ESSENTIAL DETAILS OF OUR UFFIZI GALLERY TOUR

FLORENCE’S UFFIZI MUSEUM TOUR | HIGHLIGHTS

The Uffizi Museum, and some might say the Renaissance, might not exist at all if it weren’t for the powerful Medici family. Cosimo the Great ordered the building’s construction in 1506 and the wealthy family of bankers followed a great tradition of collecting and commissioning works of art. The collection follows a chronological path which allows the guide not only to show you the most important works in the Uffizi Gallery, but also to tell the story of the evolution of European art throughout the Renaissance.

The masterpieces of featured artist Sandro Botticelli, Primavera and The Birth of Venus, will stop you in your tracks. Caravaggio is yet another genius whose work is on display. His study of the interaction between light and dark (known in Italian as chiaroscuro) is highlighted in his work entitled Medusa. It is easy to lose yourself in the beauty of the artwork and lose sight of the artist behind it. But with a passionate local guide, you will appreciate them as one in the same.

Drawing over a million visitors a year, the wait to get tickets for the Uffizi Gallery can take hours — especially in the busy months. With so much to see inside this exceptional collection, the last thing you need to worry about is finding tickets and spending your vacation waiting in line. Let us take care of the details, so you can visit the museum stress-free, skipping the line, and truly appreciating the masterpieces within.
