Description

Recognized as the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence holds UNESCO World Heritage status, boasting unparalleled architectural marvels and housing the esteemed Uffizi Gallery, a pinnacle of artistic prominence. Originally a 16th-century palace that transformed into a museum in 1865, the Uffizi Gallery stands as one of the earliest modern museums, gifted to Florence by the Medici family. Designed by Giorgio Vasari, the building initially served as office spaces for Florentine magistrates, hence its name, 'Uffizi,' meaning offices in Italian. Its construction, initiated in 1560, culminated in 1581, presenting an intriguing structure with a lengthy internal courtyard overlooking the Arno river, along with a signature semi-enclosed courtyard adorned with sculptures of renowned artists from the 19th century, linking the gallery to Piazza della Signoria. As one of Italy's most significant museums and second only to the Vatican Museums in visitation, the Uffizi Gallery holds the distinction of being the world's oldest museum, catering to visitors by request since the 16th century and officially opening to the public in 1765. A beloved attraction in Florence, the gallery proudly houses an exquisite collection of invaluable Italian Renaissance artworks, notably the revered Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Following the tour, you'll have the opportunity to independently explore the galleries at your own pace.
