Piazzale degli Uffizi , Piazzale degli Uffizi, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy

Your guide will meet you near the Uffizi gallery, at the end of Piazzale degli Uffizi nearest the Arno River, just at the base of a statue of Galileo Galilei (if you are facing the Arno River, it is the statue in the right corner).

This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide outside of the Uffizi Gallery, bypassing the long lines of the main entrance with your priority access ticket.

Inside, discover an impressive collection of over 1,500 works of art. Though the art spans from ancient Greece to the 18th century, the museum’s true gems are from the Renaissance era. Your guide will place focus on the Renaissance rooms, which house masterpieces from da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and more.

Discover the bright hues, composition and varying interpretations of 'Primavera' and the iconic 'Birth of Venus' as you walk through the Botticelli Room. Continue on with your guide to witness works by Rafael, as well as Michelangelo’s 'Doni Tondo' and da Vinci’s famous 'Annunciation.' Hear the history behind the artists and their great works, as well as the stories of the patrons who made the Uffizi the incredible museum it is today.

Then check out the beauty of the world outside with a stop at the rooftop terrace. Take in gorgeous views of the Ponte Vecchio and Arno River.

Your tour will conclude inside the Uffizi so that you can continue exploring at your own pace, if you wish.

Stop At:  
Gallerie Degli Uffizi
One of the world’s oldest art museums, the Uffizi was built by architect Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century to house government offices. It was only later that the building was used to showcase art collected by Florence’s ruling Medici family, and not until 1769 that it was turned into a public museum. The repository of more 1,500 works dating from Greek times to the 18th century, the core of the Uffizi is its unmissable collection of Renaissance art. Your tour concentrates on these, as your guide leads you around the highlights of the Renaissance rooms, home to great works by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and others. Enter the spectacular Botticelli Room and wonder at his The Birth of Venus and Primavera as your guide explains their composition and meaning, and the nature of Botticelli’s genius. Then, continue to see masterpieces such as da Vinci’s breathtaking Annunciation, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and works by Rafael.

Uffizi with a guide is the way to go!

It was bit confusing to understand the meeting point as I was new to this! The guide was absolutely phenomenal and it is definitely the way to go. He was knowledgeable and shared information that only someone who lived his job could do! I would definitely do this tour again!

Our tour guide was terrific! Claudia was very passionate about her love of art history and told such interesting stories and perspectives about the pieces we stopped to see. I came imagine not doing one of these tours unless you are an art history buff. I learn so much from these tours!

Our tour guide was so exceptional. She shared and taught so much. She really surprised us. I usually expect a canned presentation. She was so lovely and knowledgeable.

Disorganized Guide

Our guide, Jessie was late to meet us. She seems disorganized and do not have the requisite paperwork for skipping the line . It was a good 30 min before we embarked on the guided tour. I supposed skipping the line was a convenience as well as the focus on some of the highlights of this extensive collection. But I had higher expectations of the guide. Would not recommend this particular guide.

Angela just exudes warmth and detailed passion for her subject. I loved her animated way of communicating so much depth in a short amount of time. Angela managed the group well and showed care and concern to make sure all were comfortable and able to hear well. The headsets were really excellent quality.

Wonderful small group tour

I've been to the Uffizi, but this was by far, the best tour I've had. First, the group was 8 or 9 people, so we could really experience the amazing art in a much more interactive setting. (I dont know how tour groups of 20+ even manage to even stay together) She easily guided us through the highlights, connecting the history and stories in a very engaging way. So enjoyable, highly recommend!

Bravo Anette! Skip the line guided tour is a must.

Annette was an incredible guide- a complete professional. On a scorching hot afternoon with a museum strike making her life difficult, she remained cordial and focused on intricate descriptions of the Uffizi’s treasures of art. Despite huge crowds, she led our group through many galleries and was able to describe artistic detail that would have been lost on the casual observer. I would love to have another tour with her.

The guide was very kind, but the explanations she gave were so descriptive and repetitive and lacked compelling insights and stories.

Giovanna was great! Very educational. You only have to download your tickets. The guide picks up the paper tickets from the box office. Totally worth the price.

Easy meet and greet with our tour guide. Small group entry skip the line was a bonus. Inside history lesson from an art historian. Much more rewarding than wandering by ourselves. Highly recommend.
