What makes this tour special?

The Uffizi gallery ranks high on the list of any art-lover visiting Florence, a fact that regularly results in general access lines stretching for hours. Save precious vacation time and get the best from your visit on our two-hour guided tour, including Skip the Line Uffizi tickets so you gain direct access to the masterpieces inside.

Because it would be impossible to see the entire Uffizi collection in one day (not to mention exhausting), we’ve spent years perfecting a route which visits the highlights of the Gallery as well as some less visited works well worth your time.

You’ll see Botticelli’s iconic work ‘The Birth of Venus’ and Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Annunciation’ to name but a few.

Passing through the stunning halls and rooms of the Uffizi, you’ll learn about the gallery itself, started in 1560 by Vasari. Sprinkled among the masterpieces of the collection are countless sculptures standing to attention on long corridors, beautifully decorated ceiling panels and original artworks that remind you that this is no regular art gallery.

As you travel, your guide will tell you about the artists themselves, the inspiration behind the works they created and the techniques they used to beautiful success. Learn about the patrons that supported the Renaissance and how their benefactors felt about them, and about the events and fashions that influenced some of the world’s most important art.

With small groups of only 20 people or less and audio headsets for every guest, your tour will be relaxed and your guide easy to interact with.

If you haven’t had enough by the end of the tour we’ll leave you with an option. Your Uffizi tickets are valid for the rest of the evening so if you’d like, you can stay and explore more. Your guide will be happy to point you in the direction of a favorite artwork or to suggest areas worth visiting. As experts in their field they’re the perfect people to answer any questions you may have.

Planning to spend the whole day in Florence? Then you might consider taking our Full-Day Florence Tour. Not only will you enjoy Skip the Line Access to Uffizi and the Duomo, but also to the Accademia Gallery. And you'll even save money compared to booking the two tours of this combined itinerary.

*Please note: In an effort to provide our customers with the best possible tour experience, the actual artwork seen may vary. Rest assured, we do our best to show you the highlights of the gallery

*Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on tours with 'Skip the Line' access.

CYNTHIA 13 December 2016
We would like to rename our tour guide, Angelo, to Angelo THE GREAT. Best. Tour guide. EVER. From the moment we were greeted by Angelo, we knew we were in good hands. He is very personable and outgoing. He gave the best tour we have had in all of Italy. His passion, knowledge and humor throughout the tour made all the art come alive. At the end of the tour, it was like getting off a roller coaster where you just say ,"WOW, let's do it again!". It was like being a kid and having an exciting story told to you. We can't even describe how much fun this tour was and how exciting of an experience Angelo made the Ufizi Gallery. We rate him 10 out of 5 stars! EXCELLENT!

Terrific guide. She made the Uffizi tour much more interesting than had we done it on our own. In addition to the major themes, she also pointed out a few interesting tidbits.
