Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Florence Uffizi Gallery Tour

See works by masters such as Botticelli on this skip-the-line Uffizi tour

Designed by Giorgio Vasari, the Uffizi Gallery was originally constructed for the city’s judiciary offices, but slowly filled with artwork owned by the rulers of the Medici family. After the Medici’s fall from power in the 18th century, the lavish structure was transformed into a museum, today comprising 1,500 pieces of art in 45 rooms.

Your tour will begin in front of the Uffizi Gallery in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide. Head straight inside, bypassing the crowds and long lines with your priority access ticket. Your guide will take you to each of the museum’s highlights, stopping to admire Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, da Vinci’s Annunciation and more. Afterward, head to upper level to see masterpieces from Caravaggio.

With your choice of a morning, afternoon or evening departure, your tour will conclude after 1.5 hours. Continuing exploring the museum at your own pace if you wish, or check out the rooftop café to kick back with a refreshment (own expense).

We're more into architecture than art, so we were not sure whether to skip the gallery tour. It was amazing and well worth it. Great job!

This tour was excellent. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable at the Uffizi and we were able to get so much more from the tour with her guidance as opposed to doing the museum on our own.

The Uffizi Gallery is a must if you're traveling to Italy! I'm grateful we decided on this tour - our guide was an art historian and she passionately explained what we were seeing beyond the masterpiece itself. Rival artists, the symbolism, etc. Highly recommend!

We had a small group of 5 people total with Monika who gave a splendid tour at the Uffizi Gallery. She explained several important works of art including the history behind the building of the museum itself. We learned plenty and highly recommend this one as it helps having someone knowledgeable like Monika explaining everything.

I really liked this tour! The art in this museum is amazing! The Uffizi is huge and our tour guide did an awesome job of pointing out the key words of art and key points of history. He was very funny and brought the art to life. We took the evening tour and it ends about 20 minutes before closing which we had these 20 minutes to ourselves for free time. I used this time to walk back to see my favorite pieces a second time around and the rooms were completely empty at this time which was incredible. I stood by myself in front of La Primavera and the Birth of Venus and Michelangelo's Doni Tondo. It was surreal to soak it all in. Leonardo's room is absolutely amazing as well. Definitely would recommend this tour.

The Uffizi is a must see in Florence. The guided tour is the way to go to not miss the major works and to help make your way through the crowds. I've done this tour more than once with different friends and always learn something new I missed the time before.
