Together with our English-speaking guide You will visit one of the greatest museums in the world - the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Here a wealth of beautiful masterpieces are gathered . More than 1000 works are shown in 45 halls, in addition numerous sculptures, historical maps and much more.

The building that houses the Galleria, one of the most outstanding art collections in the world, was built in 1560 by Vasari. It was originally commissioned by Cosimo I, for the offices of the Florentine state. Vasari conceived the great square, enclosed by the two wings of the building and in communication with the Lungarno through a wide arch. Vasari again, built the long corridor that bears his name and which unites Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi, crosses the Arno river on the Ponte Vecchio and arrives to Palazzo Pitti. The building was converted into a gallery at the behest of Francis I and thanks to the work of Buontalenti that divided and decorated the interior rooms. In 1737, Anna Maria Ludovica, the last of the Medici, gave the Uffizi to the city of Florence.

The origins of the oldest museum in modern Europe date back to 1581. That year, Francesco I de’ Medici serves the gallery with paintings, statues and other precious things on the top floor of the Uffizi, open to anyone who requests it. The gallery is set up chronologically in 45 rooms arranged around three corridors adorned with ancient sculptures, tapestries dating back to the sixteenth century and a series of portraits. If the Uffizi Gallery can be called the most famous museum in the world, this is not just because of its superb works of art and its buildings. Its unique quality also comes from the origins of its collections, from its history wich goes back more that four centuries.
