Description

Enjoy a guided group tour of the Uffizi Gallery which boasts an unrivaled array of masterpieces from the brushes of Italy's finest painters. 

 

Begin the tour by learning about the birth of the Renaissance following the slow transition from the Middle Ages. See works by Cimabue and Giotto which still reflect a late-medieval outlook on the relationship between the human and the divine. Marvel at Masaccio's revolutionary experiments with three-dimensional space and the great canvases of Sandro Botticelli. Then, listen to an introduction about the rare genius of Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael. Admire Titian's sensuous and colorful works and encounter Michelangelo's Doni Tondo. Discover the terrifying chiaroscuro works of Caravaggio and learn about how he succeeded in inventing a new pictorial language. 

 

End your visit to the Uffizi Gallery with a walk along the outside of the Vasari Corridor, an arcaded walkway that allowed the Medici family to cross the city undisturbed by the general populace towards the Ponte Vecchio. As you gaze into the waters of the river Arno rushing below, reflect on the great masters who gave the world of the Renaissance such powerful visual form, and whose memories live on in the incomparable paintings of the Uffizi Gallery.
