Uffizi Gallery in Florence


Uffizi Gallery in Florence

If you are planning a trip to Florence, you will be amazed how many things you will want to do and see in this city. It’s difficult to decide either to start with the Brunelleschi’s Dome, Ponte Vecchio, a huge dish of fiorentina steak or the Uffizi Gallery. Yes, Uffizi! And you cannot skip this latter one because we all love and need outstanding Italian art.

Now that you have a plan, you should decide how to actually get there. Although it is located just in the heart of Florence, the remarkable queue to Uffizi might scary you too much. Well, if you are pregnant there is no big deal, as you will just jump over the hundred-meter line of visitors. But if you are not… Get your ticket in advance or, better, hire a guide who among other things will help you not to get lost in the middle of hundreds of masterpieces prized by the whole world. And Cultural Italy is here for you,  ready to manage both private or group tours and to tell all the secrets of The Birth of Venus and La Primavera by Botticelli, Portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Urbino by Piero della Francesca, Madonna of the Goldfinch by Raphael, Venus of Urbino by Titian and many other original works that made the art history of Italy. 

And what is more, besides the priceless canvas, you will have a chance to glance from the museum halls splendid and unique views of Florentine roofs, Brunelleschi’s Dome, Ponte Vecchio and the Tower of Palazzo Vecchio. Not to mention, of course, a cup of good cappuccino to sip on the terrace of Uffizi.
