Take your pick from flexible daily departure times (depending on ticket availability) and meet your guide at either at the entrance to the Uffizi or your central Florence hotel. After purchasing tickets for your group, head inside the spectacular museum, a former palace commissioned by Duke Cosimo I de Medici and designed by the great architect and artist Giorgio Vasari.
Make the most of your visit thanks to your guide’s extensive knowledge of the collection, which features Italian painting and sculpture from the 12th century, Early and High Renaissance, Mannerist, and Baroque periods, plus an impressive collection of Dutch, French, and Flemish works. Get an up-close look at truly iconic paintings like Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and La Primavera, Leonadro da Vinci’s Annunciation, and Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, plus a remarkable array of works by other masters including Rafael, Titian, Bellini, Caravaggio, and more.
Throughout the 3-hour tour, learn about the lives and legends of the artists, such as Leonardo’s invention of the sfumato technique, Michelangelo’s terza maniera creation, and the tragic early death of Raphael. It's a great way to explore beneath the surface of the exquisite collection for a memorable artistic experience in Florence.
