Lot 2: FLORENCE BY NIGHT: MUSEO BARGELLO AND CASA DAVANZATI [4 GUESTS]
Catalog Note: With its wealth of museums, architectural masterpieces, and distinctive cuisine, Florence has captivated art-lovers for centuries. IfOnly and Sotheby’s invite you to explore the Birthplace of the Renaissance with this trio of unforgettable, curated Italian experiences.
Your experience begins with an exclusive evening visit to two architectural masterpieces: Palazzo Davanzati and the Bargello Museum. Receive a private after-hours tour of the former palaces and spectacular museums, going behind the scenes for rare viewings of artworks and closed-to-the-public collections. First, explore Palazzo Davanzati and its fascinating ties to Italian history. Built in the 14th century, the former noble house represents a transition between the Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance, richly decorated with colorful ceiling frescoes, original quarters including the famous Sala dei Pappagalli (The Parrot Room), and palatial Gothic architecture. Next, venture to the world-famous Bargello, the Uffizi of sculpture collections. Enjoy a specialist-led tour of the national treasure, with private viewing of masterpieces by Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Verrocchio, and Michelangelo while taking in the museum’s stunning stone courtyards.
After the tours, you and your guests will be treated to a traditional Florentine meal at Camillo. Revel in the convivial Italian atmosphere while enjoying a multi-course family style feast of handmade pasta dishes, risottos, grilled steaks, steamed fish, and much more.
Funds from this experience will benefit Friends of Florence. As the primary source of funding for Florentine cultural heritage restoration, the non-profit organization is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the historical integrity of the arts in Florence and the surrounding region.
