Masterpieces of the Uffizi Gallery Tour

Ours is the only guided visit that covers both levels of the iconic Uffizi Gallery, giving you the best view of art’s greatest masterpieces. As featured in a BBC World documentary with Michael Palin, it offers easy access to the world-famous art museum.

Our Uffizi tour will introduce you to the famous artists of Italian history. Or, at least, their works. Leonardo. Michelangelo. Titian. Raphael. Caravaggio. Their names carry so much of Italian art history. But it’s not until you stand before their art that you appreciate their genius. After all, it’s like they say: seeing is believing.

In-depth and up-close

Our Uffizi tour covers the Uffizi Gallery’s major rooms and halls. Not only that, but we’re the only company in Italy recommended by just about every major travel guide. This means a streamlined Uffizi tour that helps you focus on the most important artworks. We know how overwhelming museums can sometimes be, and that’s why we carefully curate our Uffizi tour.

Making Uffizi art and history come alive

Find out how Michelangelo out-smarted a famous skinflint. Learn about the mysterious and beautiful model in Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. See the transformation of Leonardo da Vinci’s creative talent.

    Barbara Trexler

    Our guide was very knowledgeable, not only about the works at the Uffizi, but about how the people in Florence lived. It was fascinating! Really the best way to see the museum.A focused tour allowed the Uffizi to become alive and relevant, as an understanding of the art weaves in the culture and history of the time. It was a great, exciting tour

    The guide was very informative and knowledgeable and managed to create an excellent context for each artist and his works. We would have been lost in the Uffizi without the tour. We thought it was excellent

    I had a really interesting and fun tour of the Uffizi gallery in Florence with a company called Artviva. We were escorted to the gallery by a young guide who is a native speaker of English and were able to gain entry without the usual interminable wait in the queue.
    Having visited the gallery before, I know it is a vaste repository of wonderful paintings and sculptures. But you can wear out an awful lot of shoe leather trying to find the really good stuff and even then you might not realise what you are looking at. Our guide on the other hand knew just where to take us and was full of entertaining stories about the artists and their work. There were some children in our group who were kept interested with questions to answer with a treasure hunt style quiz. They seemed to really enjoy the tour as much as the adults. After our tour we were free to keep exploring the gallery for as long as we wished
