Full description

The Uffizi Gallery is a must-see when visiting Florence. Built in 1560 and known as the world's oldest museum, it was designed by the famous renaissance architect Giorgio Vasari. The grand duke of Tuscany Cosimo I de Medici decided to re-establish the authority of the Medici family.

After Cosimo I eliminated most of his rivals, he gave an office to the rest to keep an eye on them. In fact, Uffizi means offices. After his death, his children lost interest in politics. His eldest son, Francesco I, brought his private collection of artworks and made the Uffizi his private museum.

On this tour Uffizi tour, save time but also learn inside stories behind some of the most notable masterpieces conserved in Florence.

After your tour, enjoy some refreshments in the cafeteria on the Uffizi Gallery's terrace. Take in the unique views of the city, relax and take pictures.

    Rosa was a great guide who helped us navigate the history of Renaissance art. She was knowledgeable and also entertaining, asking a lot of questions to the group to engage the audience. I would have given 5 stars but I feel that small group tour should have been a maximum of 10 people. We were more like 15 people. The 2 hour tour includes 30 mins time to get ready (hand out radio + walk to the Uffizi). The tour itself was 1.5 hrs.

    Alessio, the guide, was very good. On our way to the Uffizi he illustrated the history of Florence. Inside the Uffizi he was very well prepared, he illustrated everything to us in an impeccable way; his love for the works he illustrated was perceived. He was also kind and nice, which never hurts! The tour was great.

    The time had moved back an hour. But we were informed by email and asked if that was ok. - Our guide, a young lady named Julia, explained everything very well. She picked out some paintings and then explained them. Likewise the connection of the Medici family to the Uffizi. Here's a thank you again. I would definitely not do the tour without a guide.
