Florence’s Hidden Art Collection Open For Limited Time

bonacossiIf you’re visiting the Uffizi Gallery in Florence between now and April 29th, you have an exciting opportunity to see one of Florence’s hidden art collections. Visit Tuscany reports that the Contini Bonacossi Collection, usually closed to the public, will be available for guided tours (though only in Italian) to anyone who purchases a ticket to the Uffizi.

The collection includes sculptures and paintings by Andrea del Castagno, Giovanni Bellini, Girolamo Savoldo, El Greco, Bernini and Velasquez e Goya. Reservations must be made ahead of time, however. Keep in mind that even if you don’t speak Italian, you can still see some incredible art – art that not many travelers to Florence ever have the chance to experience.

See more information (in Italian) here.
