Expert Led Private Tour of the Uffizi with Skip the Line Tickets

The Uffizi Gallery is, perhaps, the greatest repository of Renaissance and Mannerist artworks in the world. First created by Cosimo de' Medici I as office space for Florentine magistrates, this immense space soon began housing the resplendent art collection of the Medici family and was officially open for public viewing in the late 18th century. During the course of our three-hour walk, we will be led by an art historian who will share their deep knowledge of this renowned collection of art and will discuss not only the objective beauty of the works but their technical, political, social connotations and their context within the whole of Renaissance society. The tour begins in Piazza della Signoria with an overview of the historical and architectural context of the Uffizi palace and a discussion of the early period of the Florentine Renaissance, then enter the museum with a timed appointment and spend two and a half hours immersed in one of the greatest art collections in the world.
