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.

    Amazing tour! Make sure you book with Julia! She’s deeply knowledgeable and passionate about renaissance and you can tell she has the tour nailed down to the minute on how she delivers the right messages in an easy to digest way. My wife and I left the Uffizi impressed with the quality of the tour and how much we learned!

    Our tour guide is was excellent-he was a 12 year art historian and really gave us in depth information into the beautiful Botacelli and Raphael paintings. The only criticism which had nothing to do with the tour at all-it was so very busy at the museum with so many people; if I had known how busy it was in September I would have chosen a quieter month to visit.

    We visited the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi with Alessio and there could not have been a better guide to try our hand at the fascinating world of some of the greatest works of art we have in the world. Alessio was a very well prepared guide, nice, able to involve us with the stories behind every painting and sculpture. Thanks again.
