Know More about this tour
One of the worlds 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 Florences 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 Botticellis genius.
Then, continue to see masterpieces such as da Vincis breathtaking Annunciation, Michelangelos Doni Tondo and works by Rafael. Throughout, your guide will recount fascinating insights into the lives of the artists in question, and tell stories about the patrons who contributed to the magnificent museum.
During your tour, pay a visit to the Uffizi's rooftop terrace and soak up its gorgeous views of the Arno River, Ponte vecchio bridge and Piazza degli Uffizi, the museums statue-lined inner courtyard.
Your tour ends inside the museum, leaving you free to stay and explore independently until closing time. Alternatively, exit the museum after your tour ends to explore more of Florence.
