What to expect

With over 2 million visitors flocking in each year and a staggering collection of over 2,200 artworks on display, tackling the Uffizi Gallery solo can feel like diving into the deep end. But fear not – with skip-the-line tickets, small groups, and a top-notch guide, this guarantees to squeeze the most out of your visit. Francesca, one of our local expert guides, says, ‘I'm here to provide the backstory behind every piece you encounter in the gallery. You'll walk away with a deeper appreciation of the collection's ties to the Medici family, Renaissance Italy, and beyond."

Fully exploring the Uffizi would take days, but this tour is your golden ticket if you're short on time. You’ll head straight to the museum’s must-see masterpieces, from Leonardo da Vinci to Michelangelo, Caravaggio to Botticelli. Local guide Francesca adds, ‘when you feast your eyes on Botticelli's, 'The Birth of Venus' and 'La Primavera,' filled with goddesses, rich symbolism and dreamy colours – you’ll feel inspired. Snap up pics of these paintings that started to shape the way people saw the world.’

Get ready to soak in the essence of the Uffizi as your local expert breathes life into each artwork. You'll uncover the techniques, styles, historical contexts, and symbolism behind the artists who paved the way for one of the most famous periods in art history – the Renaissance. And if you've got a combo ticket, you'll have access to the Uffizi’s temporary exhibitions too – perfect for exploring at your own pace post tour.
