Florence Art Experience

Florence’s museums, palaces, and churches house some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The most popular and important sites in Florence include the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Uffizi, the Bargello, and the Accademia. The churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce are veritable art galleries, and the library of San Lorenzo is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo’s architectural genius. Wander some of the oldest streets in the city until you reach the Arno River, cross the Ponte Vecchio, and experience the “newest” area of Florence, the Oltrarno. Be sure to set aside time to see the vast and varied art collection housed in the Pitti Palace. When you grow weary of museums and monuments, head outdoors. Spend a day at the Boboli Gardens or climb the hill to the church of San Miniato al Monte to experience an enchanting view of Florence, Italy.

The best way to see this exquisite city is on foot — as you’ll get the chance to walk in the footsteps of some of the most accomplished artists and scientists the world has ever known. Just make sure you take in the very best La Dolce Vita (the sweet life) Florence has to offer. Stand on the bridge over the Arno, and watch sunrises and sunsets; walk to Piazzale Michelangelo to soak up the artistic beauty of Florence; stroll around the Medieval backstreets for a spot of boutique shopping. Whatever you do, Florence is a city that is there to be explored.

Please bear in mind that on Mondays the tour cannot be done as the museums are closed.

The Art Tour :

Full day Walking Tour Uffizi & Accademia Galleries (6 hrs)

You will be met at your hotel by your private official Florentine guide to start your full day walking tour of Florence, touring the famous Santa Croce Church. This is the burial place of some very illustrious Italians such as Galileo, Rossini and Michelangelo to name a few. From there you will be taken to see the Piazza del Duomo, the renowned domed cathedral of Florence and the Piazza della Signoria/Pallazo Vecchio which is still today considered to be the vibrant town hall and political centre of the Florence. Then it is off to the world famous Uffizi Museum where you are able to see many of Leonardo Da Vinci’s pieces on display. You then get a chance to see the Ponte Vecchio. This historic city bridge is lined with shops that were once occupied by butchers but are now jewellers and cafe’s. Some free time will be provide to you for lunch (lunch not included) before heading on towards the world famous Accademia Gallery, home to one of Michelangelo’s most treasured creations, the statue of David. Having survived the outdoor elements of Signoria Square, the magnificent statue was moved in 1873 into the museum where paintings by Botticelli, Daddi and Raphael are also on display. Pre-booked entrance fees to Uffizi & Accademia Galleries included.

You will stay at The Hotel L’Orologio which overlooks Santa Maria Novella, one of the most beautiful and ancient squares of Florence, in the true centre of town and just a few minutes from the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio.

Honeymoon to India – the service far exceeded our expectations

“From the very moment we contacted the InspireMeTravel team to arrange our honeymoon to India (New Delhi) and Sri Lanka (The Cape Weligama) the service far exceeded our expectations. The professionalism of providing us with a proposal detailing the entire trip from the moment we left the UK, flights, hotels, excursions, internal transfers and the flight back home were amazing. As part of the service we were provided with a local mobile phone and a representative should we need to contact anyone, this was a true first class service. We had a complication due to weather conditions that our sea plane was not able to fly and again, without any interruption to our holiday the InspireMeTravel team took care of everything keeping in contact with us the entire time. We have used them for all our holidays since our honeymoon, they will not disappoint. Well done to Karen and Jill in particular.”

North Cyprus Wine Tasting – one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted!

"In my opinion,  one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted! Such a stunning hotel with gorgeous views of the vineyards that this hotel is set in and only 15 mins drive to North Cyprus’ harbour, which offers lovely restaurants surrounding it so you can experience more of the tasty North Cypriot cuisine. 

The rooms in the hotel are First Class with different themes for each and the only hotel In North Cyprus with its own wine. Definitely recommend."

Verona Opera – Such an amazing experience

"If you want to see an opera with the magical atmosphere and feel as if you are actually with the characters then go to the Opera Arena in Verona. Such an amazing experience.  Verona also has the Romeo and Juliet museum where you can actually stand in Juliets Courtyard and in her balcony.  Definitely a must."

I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the famous Mona Lisa’s family home.  The landscape features in the background of the famous Mona Lisa painting – how amazing is that!   First impressions from the group was “Wow”, the ambience, the scenery, the home was breathtakingly beautiful.  We were free to walk around the beautiful gardens and then joined a wine tour, which was very informative.  The group were then shown to our outside dining table on the terrace, where we could marvel at the view whilst sampling the wines which accompanied our lunch. There is a shop where you can buy wines and other gifts, what an opportunity to take a bottle of Mona Lisa wine home with you, so you can share this truly special experience with your friends!  I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel.  It was so very well organised."

What a truly wonderful experience

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the Paris Jazz clubs in February this year.  What a truly wonderful experience.  Our first night was at Ducs des Lombard, for the truly discerning jazz enthusiast, it did not disappoint.  The following evening was at the famous Caveau de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter; grab a seat and listen to the band; watch some amazing dancers and join in.  It had a great atmosphere and was super friendly.  Inspire Me Travel also organised wonderful restaurants (to suit our budget) close to the jazz venues.   I would highly recommend booking with Inspire Me Travel they tick all the boxes!"
