What to Expect
The Uffizi Gallery in Florence is one of Italy’s standout attractions. During this exclusive, skip-the-line guided tour, bypass the crowds waiting outside and enter the museum directly. The building, originally designed as a set of offices by celebrated architect Giorgio Vasari, was once only open to the Grand Ducal family. During this in-depth tour, you’ll cover both floors of the world-famous museum, taking in works from Michelangelo, Raphael, and the only completed panel painting by Leonardo da Vinci. Artworks are spread throughout 100 rooms, so savor the collections with the time saved with your skip-the-line admission tickets. Although museums of this size can quickly become overwhelming, your guide steers your small group toward the highlights. And as you move throughout the collections, your knowledgeable guide keeps you informed and entertained with backstories of many of the artists and some of the world’s most legendary sculptures and paintings on display.

I enjoyed the Uffizi Gallery tour with Catherine - nonstop but not tiring storytelling of the art and the people who made it. The gallery is chock full of art - and I am glad a took a tour for my first visit to anchor me in the history and give me a taste without overwhelming.
