The Uffizi Gallery Tour

Tour Description

The ancient palace of the Offices of the Grand Duchy of Toscany houses the most important collection of the Italian Renaissance. It is one of the oldest museums of the world and perhaps the finest example of the Medici Family patronage. Giorgio Vasari, the architect, achieved to construct a glorious building utilizing the canon of classic architecture by light of the invention of the Geometric Perspective.

Not only the content, but the container will be our focus: monumental staircases, fresco-roofed terraces and breathtaking views will be the perfect and most adequate introduction to the Beautiful interiors.

Walking in the halls of the Uffizi Gallery you will realize why this museum is the root of western culture in terms of imagery and aesthetics. You will discover you belong to this beauty and that this beauty is part of your world.

We will learn why the painter Giotto is the father of the Italian School of Painting by witnessing the very beginnings of the definition of Geometric Perspective. The most iconic paintings of Botticelli will have no more secrets for you and have you refresh the definition of Renaissance expression.
Together we will discover the young talent of Leonardo Da Vinci and his ability of turning a still life into a dynamic and interactive figure. New light will be shed upon Michelangelo as a painter. Not only will we appreciate his talent but learn how sensitive he could have been.
The elegant and defined works of Raffaello will set a course into the lives of crucial popes as you will discover more about their actions, contributions to the religion and art, their weakness. Tiziano will represent a sincere cultural shock with his strong and mostly unknown naked Venus. Caravaggio, the most cinematographic painter of the past, scandalous and dramatic, intense and passionate, will conclude our excursion into the Arts.

This tour will not be an academic art lecture, but a diverting experience where side-stories, anecdotes and funny revelations will be constantly provided; is the tour where you will be both moved and amused. We assure you that you will feel sorry to leave when reaching the exit.
