One of my teachers told us during the course of study: “ The Uffizi is not a large museum but a great museum “. She (Prof. Maria Grazia Zatti) was right!
The responsibility I feel every time during this private tour of the Uffizi Gallery is huge, always, but the opportunity to talk about masterpieces of western art is one of the most beautiful things for those who make my job.
What are we talking about
The Uffizi Gallery in Florence is one of the most important museums in Italy per number of visitors from all over the world. Many visitors of Florence are willing to come halfway around the world to visit "at least" this gem!!
Why a private guided tour here
During this visit, we will consider some of the most important masterpieces of this museum. The Uffizi Gallery is probably the only museum that hosts many works that were realized by the artists (centuries ago) not far at all from where we now see them! The eyes and the hands of those artists found inspiration for their works watching the same things, the same buildings, the same streets, the same sky that you can also look when you are in Florence today. In short, the Uffizi Gallery is a time machine that brings us closer to the thoughts and ideas of the masters of the Renaissance. Are you ready for a jump back in time?
Who and why
Obviously, we can not begin a private tour at the Uffizi Gallery without first talking about "who" needed this new building in Florence, "why" someone wanted it (the Uffizi wasn't built to be a museum!) and "who" built it.
In other words, we will also talk about the... Medici family!
Some of the artists who will keep us company will be Giotto, Simone Martini, Gentile da Fabriano, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi(one of the teacher of Botticelli), Filippino Lippi(one of the students of Botticelli), Piero Della Francesca, Botticelli (video), Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Bronzino, Vasari etc..

Do we need to buy tickets in advance
Yes, you do. I can reserve the tickets for you in advance and you will pay for the tickets once we get there.
Will we skip the line with the advanced tickets?
We will skip the long/slow queue, we will have a shorter/faster queue. It is not possible to skip the queues completely.
Is this museum and... your tour too boring for kids?
I think that every tour can be boring or not it depends on how a tour guide is able to be “on” during the tour. Besides that, you know your kids better than I do :)
Do you seriously want to bring us through a museum for 2,5 hours?
Yes, I do, but don't worry there is a bar inside the Uffizi Gallery if you need a break.
Hmm, can we arrange this tour shorter than 2,5 hours?
Of course, you can. All my tours are tailor-made.
Can we mix this tour with other tours?
Yes, you can.
