Fortrinnsrett: Omvisning i Uffizi-galleriet i Firenze
Use your skip-the-line ticket to avoid the long main entrance lines and head inside the world-famous gallery. Your tour will concentrate on the highlights of its collection, made up of 1,500 pieces of artwork in 45 rooms.
Designed by Giorgio Vasari, the Uffizi was originally built to house Florence’s judiciary offices, but was gradually filled with art by the Medici family, the city’s medieval rulers. After they lost power in the 18th century, the palace became a museum.
The Uffizi is famed for its glorious Renaissance artworks, and your guide will take you to the most interesting galleries. Admire treasures by Giotto and visit halls dedicated to Michelangelo, da Vinci, Caravaggio and Raphael, all masters of their time. Learn about works such as da Vinci’s Annunciation and Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo and explore the gallery's upper level, home to masterpieces by Caravaggio.
After around 1.5 hours, your tour ends inside the gallery. You're then free to leave or stay on to explore independently. On a morning or afternoon tour, you can also visit the Uffizi’s rooftop café for refreshments (own expense).
Evening Tour with Aperitivo or Dinner Upgrade (Tuesdays only, July to September):If you’ve chosen an evening tour of the Uffizi Gallery, why not upgrade to enjoy an aperitivo or dinner afterward? When your tour ends, follow your guide to a restaurant in nearby Piazza della Signoria, one of the world’s most beautiful squares.
Then, say farewell to your guide and savor a classic Italian aperitivo. Sip on a drink such as a glass of prosecco and enjoy snacks such as focaccine (Italian scones).
Alternatively, upgrade to enjoy a delicious 4-course dinner. Gaze over the illuminated square as you enjoy dishes such as pasta and roasted pork (see the Itinerary for a sample menu), served with mineral water. (Other drinks at own expense).
After relaxing over dinner, make your own way back to your hotel.

CAF Tours is very unorganized!! We booked the 9:00 am tour, but they sent us an email the day before in the afternoon (which we didn't see until we connected to the wifi in our hotel at night) to let us know that they had cancelled our tour! They gave us the option of taking the 4:00 pm, which we did, but completely ruined our plans for the rest of the day (we had other tours booked for that afternoon). Since we really wanted to do the Uffizi with a guide, we cancelled our other plans and went to the 4:00 pm tour. When we got there, they were extremely unorganized. A lot of people were there claiming for other cancelled tours, no lines, not enough staff. We had a terrible experience. Once inside the museum, our guide was very good, and we ended up having a good tour, but the for the hassle of dealing with this company, it wasn't worth it. Please DO take a tour to the Uffizi Gallery, which is amazing and a must do in Florence, but DON"T take it with CAF Tours. Use any other company, which there are many other good ones. Taking a tour of the gallery is definitely better than doing it on your own, because you get much more from the guide's interpretation and background, and just watching the painting by yourself.
We went on the early morning tour of the museum. The lines weren’t super long, but being in a small group where we had a guide describe the art and history surrounding the pieces made this tour really worth it!
the tour and the guide was very informative, and the art was amazing. this was the second time to visit the Uffizi, and enjoyed it as much as the first time.
We took this tour to see the Birth of Venus painting. It was magical. The Gallery was extremely crowded but I guess that is to be expected. Loved skipping to the front of the line!
The guide was not adequately informed about the paintings. Poor knowledge is not what one is looking out for in a museum guide.
