See the best of Florence’s incredible Uffizi Gallery on a 1.5-hour walking tour, led by an art-expert guide! After avoiding the long entrance lines with a skip-the-line ticket, head into the gallery to learn about the wealth of Renaissance artwork and architecture inside. Discover treasures like Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Annunciation’ and Michelangelo’s ‘Doni Tondo,’ and hear the history of the building that was built for the powerful Medici dynasty.

  • Skip the line

Meet your guide outside the Uffizi Gallery in central Florence, and then work your way past the long entrance lines to head straight inside with your skip-the-line entrance ticket. The impressive museum boasts more than 1,500 pieces of artwork spread throughout some 45 rooms, so let your guide introduce you to its highlights on your 1.5-hour tour.

Housed in a vast horseshoe-shaped building designed by Giorgio Vasari, the Uffizi Gallery’s history is as interesting to hear about as the works inside it. Originally intended as the home of Florence’s judiciary offices, the palace was lavished with fine art by the ruling Medici family. After their dynasty fell in the 18th century, the palace was opened to the public and has remained popular ever since.

While the Uffizi Gallery is home to pieces of art dating back to the times of the Ancient Greeks, its claim to fame is its wealth of Renaissance artwork, and your guide will walk you through the most interesting rooms. Admire early Renaissance treasures by Giotto, and then stroll through halls dedicated to Michelangelo, da Vinci, Caravaggio and Raphael – artists regarded as the masters of their time.

Learn about famous pieces like da Vinci’s Annunciation, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and Titian’s Venus of Urbino, and then explore the upper level of the gallery where some of Caravaggio’s finest works can be seen.

Your tour finishes inside the museum, but you can stay inside as long as you want to re-visit your favorite works, or look at different paintings. If you want to take a break from the artwork, rest in the rooftop café and admire gorgeous views over the city. Food and drinks are at your own expense.
