Tour Description

Uffizi Tour: take an unforgettable journey through the world of Renaissance art.

The Renaissance

You may be wondering – what exactly does “Renaissance” mean?

A quick answer could be “rebirth” – specifically, the rebirth of classical art.

But “art revolution” would be a better definition.

During the 15th and 16th centuries, artists like Brunelleschi, Donatello and Masaccio developed a style that was inspired by classical art, but also deeply original.

They created a brand new artistic language.

But Renaissance also means “realism.” These artists created paintings and sculptures that followed the rules of perspective.

They depicted the figures, buildings and landscapes in a three-dimensional way, and studied human anatomy in order to paint it more realistically.

Renaissance artworks looked more “real” than anything ever produced before.

The heart of this revolution was Florence, and the Uffizi Gallery is where you can see many of the most famous masterpieces of all time, by artists such as Raphael and Botticelli.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel. Together, you’ll walk through the historic city center of Florence to reach the Uffizi.

Your Uffizi Tour starts straight away, as you’ll enter with skip-the-line tickets

Pre-Renaissance Art: Giotto and Cimabue

In the first rooms, you’ll admire some beautiful paintings by masters from the 13th and 14th centuries, such as Giotto and Cimabue. 

Although they can’t be considered Renaissance artists, they were the forerunners. Their brilliant innovations anticipated many of the typical features of the later centuries. 

Leonardo, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael, and the most famous masters

Your Uffizi Tour will continue through the rooms of Masaccio, Masolino and Piero della Francesca – the masters of the early Renaissance. 

Then you’ll be ready to get to the heart of the collection – the rooms of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli. 

Here, you’ll see the “Birth of Venus”, “Spring”, “Annunciation”, “Adoration of the Magi”, “Tondo Doni”, and many other world-famous masterpieces.  

Your guide will provide the background to all these works, so you have a better understanding of the lives and times of the artists. In this way, you can fully appreciate the beauty of the artworks, and the extraordinary achievement of their creators.

A visit to the Uffizi would be worthwhile for Botticelli alone, but there’s so much more to see.

The Uffizi also has paintings by Raphael – Michelangelo’s greatest rival – and by Titian and Caravaggio. Everywhere you look, there’s a famous masterpiece – a work that transformed art history.

The Uffizi has one of the most amazing art collections in the world, so make sure you experience it in the best possible way.

Why waste your time on a regular tour? Forget about big groups, busy meeting points and standard talks. 

Instead, take advantage of our private and fully-customized service. Let our guides reveal the secrets of Italian art, as you explore the world of Botticelli and other great masters.

    Italian ArtVentures' Feedbacks

    Above & Beyond

    We were amazed by the service we received in Rome and even in Benevento. Giovanni went above and beyond to organize tours and transportation for our family of 15 traveling. Massimo was an incredible and knowledgeable tour guide in Rome. He made it fun for the kids and knew when to take a break. Provided water and an amazing lunch spot for us all. We still are talking about some of the stories he told us. Stefano met us at the train in Benevento and was only supposed to drive us through San Bartolomeo, my father's hometown. But he pulled up my father's and grandfather's genealogy and found some interesting facts that were amazing to find out. He printed and laminated it for us to take. It was an emotional day but such a wonderful part of the trip. The minibus was perfect for everyone to fit comfortably and head over to Almafi. Thank you Giovanni and your amazing staff for making this trip one of the most memorable trips ever!!!

    Exceptional!

    Giovanni was so exceptional at his job that you left the trip feeling torn between wanting to tell the World and also keeping him a best kept secret. Everything that he had orchestrated happened, seamlessly for us as if he had choreographed the entire country of Italy to show up, act, behave on queue. I put together a lot of trips, all over the world, for a group of around 20 friends each adventure. As the chief coordinator, you are always a little concerned about third party tours and tour guides: will everyone show up, is this a scam, can they speak English? Giovanni had infinite patience answering my questions and provided so much detail about our adventure, that everyone knew what to expect ahead of time. He took into consideration everyone’s interest, abilities and aptitudes. We saw a side of Italy that felt intimate and entertaining. There are not enough stars in the galaxy to award him.

    Great Experience!

    What a great experience for me and my family to have these private tours planned by Giovanni. We wanted a curated set of events during our time in Rome and Florence and Gio delivered such a wonderful set of activities to suit my husband and I and our two teenagers. Each of the four days was a memorable experience. Alex was so fantastic and I would recommend him highly- we had one our best meals with him just learning from him and having great conversation. Andres in Florence was a blast and incredibly connected to the history of the area, just a wealth of information so much so that we are definitely coming back to Florence to spend more time. Caterina walked us through the Roman ruins and the Colosseum which was awe inspiring. And, one of the best things we did which I highly recommend is a pasta making class with Romina. We learned to make two dishes with her and then ate the food we had prepared. Such a great way to spend our time connecting to Roma. Thank you Gio and to all our guides! We will cherish our memories made together.

    Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend Italian ArtVentures. We decided to use a private tour company, rather than the cruise ship excursions, and we were not disappointed. Giovanni was excellent at planning. We booked a tour in Rome and Pompeii. Giovanni was able to customize a tour that was special to us, so we could visit the LDS temple. Maria was our guide at the Vatican. She was fun, smart, and thoughtful. She translated for us as needed and was able to answer all of our questions. One major bonus of having a tour guide is skipping the line for St. Peter's Basilica. Our driver was awesome, traveling quickly and safely. The van was new, clean, and comfortable. We asked for a restaurant recommendation, and Giovanni made us reservations for Amalfi. It was incredible. The next day, we went to Pompeii with Stefano. He was fantastic. He made sure we saw the highlights and we avoided the crowds because of his expertise in the area. Booking was simple, communication was excellent, the cost was well worth what you get. This company is very professional. Totally awesome experience!

    Perfect Tour

    Truly outstanding experience visiting the Vatican with Maria! She was the perfect guide - knowledgable, smart, funny, passionate about the subject matter. She had a deep knowledge of the art, architecture, history, and the religious significance of the whole area, and gave us thoughtful, interesting commentary throughout our tour. Although she seemed to have a bottomless knowledge of everything, she also knew how to present the information in a way that was considered, insightful, and crucially, not too overwhelming for us. As we walked, she called attention to many things, some big, others details that could easily be missed. She was well prepared, but also brilliant at answering questions and flexible about following our interests. Several times she pointed out a small detail, then drew a connection back to it later in the tour. She knew the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, courtyard and Basilica like the back of her hand, steering us to less crowded routes and perfect viewing vantages. One of us is Catholic, and one of us loves art, and Maria brilliantly held both our interests throughout the tour. Highly Recommend!
