The Uffizi Gallery in Florence
Private guided tour in the Uffizi Gallery, museum tickets and all reservation fees:
Please do not bring any large purses, bags, or backpacks with you on the museum tour
Unavailable dates: The Uffizi Gallery is closed on Mondays, the 1st of May, Christmas and 1st January. This tour is also unavailable on the first Sunday of each month as museums entry is free and they do not accept reservations for those days, meaning we cannot guarantee entry times.
Bag storage: Museum regulations do not permit backpacks and there is no convenient storage facility. Please bring only shoulder bags. The museum further requests, "to get you through security faster, we'd be grateful if you could bring as few bags with you as possible, and try to put all the metal items you're carrying in a single container before going through the metal detector. Thank you."
Museum security and regulations: Due to increased security, some delays in entry are to be expected. We do in any case offer the quickest possibly entry. It is strictly forbidden to touch the artworks; to lean on the bases of sculptures or on the walls; to smoke; to throw chewing gum on the floor; to eat or drink; to sit on the floor or on the protective railings; to speak in a loud voice; to disturb other visitors; to use laser pointers; to behave in an unseemly manner detrimental to the dignity of the museum; to bring backpacks or long umbrellas; to use mobile (cell) phones; and, to use selfie-sticks. Photography and filming are allowed only without the use of flash, lighting or tripods, and only for personal rather than commercial use.
Skip-the-line entry: Artviva Tours pre-reserves your tickets in advance but please note that even with reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the museum. We guarantee that in spite of any eventual delays, our tour guides ensure all aspects of our museum tour are covered.
