Uffizi:


  • The Uffizi Gallery in Florence is one of the most important Italian museums, and one of the largest and best known in the world.
  • The building houses a superb collection of priceless works of art, deriving, as core, from the collections of the Medici, enriched over the centuries by bequests, donations and exchanges, highlighted by a fundamental group of religious works derived from the suppression of monasteries and convents between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Vatican Museums:


  • The Vatican Museums, in Viale Vaticano in Rome, inside the State of Vatican City. They are one of the largest art collections in the world, since it exposes the enormous collection of art works accumulated over the centuries by the Popes.
  • The museum was founded by Pope Julius II in the sixteenth century. The Sistine Chapel and the papal apartments frescoed by Michelangelo and Raphael works that are part of the museum visitors can admire in their path.
