Know More about this tour

Make your own way to the Uffizi gallery in central Florence and meet your art-expert guide. Then, with your skip-the-line ticket, bypass the long main entrance lines and walk straight inside.

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.

    This tour does not include EVERYTHING to see in the Uffizi, that would take days, but what it did include were highlights and what amounted to a class into the evolution, birth and flowering of the Renaissance. By showing paintings and sculpture in chronological order, it was so much easier to absorb and understand the subtle changes over time. Our guide was deeply versed in the subject matter and explained everything beautifully as we went from gallery to gallery. It was a GREAT tour, which we highly recommend.

    I would not recommend this excursion. The directions are vague and the tour company was not helpful in connecting me with the group. A waste of time and money.

    The directions from Viator about where to meet the tour guide were good. The tour guide was outstanding in his knowledge and presentation . My only complaint was that the gallery had allowed too many visitors in the rooms and there was some pushing.

    Our tour of the Uffizi was superb. The tour guide was well prepared, very knowledgeable, highly educated, and expertly led a large group through a very crowded museum and got us positioned well for each stage of the visit. GREAT TOUR!!!

    Very interesting tour, Valentino was an excellent guide. We had plenty of time to view the paintings and enjoy the terrace.

    My husband and I are on our honeymoon and took this tour. Our guide was amazing! He told us so many interesting facts about the art from this museum. He was willing to answer questions and knew so many details. Definitely worth the money!!
