Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
My husband and I were in Europe last month for 2 weeks. We chose to stay in Florence for three nights. Because one of those nights was a Monday galleries closed , I decided to book the tour of the Acadamia and Uffizi so that we would not waste time standing in line. Our tour guide was a middle aged man with a heavy Italian accent. He was very knowledgable and we learned alot from this personal guide. To improve the tour, I feel that in each gallery, we should have been given a print out of the floor plan for the gallery and told at the beginning of the tour what we were going to see This way we could leave the tour if we wanted to see something else and time was running out. The morning tour was good because we were able to stay later, get a brochure and see the other art that we were interested in. The Uffizi tour was disappointing because we met at 4:30 no map and were done with the tour at 6, and even though it did not close until 7 we were ushered out by museum staff at 620 or so. Starting the afternoon tour an hour earlier, or giving the passes to us in the morning to get into the gallery would have been much better. We did not get to spend much time in the Uffizi on our own.
