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).

Evening Tour with Aperitivo or Dinner Upgrade (Tuesdays only, July to September):

After feeling enriched by world-class art at the Uffizi Gallery, upgrade your ticket to top off your trip with an aperitivo or dinner. Following your tour, your guide will lead the way to a restaurant in the bustling square of Piazza della Signoria. Enjoy a traditional Florentine aperitivo, sipping on prosecco and sampling traditional Italian snacks.

For the full treatment, upgrade to experience a delicious 4-course dinner. Soak up the buzzing atmosphere of the illuminated square as you feast on Tuscan specialties like pasta and roasted pork (see the Itinerary for a sample menu), served with mineral water. (Other drinks at own expense).

We had a very nice tour of the museum, our guide was really knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the 1.5 hours of the tour. At the end we were able to turn around and go back through the museum on our own after the tour was finished, which was really nice to be able to do.

This tour was amazing! To be honest, I didn't expect much. We just signed up to get in to see the Last Supper by Leonardo. Our guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. She walked us around Milan, explaining the important sites, their history and back-stories. The tour was well organized and our guide unfortunately, I don't remember her name even kindly helped people with transportation and other questions after the tour.

The guide on this tour was great. He was quite funny and very knowledgable about the exhibits. I think he said he was an art teacher/lecturer and it showed. We skipped the line and went straight into the gallery without delay. There were quite a few people on the tour but the headsets worked quite well and we could hear what was being said. After the tour you could stay on in the gallery as long as you wanted. We would recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed this tour - skip the line was definitely the way to go as the lines were horrendous! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the artwork should not be missed.

This tour was great. Greeters were prompt. Whispers worked well. The guide was phenomenal. Be aware that even with skip the line and a guide, the Uffizi Gallery is crowded and it is sometimes hard to view the paintings and impossible to linger to reflect.
