Overall rating

based on 15,397 reviews

Our tour of the Uffizi Gallery was led by an Austrian. The tour was super structured, easy to understand and initiated us into the time of the Renaissance. We were able to wonderfully understand and understand the change in the pictures shown. The tour was primarily dedicated to the greats of that time and let us experience the understanding of art and the uniqueness of the Medici family. We were very happy about the amount of information, we would not have been able to discover and understand so much on our own. There was neither too much nor too little information - what was chosen was a pleasure to look at.

Uffizi Gallery is splendid! I recommend taking a guide since there are more than 1500 art pieces. You need to have someone to guide you through because if you are not familiar with history and art you'll get lost and overwhelmed.

Wonderful guide who was passionate about the art. very small group and no queuing at the gallery. Would highly recommend

Thanks for the passionate and in-depth, knowledge sharing!!

everything was amazing, you have to see it to believe it
