Uffizi Gallery

Uffizi Gallery

 A unique collection of world-famous paintings, breath the real Renaissance Art with this tour!

The Uffizi Gallery was designed by the famous architect Vasari in 1560, commissioned by Cosimo I of the Medici, and it was initially set to be the Medici Family’s office headquarters (hence the name Uffizi, which means offices in English) and it was later converted into a museum in the late XVI century.

The visit of this museum, which hosts more than 90 rooms, is divided into two floors.

That’s why we selected the finest and the most significant paintings.

We’ll start from the second floor, where we have the Middle Period works. We’ll learn about artists like Giotto, who started to break with the ancient Byzantine simple tradition of painting and moved into a new revolutionary way of creating art with more realism. We’ll then go to the Early Renaissance, where beauty, elegance and grace are the real protagonists.

But millions of tourists come every year to the Uffizi Gallery to admire the Late

Renaissance and that’s why we’ll spend more time admiring Botticelli’s, Leonardo Michelangelo’s and Raphael’s artwork.

Finally, by moving on to the fist floor, we’ll better understand the heritage of the greatest artists of the XV ad XVI Century, ending with Caravaggio’s dramatic art coinciding with the beginning of the Baroque style.
