Valentine's Day in Florence Will Feature Newly-Announced Love-Themed Tour of the Uffizi Gallery


Firenze, Italy -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2014 -- The tour operator ADAGIO con BRIO, along with the editors of the Florence Inferno blog, have just announced that they have organized a love-themed tour of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world’s most famous museums. For those who plan on spending Valentine’s Day in Florence, Italy, and would enjoy experiencing a romantic themed-tour, the occasion will combine both art and love in one very memorable event.

The Uffizi Art and Love Tour is scheduled to take place on both Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15 from 2:45 p.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is 65 Euros per person or couple—couples will pay the same price as one person for this very special occasion—and it includes both museum tickets and reservation fees.

During the 3-hour tour of the Uffizi Gallery—one of the world’s most famous museums—people will have the chance to discover and learn about some of the most passionate romances in history and how the most famous painters in the world illustrated them through their artwork. Although the full itinerary will be a surprise, it is expected to include timeless myths as “Cupid and Psyche,” as well as Botticelli’s world-famous “Primavera” and “Venus.”

The Uffizi museum has a huge, extensive collection of works of art; exploring its rooms following a thematic path could be a great occasion to see not only the most famous works of art, but also some less-known masterpieces.

“A professional, knowledgeable guide will lead you along a path that follows the love-themed paintings along the rooms of the museum,” an article on the Florence Inferno website noted, adding that during the tour, people will discover how love was perceived by various painters, in different eras, and in several styles.

“Moreover, you will discover the romantic stories that lie behind the paintings: sometimes they are very sweet, other times, they are quite stormy, but… love is love.”

To help make the event as romantic as possible, people who are taking part in the tour will spend their break on the Uffizi Cafe’s panoramic terrace, where they can take in the amazing and beautiful views of the Florence area.

The tour planners also thought about single people. If one is single and sick and tired of being subjected to depressing love stories on Valentine’s Day, the planners welcome them to embark on their Florence Inferno Tour and follow in Robert Langdon’s footsteps, the protagonist from Dan Brown’s novel “Inferno.” On Valentine’s Day weekend, this particular tour will be dedicated to singles. Who knows—people who join the tour might even find their soul mate. Of course, he or she will probably be a fan of Dan Brown and be strangely attracted to all things symbolic.
