Description:

A visit to Florence can hardly be considered complete without a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery.

Being one of the most important museums in the world with one of the largest collections of art, it is a place where a knowledgeable guide adds a tremendous amount of value. The palace was designed by Giorgio Vasari and built starting in 1560 as offices (hence the name uffizi) for the administration of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany under Cosimo I de' Medici. The works were later continued by Bernardo Buontalenti under Francis I. The importance of the Uffizi stems from various causes: from being one of the first museums open to the public in the world, from its architectural solutions, and for being a hall of fame of the most important artists of all times.

During the visit you will admire some of the most important works of art of the Western civilization including: Giotto (Madonna Ognissanti), Botticelli (the Spring, the Birth of Venus), Michelangelo (Tondo Doni), Leonardo da Vinci (Annunciation, Adoration of Magi), Rapahel (Portrait of Leo X, Madonna of the Goldfinch), Caravaggio (Bacchus, Sacrifice of Isaac, Medusa), Paolo Uccello (Battle of San Romano), Titian (Venus of Urbino, Flora).

This private tour of the Uffizi will be led by an art historian from our team who will focus on the most important treasures of this vast museum, telling you the history behind the work and the artist and putting it in the context that will make you appreciate these masterpieces to the fullest extent. In such a huge collection of more than 60 rooms, a private guide is particularly helpful to enjoy the most significant pieces of art without wasting time and energies wandering around for hours.

This Uffizi Museums tour includes the reservation to skip the long lines at the entrance. This tour has a 3 hours duration that is a sufficient time to see the most beautiful highlights of this vast museum. If you wish to have a more detailed visit you can add one more hour of tour (so the total duration will be 4 hours). In the reservations box that you find in the upper right of this page, open the options menu and select the one hour extension.

Hello Cori, My family and I enjoyed Brenda very much. It was a great tour of the Uffizi palace. Brenda was very patient with my daughters as they were already too exhausted from walking all around the city! She did a great job in customizing the tour to our needs with great explanations. Thank you again for arranging the tour to meet our schedule and thanks to Brenda as well. Khaled
