With 45 rooms and over 1500 artworks, Florence’s Uffizi Gallery is hard to navigate, especially if you’re pressed for time. Skip the long lines and go straight to the artistic highlights on this Florence art tour, guaranteed to save you up to two hours waiting in line. Your art expert guide tells tales of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and more as you admire their timeless paintings.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and group outside the Uffizi Galleries, then sidestep the long lines to enter the Renaissance building with your priority access ticket. Your guide brings you straight to the museum’s highlights, including Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, da Vinci’s Annunciation, Caravaggio’s Bacchus, and more.

Along the way, learn the stories behind these artworks—from Christian religion and Greek mythology to the fascinating lives of the geniuses who created them and the Medici family that collected them. Once your tour is finished, you’re free to continue exploring the gallery at your own pace, check out the café, or leave and explore more of Florence.
