Overview

Skip the line at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery in Florence on a walking tour. Led by a professional guide, walk among Renaissance masterpieces, learning about the history of the works and the great artists behind them. Get an up-close look at Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation, and hear the story behind the Uffizi Gallery.
  • Skip-the-line tour of Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, with an art-expert guide
  • View the highlights of the iconic gallery and learn about its history
  • Hear tales of Renaissance artists such as Giotto and Leonardo da Vinci
  • See Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Caravaggio’s Bacchus
  • Learn about Florence's medieval Medici family, whose rulers nurtured the great artists of the day
Designed by Giorgio Vasari, the Uffizi Gallery was originally constructed for the city’s judiciary offices, but slowly filled with artwork owned by the rulers of the Medici family. After the Medici’s fall from power in the 18th century, the lavish structure was transformed into a museum, today comprising 1,500 pieces of art in 45 rooms.

Your tour will begin in front of the Uffizi Gallery in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide. Head straight inside, bypassing the crowds and long lines with your priority access ticket. Your guide will take you to each of the museum’s highlights, stopping to admire Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, da Vinci’s Annunciation and more. Afterward, head to upper level to see masterpieces from Caravaggio.

Then continuing exploring the museum at your own pace if you wish, or check out the rooftop café to kick back with a refreshment (own expense).

Uffizi Gallery is more than just Venus on the Half Shell

Our tour guide was excellent and it really was a SMALL group tour. We were only four people so we could get through the crowds easily. I learned so much from our knowledgeable guide!

Terrible Company, Good Guide

CAF Tours is very unorganized!! We booked the 9:00 am tour, but they sent us an email the day before in the afternoon (which we didn't see until we connected to the wifi in our hotel at night) to let us know that they had cancelled our tour! They gave us the option of taking the 4:00 pm, which we did, but completely ruined our plans for the rest of the day (we had other tours booked for that afternoon). Since we really wanted to do the Uffizi with a guide, we cancelled our other plans and went to the 4:00 pm tour. When we got there, they were extremely unorganized. A lot of people were there claiming for other cancelled tours, no lines, not enough staff. We had a terrible experience. Once inside the museum, our guide was very good, and we ended up having a good tour, but the for the hassle of dealing with this company, it wasn't worth it. Please DO take a tour to the Uffizi Gallery, which is amazing and a must do in Florence, but DON"T take it with CAF Tours. Use any other company, which there are many other good ones. Taking a tour of the gallery is definitely better than doing it on your own, because you get much more from the guide's interpretation and background, and just watching the painting by yourself.

I am not a big museum fan. Hence I wanted a short and sweet tour, in and out with a knowledgeable guide. I got it right. No lines. No screaming kids. Perfect for a solo traveler. Fredericka was my guide. Perfect. 10/10

We went on the early morning tour of the museum. The lines weren’t super long, but being in a small group where we had a guide describe the art and history surrounding the pieces made this tour really worth it!

The tour guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable and easy to understand. It made the museum so much more enjoyable to know what you were seeing and to see the progression of the arts from early paintings to more advanced paintings, etc.

Tour itself was very good. Saw most all of the of the greatest Uffizi works but not much more. The guide did her best to skirt the crowds. Problem I had was when I showed up for my morning tour I was told it was cancelled. They said they sent me an email, which has yet to show up. They did put me on a late tour, which did not leave time to see the rest of the collection before closing.
