Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions
As they say, the early bird gets the worm! And we promise it will be worth it. On the morning of your Uffizi Gallery tour, you and your semi-private group will meet bright and early in the lovely Piazza della Signoria. Upon your arrival, your personable LivTours guide will begin to give you a brief overview of what to expect from one of the largest and oldest museums in Italy.
The Early Morning Uffizi Gallery Tour includes skip-the-line access directly into the museum. Your experienced LivTours guide will make the most of your time by using our privileged early entrance to the full advantage and accompanying you directly to the main highlights. With over 45 rooms inside the Uffizi, it can be difficult to understand what is worth seeing and getting around the museum on your own can be quite a feat. Luckily it is a breeze for our expert, local guides. Your guide will head straight to the must-see masterpieces so that you can take advantage of your time in the galleries with only a few other tourists around. Your guide will confidently walk you directly to masterworks including Giotto’s Ognissanti Madonna, Botticelli’s Primavera, Raphael’s Madonna of the Goldfinch, and Fabriano’s Adoration of the Magi. These are works that have been studied and admired for centuries. Works that have created the Renaissance and which you will be seeing up close.
Once the crowds start trickling in and you have taken in the beauty of some of the most famous paintings in the world, you will continue through the gallery visiting some of what LivTours dubs “hidden gems”. Along the way, your story-telling guide will continue to paint a picture of why Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. You will also begin to understand the importance of the Medici family, one of the most powerful families in all of Italy, and how they came to own this outstanding art collection. Imagine one family owning the works of Sandro Botticelli, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, Michelangelo Buonarroti, and countless more Renaissance geniuses. Following your tour, you will have a clear picture of how this is possible.
LivTours believes that art should be seen and appreciated in intimate groups and with the sound of morning serenity. This is why the Early Morning Uffizi Tour was created – to visit the Uffizi Gallery in the absolute best way possible. Seeing the Uffizi Gallery while visiting Florence is an absolute must, but how you see it and who you see it with is something we specialize in.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

Worth it to wake up early
"If you are planning to visit the Uffizi Gallery when in Florence, we highly recommend you take LivItaly's "First Entry" tour. It is definitely worth having to get up early to be the first allowed into the gallery and to be able to admire all of the masterpieces at your own pace. Our guide Rafaela was superb! Extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We were very pleased with this tour"

The perfect way to visit the Uffizi
"We love museums and galleries and have probably seen more than most all around the world. But we are also snobs in that we don't like to have to elbow our way around the crowds. LivItaly's First Entry tour at the Uffizi in Florence is a fantastic tour! The museum is calm and quiet, the guide is fresh and full of information and great insights, we could stand and admire the works for the length of time that we wanted. It was just perfect! Thank you LivItaly!"

"Entering early in the Uffizi made all the difference in the world. There was LITERALY nobody there. Just us and our guide in front of Botticelli, Raphael and Michelangelo paintings. We were mesmerized. Thank you LivItaly for this great solution to avoiding crowds and for allowing us to have this very special experience."
