A visit to Florence is incomplete without a tour of the world-famous Uffizi Galleries.
It is exhausting and nearly impossible to see the Uffizi's entire collection in one day. Therefore, we will enjoy the Gallery's highlights and see some other amazing and important works of art.
You will learn the history and importance of the Uffizi as you walk down its beautifully decorated, sunlit corridors. Inside its many rooms, you will find a wealth of original Renaissance masterpieces, from marble sculptures to golden altarpieces, and fantastical oil paintings to almost photorealistic portraits. Whatever you find yourself looking at, everything will remind you that this is one of the world's most amazing art galleries.
You will also have a chance to learn about the artists themselves, the inspiration behind the works they created, and the techniques they used to tell the stories that are told in the paintings.
Don't worry, this will not be a boring art history lesson. You will learn and have fun while exploring one of the world's greatest art collections! If you enjoy art and history, and you also want to have a fun afternoon in Florence, then this tour will not disappoint you.
TICKET RESERVATIONS: Ticket reservations are made in advance and admission fees are paid upon arrival at the entrance to the gallery. During the high season, roughly between May and August, there is often a queue in the reservation line. Even though reservations are made in advance, please expect to wait a brief amount of time in line before entering the museum.
We will meet outside the Uffizi Gallery.
The tour lasts about 3 hours. We will visit the museum and discover the most beautiful artworks of the Renaissance with a private guide. You will get a close-up look at masterpieces from Florentine artists like Lippi, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and da Vinci. I will be available to answer any questions you may have.
