Stop At: Piazzale degli Uffizi, 50122, Florence Italy

Look for Galileo among the statues of the Loggiato degli Uffizi!

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Museo Galileo - Institute and Museum of the History of Science, Piazza De' Giudici 1, 50122, Florence Italy

You will visit the Galilei Museum, housed in a twelfth-century building, which focuses on Renaissance science and the periods immediately following it, right up to the nineteenth century: the heart of the exhibition is in fact centered on the Medici collections, which the grand dukes once housed in the museum of Specola near Palazzo Pitti.

Your guide will show you the original Galilean, the two telescopes and the objective lens of the telescope, thanks to which the great Pisan could observe and identify the famous satellites of Jupiter.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Basilica di Santa Croce, Piazza Santa Croce 16, Florence Italy

Discover the tormented story of the burial of the great Tuscan scientist, and see the tomb in the Basilica of Santa Croce which lies near that of Michelangelo.

What a strange connection between history's most famous artist and greatest scientist!
