The Medici Family

In 1560, Giorgio Vasari began construction of the Uffizi building to house the administrative and judiciary offices of Florence for the first Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo I de’ Medici. At the time, the Medici family’s influence in Florence was very powerful. Beyond art collectors, members of the wealthy Medici family were great patrons of art. Without their support, many of the most celebrated masterpieces on display in the Uffizi Gallery might not have existed.

Botticelli's Primavera Painting

Sandro Botticelli was an Early Renaissance Italian painter who belonged to the Florentine School of artists. Visit his most famous and recognizable paintings, Primavera and the Birth of Venus, inside the Uffizi Gallery on this private tour.See For visitors with deeper art history knowledge, the opportunity to admire the painting’s vibrant composition in person is a rare opportunity.

Don't Look Too Long

The Uffizi Gallery is also home to more ominous works of art, like Caravaggio’s Medusa. A gripping study of the dark mythological figure is an outstanding example of Caravaggio’s revolutionary approach to darkness and light. Be careful though, if you look for too long into Medusa's wild eyes, you might turn to stone! Did you know Caravaggio created two versions of his Medusa? This first is held in a private collection while we visit the second (created a year later) on this private Uffizi tour.

The Venus of Urbino

Titian’s most sensual painting, the Venus of Urbino, is an exercise in female eroticism. In a departure from previous depictions of the Goddess of Love, Venus appears human in his version. She holds a bouquet of flowers in her right hand while her left hand is placed suggestively between her thighs. With the contrast between the warm colors of her flesh and the dark background, the sensuality of the painting is overwhelming. Learn about the story behind this celebrated work of art, and others by the master Titian.

A Rare Painting by Michelangelo

One of the few examples of Michelangelo’s painting, the Holy Family painting dates back to the same time period as his David statue. Combined with Michelangelo’s breathtaking frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the Doni Tondo laid the foundations for the Late Renaissance. Featuring unconventional poses and iridescent colors, this is the only completed panel painting by the mature Michelangelo to survive to the present day.

 

These highlights are just a few of the treasures housed at the museum. With the help of your own personal guide, this private Uffizi tour is an excellent opportunity to learn about the incredible stories associated with each work of art and the context in which they were created. And don't forget, all our guides are locals. If you need help deciding where to eat in Florence or what else you should see, don't hesitate to ask. We're here to help you have the Italian vacation of a lifetime.

Private uffizi tour

The Medici family really really love their art!! So much to see and learn, without a guide you could get lost! It was nice to squeeze through big crowds bc it was just the 3 of us and easy to maneuver.

Amazing tour of Florence

We love art but we'd never been on a guided museum tour before. It was amazing! We got to see such fantastic art and our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. We will be sure to use the Roman Guy again when we are in Rome next year!
