From Giotto to Michelangelo and the Golden Age of the Florentine Painting


Giotto and the beginning of Italian painting, the masters of Early Renaissance, Masaccio, Paolo Uccello, Filippo Lippi, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli's mythologic allegories, Verrocchio and his talented pupil Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and the "maniera moderna", Raphael's sublime beauty, Bronzino's aristocratic style, the warm sensuality of Titian and the Venetian painting . . .

Some of the famous artists we meet in our promenade two hundred years long, from the early 1300s to the early 1500s. Silent testimonials of the extraordinary beauty around us, the Roman statues along the gallery contribute to making the visit of the Uffizi into a really unique experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

Francesco is very polite, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and on time. He let us move at our pace, even though we went over our allotted time, and he seemed delighted to answer any questions that we had. He knows the history extremely well, and he shares it in a manner that you can understand. His English is excellent, and our experience in the Uffizi was so much more enhanced by him being there. Thank you Francesco!
