Did you know that the word “Uffizi” in ancient Italian meant offices? The building that exists today as the Uffizi Gallery was commissioned by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo I de’Medici, in the year 1560. The Duke needed offices for the Florentine magistrates. This is just one example of some of the intriguing facts that your knowledgeable guide will explain to you while touring the Uffizi. Facts that would be unknown to you while visiting on your own.
Today these offices host some of the most important pieces of art made by some of the world’s most respected artists. Let your private tour guide point out the symbolism in the paintings you see on tour, such as Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Learn about the background stories of the commissioning and subsequent making of these spectacular pieces.

"We were mesmerized in front of the masterpieces in the Uffizi Gallery. Having a private tour allowed for a stress/line-free visit with one of the best guides we've ever encountered. Rafaella is an art historian and a practicing artist so to look at these works through her eyes and with the insights she was able to give us, made this an experience which we won't soon forget. Thanks Rafaella and LivItaly for the best possible experience! "
