What You'll See Along the Way
The Uffizi Gallery is filled to the brim with an unbelievably vast collection of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces. Originally the administrative center of Medici power in the city, from the word 'uffici', or 'offices' in Italian, the top floor was dedicated to the family's private treasure trove of art, which grew to occupy the entire building.

What Our Customers Say...
Our guide was Stefano—he was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and English was excellent. He pointed out small details that we wouldn’t have noticed, and he provided colorful background about Florence’s history, painters, and the paintings.
My wife and I recently used What a Life Tours for a Full Day in Florence consisting of the Uffizi, Accademia and walking tour after being on their Vatican and Coloseum tours in Rome last year. Once again, they did not disappoint. Both Mat at the Uffizi and Elizabeth on the Accademia/walking tour were a wealth of knowledge and their passion about the artwork and Florence itself was very clear. Despite the intermittent rain, Elizabeth took us on a great walking tour of the historical centre after our visit with David concluded. The insight we were able to get from walking around with someone who had lived there for years was a perfect end to our day. We would use What a Life Tours again for sure...
