Meet your guide outside of the Uffizi Gallery, bypassing the lengthy lines of the main entrance with your priority access ticket.

Inside, discover an impressive collection of over 1,500 works of art. Though the art spans from Ancient Greece to the 18th century, the museum’s true gems are from the Renaissance era.

Discover the bright hues, composition and varying interpretations of Primavera and the iconic Birth of Venus as you walk through the Botticelli Room. Continue on with your guide to witness works by Rafael, as well as Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and da Vinci’s famous Annunciation. Hear the history behind the artists and their great works, as well as the stories of the patrons who made the Uffizi the incredible museum it is today.

Then check out the beauty of the world outside with a stop at the rooftop terrace. Take in gorgeous views of the Ponte Vecchio and Arno River.

Your tour will conclude inside the Uffizi so that you can continue exploring at your own pace, if you wish.

Angelo was a great guide, and we especially appreciated his ability to bring our focus to the most important pieces in this vast collection. The Uffizi is overwhelming, and our tour allowed us to learn something important about each piece we visited, instead of wandering open-mouthed from room to room, as we may have done otherwise! I also dropped my sweater while we were inside, and the Uffizi staff and Angelo were very kind and helpful, and my favorite sweater and I were reunited.

A great summary of the best art pieces. Our guide, Angelo, made it all the more interesting with his knowledge of Italian art history. He brought the paintings to life literally. My 2 young sons really enjoyed it too!
