Highlights of Florence and Uffizi Gallery

guided tours Uffizi Gallery

We will visit the main sights of the city and the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world most famous collection of Renaissance art.

This tour is great also for those with limited time and for those doing cruise ship shore excursions.

We start from Piazza del Duomo to visit the Cathedral and Brunelleschi’s Dome, the Baptistery and the Giotto’s Bell Tower. Walking through Via dei Calzaiuoli, we arrive in Piazza della Signoria, political center but also an open air museum: here you can admire Palazzo Vecchio, the government palace, the elegant Loggia della Signoria and the outdoor statues by Cellini, Giambologna, Ammannati and others.

The itinerary includes a walking tour inside the Uffizi Gallery. We’ll look at some of the most important masterpieces of the Uffizi - Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and many others - focusing on painting’s history, meanings and technique of execution.

The duration is about 3 hours. Entrance fees to museums are not included.

Advance booking is necessary to avoid long lines for the Uffizi. Bookings will be made by me in your name with no extra charge.
