This tour will allow you to visit the Uffizi Gallery - one of the most famous in the world - avoiding the long queues with early entrance. An expert guide will accompany you and help you better understand the artistic masterpieces that helped turn Florence into the center for cultural and artistic revolution. Works from Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo, and many more are all on view.
You will have the opportunity to enjoy an Italian breakfast in the museum bar, enjoying views from the terrace overlooking the Loggia dei Lanzi. The beauty does not stop here - next you will explore the Vasari Corridor, a true masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Built to allow the Medici family to travel safely from the Pitti Palace to the Palazzo Vecchio (the Town Hall), this 1-km long passageway is a must see in Florence.
Once you have reached the other end of the Vasari Corridor, you will discover the beauty of the Pitti Palace. Built in the second half of the 15th Century, the palace was built for the famous and important Pitti family. However, it was left unfinished until the building was purchased by the Medici family in 1550. Under the guidance of the famous architect Vasari, the palace was expanded vastly. The grandeur of the palace was to reflect the power and influence of the Medici family, who proved to be one of the most important influencers of art, culture, and political ideologies in Western world history. Visit the sumptuous Palatine Gallery and the baroque rooms housing the Midici's own private collection of more than 500 artworks (including pieces from Raffaello, Tiziano, Botticelli, Caravaggio, and many more).
