Always get skip the line since as sure as you think it will not be crowded it usually is.
The Uffizi Gallery is an amazing place and the guide Ricardo Lizzi from Keys of Florence was extraordinary in explaining through examples the evolution of painting accross centuries. Careful selection of masterpieces and paintings with not only to appreciate the art but it's evolution
Enjoyed this in April 2017. Guide was very knowledgeable.
We had a great time on our guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery. Our tour guide, Leonardo, was such an informative and fun tour guide. He also did a wonderful job of including my two kids, ages 9 and 10, and made it entertaining for them to walk around a museum for 3 hours Our tour group was a nice, small size which made it really easy to walk around the crowded museum.
I cannot recommend this tour enough!! the small group size is fantastic and our superb guide Eleanor was knowledgeable, passionate and has a wonderful informal style that makes the information accessible for everyone to appreciate the amazing works on show.
I will definitely be using Viator again for my next trip!
As crowded as the museum is there's no getting around the crowds, no matter what tour you take or when you enter, I really enjoyed this tour. We had an incredibly knowledgeable guide, whose name I sadly don't recall. Her narrative that offered a sense of how art evolved, from medieval times through the Renaissance, placed pieces in context and made the experience understandable even to those without an education in art history. If you don't have that kind of education, too, a tour makes sense, in that you'll want to see the museum as efficiently as possible, rather than wandering around and, possibly, missing the high points. I recommend this tour.
The museum was extremely crowded but our guides expert guidance and commentary seemed to make the hordes melt away. He offered both a fascinating overview of the museums collection as well as an art history tour that took us smoothly from the Middle Ages, to the Renaissance and then to the Baroque. We felt we learned a lot.
Of course, you must go to the Uffizi Gallery - on this tour! On September 27 we were in a group of 11 adults with an experienced guide- our lucky day- because the Uffizi staff decided to strike inside for two hours before opening the doors while we waited outside. Evidently, that's how some strikes happen in Italy. Many long lines formed down the block while we waited. Our guide helped us find benches to wait out the delay, then got us to the head of the tour line's entry door when he anticipated we would be moving inside. Experience mattered once again! During our wait time, our guide engaged us in his intriguing version of the history of Florence and the Gallery- excellent! Once inside, our guide was good throughout the tour, focusing on the best and most interesting sculptures and paintings in the museum. This tour is the way to get through the Uffizi- this is our third and best visit- early, in a small group. At the departure door, stop at the sidewalk cafe to rest your feet and enjoy a bite and a beverage under the umbrellas. A very nice way to spend the morning at the Uffizi!
Fantastic tour with very passionate and knowledgeable guide who ensured we saw the best the Gallery has to offer.
Great guide - Viola - with a huge amount of knowledge, which made every work of art we looked at interesting. Great to be able to skip the queues, although once you're in you're still amongst the crowds
