Who were the Medici? Statesmen, art collectors, oligarchs? The Medici were one of the world's most powerful families and created Florence as the birthplace and center of the Renaissance. They commissioned artists and bought countless pieces of incredible art. They also were not only influential in the politics of the Florentine Republic but were the center of European affairs for centuries.

Botticelli's Birth of Venus
Sandro Botticelli's masterpiece, the Birth of Venus is the most famous work in the Gallery and is also our first stop on tour. Now also the mascot for the olive oil with the same surname as the artist, the original canvas is spectacular. Often linked with purity and beauty, the painting represents the Roman goddess of love rising from a clam shell. Also in the room same room dedicated to Botticelli, you will see the Allegory of the Spring to which your guide will explain the painting's controversy.
Michelangelo & Raphael Room
Not only two of the four ninja turtles, Michelangelo and Raphael are two of the most influential artists in Renaissance art and beyond. Here you will see Michelangelo's The Holy Family, also called the Doni Tondo after the man who commissioned it and the round plate it is set on. Interestingly, in the same room you will find a painting of Mister Doni and his wife Maddalena Strozzi painted by who else, Raphael.
Leonardo's Annunciation and Adoration of the Maggi
Well before Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, he sketched many earlier works which can now be seen in the Uffizi Gallery. You will see the Adoration of the Maggi, a scene painted by da Vinci with a juxtaposition of horses fighting and a serene church. You'll also get to see the Annunciation, which was not accredited to Leonardo until years after it was painted.

I am not very into art but when in Rome (or Florence). This tour was great as it was designed to be the highlights. It was very honest, intelligent, and the guide did not try to waste our time.
I very much enjoyed the tour, we got to see the highlights of this large museum. I found it a great bargain for the price as our guide seemed truly like an expert. Skip the line is necessary for sure.
Even the kids weren't bored
My worry was that my teenager and 6 year old would not enjoy the museum experience. This tour was only an hour long and it worked out well for us. We got to see the highlights without any hassle, its a great option

Piazza della Signoria, in the center of the square, at the Equestrian Statue of Cosimo I. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.
