This morning we will focus on the art of Michelangelo. In the Accademia, we’ll experience his magnificent and heroic David, as well as the Captive Slaves, which reveal his method of working. Then in San Lorenzo we’ll explore his evocative sculptures of Dawn, Dusk, Day, Night, and the Medici Madonna, as well as innovative Renaissance architecture.
In the afternoon we’ll return to the Uffizi to explore more masterworks including Michelangelo’s only panel painting, the Holy Family. Professor Beaufort will illuminate works by Giotto, Lippi, Rembrandt, Durer, and many other great artists.
As an alternative to the Uffizi, you may choose to shop, explore on your own, or pass time in a café.
