Uffizi Gallery: Friday Night Tour Including Aperitivo or Dinner in Piazza della Signoria

Admire famous works of art inside Florence's Uffizi Gallery

Meet your guide at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery in central Florence to begin your Friday evening tour of one of the world’s most important Florentine art collections. Boasting more than 1,500 pieces of art, including works by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Raffaello, Cimabue and Caravaggio, the Uffizi Gallery is housed in a horseshoe-shaped Renaissance palace and its exhibits are displayed in chronological order across 45 different rooms.

Your Friday evening tour allows you to avoid the large daytime crowds, making your visit to this Florentine jewel even more enjoyable. With your skip-the-line ticket, head directly inside the gallery, and then stroll with your guide, taking in some of the gallery’s most famous artistic masterpieces. Learn about the history behind pieces such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and Botticelli’s Primavera and Birth of Venus.

Then, after approximately 1.5 hours inside the Uffizi Gallery, follow your guide to Piazza della Signoria and take a seat at a local restaurant. Here, sip a glass of prosecco or a soft drink and sample a selection of appetizers as you take in stunning views of the many statues that decorate the square. Alternatively, if you have upgraded to enjoy the dinner option, feast on four delicious courses of traditional Italian cuisine, including bruschetta and roasted pig served with roast potatoes and mixed salad.

After your dining experience, with your appetite sated and your thirst quenched, your tour concludes in Piazza della Signoria.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Loved this -- the absolute best way to see the Uffizi when it's not so crowded! The tour was very good and the guide was informative. We had a very good tour and then enjoyed staying after for the aperitivo we shared with another fun traveler. Great way to meet new friends and hear their stories if you care to be friendly with others in the group. This was a great way to spend our first evening in Florence!
