Walking tour with Uffizi

An extraordinary collection of Renaissance works of art

Our first stop is the Uffizi Gallery itself. This world-renowned museum houses an extraordinary collection of Renaissance works of art. With over 1.5 million visitors each year, it is one of the most popular galleries in the world. As we enter the Uffizi, we will start on the ground floor, where you can admire ancient Roman statues and Greek sculptures.

These masterpieces will give you a glimpse into the art of the classical world. Then, we will move on to the first floor, where you will immerse yourself in the beauty of the Italian Renaissance. You will have the opportunity to see iconic works by artists such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Raphael. Marvel at Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera," and be captivated by the beauty and elegance of these incredible paintings. Moving along, we will explore the Vasari Corridor. This elevated passageway connects the Uffizi Gallery with the Palazzo Pitti on the other side of the Arno River.

Originally built for the Medici family in the 16th century, it now houses a collection of self-portraits by famous artists. Once we reach the other side of the river, we will find ourselves in the Oltrarno neighborhood. This area is known for its quaint streets, artisan workshops, and charming atmosphere.

Take some time to wander through the streets and admire the local crafts, such as gold jewelry, leather goods, and handmade ceramics. To end our walking tour, we will head back towards the Uffizi Gallery, but not before stopping at the Ponte Vecchio. This iconic bridge is known for its rows of jewelry shops and breathtaking views of the Arno River. Take a moment to capture some photos and soak in the beauty of this famous landmark.
