In Florence, Italy, every charming, winding, cobblestone street breathes with the most romantic and revered art in history

The Italian painters of the high Renaissance made the city of Florence itself a work of art. Commissioning an unbelievable number of famous paintings and sculptures, the powerful Medici family commissioned many of the world’s most famous art pieces during their reign in Florence in the 15th century.

Name any Renaissance artist- Michaelangelo, DaVinci, Botticelli, Raphael, Cellini, Donatello- and you’ll find them (and so many other masterful Renaissance artists) in Florence’s 2 best art galleries:

  1. Uffizi Gallery

    Uffizi’s main focus is on paintings, then sculptures and other pieces of art. The building itself is a masterpiece by Vasari with sweeping, sunny views of the Arno River. While you’re visiting Florence, you could spend days inside the Uffuzi Gallery and still not discover all the artwork inside at depth.

  2. Accademia Galleria

    Accademia’s main focus is on sculptures and it seems to be designed to glorify one art piece in particular- Michaelangelo’s David.
