What to expect
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.

Worth it..
Nov 2019 • Solo
There is LOADS to see in the Uffuzi and for just a little extra ‘££’ than you would pay just to get in myself, it was great to have a guide to help us navigate the collection. This enabled me to better context and understand what I was looking at. Our guide was Angleo Alterio who was very well informed, and passionate about his subject. Big thumbs up!!

Hits the best highlights of the Uffizi
Oct 2019
Our guide was Angela and she did a great job keeping our group together through all the security and on track in such a crowded museum. We took the afternoon tour and Angela was still able to get us up close with each of the paintings and provided a lot of background and history about each one. Highly recommend taking this tour if you are looking to catch the highlights of the Uffizi without spending a lot of time. It gets you past the line while also providing context about what you are actually experiencing.

Angelo Alterio is the STAR among tourguides in Italy
Sep 2019
We had the privilege of accompanying Angelo Alterio on a tour through the Uffizi in Florence. Being a professional tourguide myself I have to say that he is one of three best guides I have had on my travels to different countries. He has this genius of repeatedly providing his guests with "aha" and "wow" experiences throughout the tour. He has an exceptionally keen sense of selecting the absolute highlights and delivering his message in a captivating way that leaves you open mouthed again and again. On the scale of twelve he gets thirteen points from me for being a professional and gentleman - making way for handicapped guests while informing us. He really is a role model for the rest of us tourguides

Highly informative and fun

Kiarra (not sure of spelling) was fantastic. She had a real passion for art history, and was able to intersperse discussions of the art and the developing artistic techniques with stories about the personalities and lives of the artists and their patrons. Fantastic tour.

Oct 2019 • Couples
Annette was wonderful. She told us wonderful stories about the museum and its exhibits. Annette had a passion to show us the development of painting techniques from Romanesque to Middle Ages through to Renaissance. The fact that more than one painter worked on a piece surprised me as Annette was able to help us distinguish the styles of each of the artists. She was also very knowledgeable about sculpture. We were armed with sufficient knowledge to wander through the museum at our own pace and appreciate the works of art in a new light.

This was our first tour in Florence. It's not too long and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would not try to do the Academia and the Uffizi together! There's way too much to see.
