The Uffizi was commissioned by Cosimo the Great, head of the powerful Medici family, and its grand architecture was designed by Giorgio Vasari in the late 16th Century. It was to be a judicial office, and later came to house the extensive Medici collection of art. There are over 45 rooms inside the Uffizi, each filled with art from classical sculptures to priceless Renaissance paintings.
Your passionate guide will expertly navigate you through the museum to ensure you see all the major highlights on this 1.5-hour express tour, without the crowds.

Also on display are works by the true titans of the High Renaissance: the Adoration of the Magi by Leonardo Da Vinci, the Tondo Doni by Michelangelo, and the Doni portraits by Raphael. With so many layers of meaning, you’ll learn all about the messages and hidden meanings in the paintings, as your guide teaches you how to decode these incredible works of art. You’ll hear about the fascinating lives of the artists and how they honed their craft in Florence and Rome.
