspetii mei au scris despre Turul de 1 zi in Florenta:
Eliza knows Florence in and out. She is a lovely person, very knowledgable, and we had a fantastic day with her. It was a relaxing, yet informative walk with a very enjoyable gelato stop. Her knowledge of art, history, architecture, and Florentine culture is superb. Thanks Eliza!
Eliza is a natural born (true) storyteller. She was a captivating tour guide and took us on an amazing day through Florence. We hit all the high spots and some that were off the beaten path. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Eliza for a terrific day!
Eliza was a gem We booked the 7 hour walking tour of Florence with the 2 art galleries, with the knowledge that one of us has difficulty walking long distances. Eliza was great in tailoring the tour to our needs and we had many rest stops along our day.Her English is very good and her knowledge of Florence is vast. It was so much better than the big tour groups. She really lit up when we got the art museums as art is her passion.She knew so much about all the art.Our tour went 9 1/2 hrs! Grazie Eliza!
We took a day trip to Florence with our family of 5 (3 young adults). We wanted to get the most out of the day and decided on a guided tour. This is the best thing we could have done. We were very fortunate to find Eliza as a guide. She did an excellent job of showing us around, keeping all family members engaged, and making the most of our one day trip. Her knowledge of art and history is impressive. We did a tour of the Uffizi and Acc. She added so much. She is very bright and fun.
Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) had a wonderful full day tour experience in Florence with Eliza in Dec 2014. She was engaging and knowledgeable and quickly built a great rapport with our children, who didn't grumble despite a few museum visits. Eliza met us at our apartment and planned the tour to bring us back again, making sure we hit all the highlights along the way. She was full of tips for shopping, dining and further exploring this wonderful city.
You couldn't ask for a better guide than Eliza! She is gracious, knowledgeable, and professional! She is very well versed on world issues, and made talking to her like talking to an old friend! Her tours thru the 2 major museums brought history and art alive by looking at the highlights of the museums. Her flexibility and familiarity with the area made the tour go very smoothly. After using 5 guides in Europe, we actually still miss Eliza, and would absolutely use her again for more sites in Florence!
Wow! The whole family, myself, husband, 18 y.o. son & 17 y.o. daughter enjoyed Eliza so much! We had a full-day with her (2 gelato stops & lunch) we learned so much about the Florentine history, art and the current political issues of Italy. My son's favorite Italian City is Florence! It was a very casual experience that all can enjoy even my daughter as it was her first time hearing some of artist's names and seeing their artworks. Best tour guide in Florence! Yes, have had others. Book with Eliza!
Had a great time with Eliza and saw all of the highlights in the great city of Florence. Her intimate knowledge of the city and museums allowed us to bypass almost all tourist congestion even on one of the busier days of the season. Probably would have taken us 2-3 days to see the same amount on our own and we wouldn't know all the great stories behind the buildings and art.
