Skip-the-line private tour of Italian Renaissance masterpieces


The Uffizi gallery needs no introduction: it's home to some of the most famous works of art by such Great Masters as Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Titian, Caravaggio and many others, Ancient Roman sculptures, Medici portraits, intriguing grotesques and a unique building site. We'll situate the most important works of the Italian Renaissance in time, business and politics of Florence and Italy to discover the personalities of artists and their patrons. We'll talk about mythology, Renaissance art and politics, Christian thought and how it was depicted in art, discover techniques of painting and even the prices of works. We'll admire some "obscene" masterpieces as well as "flawless" works. One of my favorite highlights is the mystery of Michelangelo's Tondo Doni - a real "Da Vinci code".
Brilliant licensed art and history guide, PhD: expect an outstanding tour!
