Your guide will meet you near the Uffizi gallery, at the end of Piazzale degli Uffizi nearest the Arno River, just at the base of a statue of Galileo Galilei (if you are facing the Arno River, it is the statue in the right corner).

This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide outside of the Uffizi Gallery, bypassing the long lines of the main entrance with your priority access ticket.

Inside, discover an impressive collection of over 1,500 works of art. Though the art spans from ancient Greece to the 18th century, the museum’s true gems are from the Renaissance era. Your guide will place focus on the Renaissance rooms, which house masterpieces from da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and more.

Discover the bright hues, composition and varying interpretations of 'Primavera' and the iconic 'Birth of Venus' as you walk through the Botticelli Room. Continue on with your guide to witness works by Rafael, as well as Michelangelo’s 'Doni Tondo' and da Vinci’s famous 'Annunciation.' Hear the history behind the artists and their great works, as well as the stories of the patrons who made the Uffizi the incredible museum it is today.

Then check out the beauty of the world outside with a stop at the rooftop terrace. Take in gorgeous views of the Ponte Vecchio and Arno River.

Your tour will conclude inside the Uffizi so that you can continue exploring at your own pace, if you wish.

Gallerie Degli Uffizi
One of the world’s oldest art museums, the Uffizi was built by architect Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century to house government offices. It was only later that the building was used to showcase art collected by Florence’s ruling Medici family, and not until 1769 that it was turned into a public museum. The repository of more 1,500 works dating from Greek times to the 18th century, the core of the Uffizi is its unmissable collection of Renaissance art. Your tour concentrates on these, as your guide leads you around the highlights of the Renaissance rooms, home to great works by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and others. Enter the spectacular Botticelli Room and wonder at his The Birth of Venus and Primavera as your guide explains their composition and meaning, and the nature of Botticelli’s genius. Then, continue to see masterpieces such as da Vinci’s breathtaking Annunciation, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and works by Rafael.

The Best of Uffizi
Anneliza_H
, May 2022
Annette was an amazing tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about art history and the history of the Uffizi and Medici family. But she was also very strategic about how and when to get the best views of certain rooms and works of art. Amazing how she managed to show us most of the “don’t miss” works within 1.5 hrs. I studied art history so I felt she spoke to me. But my husband who is not very knowledgeable about art history said he felt her explanations gave him a new level of understanding which he appreciated and found the experience extremely engaging.

Excellent guide. She was engaging, knowledgeable, professional and passionate about the tour. She made it so easy to navigate the huge gallery and see all the highlights despite the Easter crowds. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. What a spectacular museum! Absolutely worth the price. Highly recommend!

Angela is the best!

Angela was an amazing guide for my first visit to the Uffuzi Museum!!! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable about the masterpieces we were looking at, she also was so funny which made for a highly enjoyable afternoon. So many guides can sound so monotonous that I become bored and underwhelmed even when I am surrounded by interesting things. Bravo Angela!

Missing Too Much
Megan_S
, Mar 2022
Tour started 30 minutes late, and we really rushed through the top floor of the gallery. I nearly lost the guide through the crowds several times. The tour didn’t include the entire second floor with Caravaggio, Titian, Rembrandt, etc. The guide didn’t even mention the second floor or recommend we check it out after the tour.
