About

City | History & culture | Short break

Florence plays host to a clutch of famous museums with the Uffizi Gallery heading the list. Forty-five rooms are packed with masterpieces from the Renaissance, classical sculptures, prints and drawings so it's little wonder that you need to book in advance to avoid disappointment or long queues. Then, head to Rome where a Classical Rome Tour awaits, taking you to the city's must-see attractions and highlights of the city's 'centro storico' including the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona among others. To complete this short break, we've included luxury hotel accommodation in both cities as well as first class train travel between Florence and Rome to ensure that the VIP treatment continues throughout your stay.

Accademia and Uffizi Gallery

Today you have a unique chance to admire significant works by Michelangelo and paintings by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto and more.
