What To Expect

Gallerie Degli Uffizi
In this tailor-made tour, your expert English-speaking guide will bring the endless corridors of the most popular museum of Florence to life with enchanting and educating anecdotes about your favorite Renaissance artists, including: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael and others.

There is a lot to see in Florence and because we know your vacation time is limited and precious, we’ve tailored this private tour experience to only 2 hours inside the Uffizi. See the famous paintings and sculptures, adored by millions of visitors, in one of the oldest, most renowned art museums in the world.

Visiting the museums on your own, it could take several hours and the many masterpieces, without the valuable explanations of a tour guide, could easily overwhelm you. Don’t waste your valuable time and risk missing the masterful works you came to see. Let us walk you past the crowds with our VIP skip the line tickets and straight to the highlights crafted by the gifted hands of Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and others.

On this tour you’ll admire the spectacular “The Birth of Venus” painting. Botticelli’s provocative portrayal of the goddess rising from the sea in a giant shell escorted by angels, as well as “Primavera,” the famed portrayal of gods and muses prancing through a garden of rich vegetation. You’ll gaze at the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Rafael with glimpses into other well-known masters, working your way from the Medieval to the Modern Age of Italian art.
