This two-hour Uffizi Gallery Tour begins at 1:30pm, departing from the ArtViva Walking Tours office. Much more than a quick walk-through, this tour is designed as an extensive visit, with access to both levels of the museum. The Uffizi Gallery is home to an outstanding collection of Renaissance artworks, spread throughout approximately 100 rooms. A visit to a museum of this size can be overwhelming, but guides lead the small group to the museum's most important works and detail the stories behind their creation.
This tour also includes an entertaining sprinkling of Renaissance gossip. The guide will tell tales of feuds and rivalries between artists and reveal stories about the figures behind the faces in some of the museum's most famous artworks, including Botticelli's, "Birth of Venus." Pre-reserved tickets ensure the quickest possible entry into the museum, while the guide helps the artworks and their creators come to life.
