Description

The Uffizi Gallery and Basilica of Santa Croce are undoubtedly two of Florence’s must-see attractions. The world-famous Uffizi gets its name from the old Florentine word for offices, as it once housed the city’s Administrative Offices, Tribunal and Archive. Today it holds the bulk of the Medici’s private art collection bequeathed to the people of Florence upon the death of the last member of the Medici line.

With its breathtaking works by Botticelli, Lippi, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo de Vinci, and Caravaggio, just to name a few, it’s not hard to see why the Uffizi Gallery is one of Florence’s most popular museums. Yet its sheer scale and long lines can leave visitors frustrated and overwhelmed. Not to worry! With our exclusive tour service, you’ll skip the lines and your private tour guide will steer you to all the most important works, detailing their individual histories and significance.

After exploring this unparalleled collection you’ll venture into the world’s largest Franciscan church, the Basilica of Santa Croce. The basilica’s interior possesses great artistic wealth with Giotto and Donatello being among its contributors. Yet, Santa Croce is best known for the many talented people buried there, and for whom it has been given the nickname the “Temple of the Glories”. Galileo, Machiavelli, and Michelangelo are among their eternal residents. Join us for an unforgettable adventure into the lives and works of some of Florence’s most fascinating characters.
