What to expect

Enjoy a tour of the Uffizi Gallery with skip-the-line access combined with a tour of the magnificent Santa Croce Church, resting place of many Italian greats and for this reason also called the Temple of the Italian Glories.

Visit the burial place of many Italian greats including Michelangelo and admire works of art by many famous artists such as Donatello, Giotto and Della Robbia in the celebrated Medici Chapel.

After completing the visit of this extraordinary church, you will make your way to the Uffizi Gallery to see famous masterpieces by artists such as Giotto, Botticelli, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Tiziano, Caravaggio, just to name a few.

You will be introduced to the intriguing symbolism of Botticelli, learn to recognize the color-shading technique used by Da Vinci and hear how the creative genius of Michelangelo changed art forever. Throughout your tour of the Uffizi, you'll spend more time viewing and discussing the works that gave rise to the Florentine Renaissance, so that you can enjoy a new understanding of this incredibly important period of art history.

The Uffizi museum was originally built by the Medici to house their administrative offices that ruled the city. Hence the name "Uffizi", offices in Italian. During your tour of the museum, your guide will also discuss the important Medici family as you tour the top floors, where the grand dukes' offices were located. The tour ends inside the Uffizi Gallery.
