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 one and a half 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 "The Spring", plus 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 9 people or less and audio headsets for every guest, your tour will be relaxed. Your guide will be easy to interact with and you'll be able to ask questions about the artworks that you are curious about.

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.
