La Galleria degli Uffizi is on the list of the world’s top 10 museums and art galleries - hence the long line of people at the entrance waiting to get in. Our Guided Tours of the Uffizi Gallery offer a unique insight into this wonderful world. A name synonymous with renaissance art, in a city which to all intents and purposes is the home of renaissance art - a collection that humbles countless galleries worldwide, the Uffizi is truly unique.
The time spent waiting in line here is more than the wait to enter the Vatican museums but, with our tour, you have priority entrance! An art historian will take you on a historic journey through the exquisite artwork on display from one room to another.
The Uffizi gallery, named after its initial intended use as the magistrate's offices, is one of the oldest museums or galleries in the world. It has been open to visitors upon request since the 16th century and fully opened its doors to the public in 1765. Its growth was a result of the increasingly expansive collection of the Medici family who commissioned, patronised and collected art and antiquities and needed somewhere to put them on show. Its architectural beauty on its own is reason enough to visit it, let alone the countless works stored in its lengthy corridors.
