What to expect

Art is intimidating, and few art museums are more impressive than Italy’s greatest vault of masterpieces: Florence’s Uffizi. Our Uffizi tour is tailor-made to allow you to discover the jaw-dropping, history-changing world of Renaissance art, whether you are a seasoned art-lover or a rank amateur.

After skipping the entrance lines, your expert guide will introduce you to early Renaissance masterworks from Cimabue to Giotto. Through their paintings you’ll learn to distinguish the styles and techniques that created a revolution in the visual arts.

Next it’s on to classics of the High Renaissance, like Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’ and ‘Birth of Venus’. You’ll see the progression of artistic techniques, and revel in the explosion of color and perspective. But it’s not all art theory, you’ll learn about the incredible personalities and bitter rivalries of some of the biggest stars of the day like Raphael, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci. Finally, see the artistic legacy of the Renaissance in works from later masters like Titian and Caravaggio.

Your next stop is Palazzo Vechio. For centuries this was the heart of art and government in Florence; so important that both Michelangelo and DaVinci were hired to paint murals on its walls. Your tour includes the incredibly impressive Council of 500 and an intro to the tumultuous history of Florence. You'll hear how and why the Medici family abandoned this majestic fortress, building the Vasari Corridor all the way through the Uffizi Gallery to their new home at Palazzo Pitti.
