Journey to Michelangelo's Rome: Florence Add-On

Thinking about joining one of my groups in Rome this year? Consider starting your journey in Michelangelo's hometown, Florence, on the Florence: Add-On trip.

Michelangelo’s Florence: Add-On [Proposed Itinerary; Subject to Change]
October 4-8, 2015 or February 7-11, 2016

Day 1A: Fly from USA to Florence, Italy

Day 2A: An Introduction and Michelangelo’s Origins
Your plane will be met by a driver who will take you to Hotel Benivieni, our accommodations for our stay. Once every one has arrived and is settled in, we will gather walk through the city center and on to Casa Buonarroti, our first museum.
We also might visit: 
Casa Buonarroti, Santa Croce, The Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria

Day 3A: Michelangelo and the Medici
Michelangelo came from genteel poverty. At a very young age, however, Lorenzo de’ Medici, the most powerful man in Italy, became his patron. Much of Michelangelo’s work was commissioned by the Medici Family. Today we will visit several spectacular examples. Michelangelo succeeded where other artists had failed and produced his David: a powerful testament to his own skill as an artist as well as to Florence’s influence in the 16th century. Walking Florence’s cobbled streets, we can visit: Galleria dell’Accademia, the Medici Chapel and the Laurentian Library, and the Bargello
Dinner together at a local restaurant.

Day 4A: The Uffizi Museum
Today we will visit one of the world’s finest art museums. With a collection this outstanding, the first visit can be intimidating, so we will hit the highlights with plenty of time to explore on your own if you are inspired.

Day 5A: Travel First Class on the Eurostar from Florence to Rome.
The train will be met by a driver who will take you to our accommodations. After everyone is settled in, we will take a walk through the Trastevere neighborhood and have dinner together at a local restaurant.

Dinner together at a local restaurant.
