All of the following short tours can be added to any of the Half day tours, or combined together though this will depend on previous bookings and the availability of the tour guide. We recommend that you reserve these 'add on tours' when booking your other tours.***

'The Accademia Museum'
Famous artwork such as Michelangelo's 'David' created during the period 1501-1504 are proudly displayed here. There are many more Michelangelo sculptures and paintings and also works by Botticelli, Lorenzo di Credi, Perugino and del Sarto.

'Uffizi Musuem'

'Pitti Palace'
Originally the residence of the Medici family, this museum is now a 'treasure trove' for visitors and you will have the chance to walk through the royal apartments, galleries of modern art, costume, silverware and porcelain. The 'Galleria Palatina' contains one of the worlds best collections of Raphaels and Titians. There are always different exhibitions showcased here that you can also enjoy with a small additional price.

'Boboli Gardens'
After touring through the Pitti palace you may wish to meander through the charming Renaissance gardens that occupy the hill behind the museum. You will notice the occassional Baroque and Rococo touches while enjoying the cypress laneways, the Limonaia & botanical gardens, the hidden statues and bubbling fountains. Inside the gardens you can also enter into the Porcelain Museum with the same ticket. Technically picnics are not allowed in the gardens but pick a secluded spot or an empty bench and you can normally eat without being noticed. There are cafes in the street before you enter into the gardens, and here you can easily purchase sandwiches and wine to enjoy in the sun.

With the 'Bardini Gardens'
These are newly opened gardens and can be entered with the same ticket purchased for the Boboli gardens.
