Private guided tour of the highlights of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence
The Uffizi gallery is one of the most famous museum of the world. Built for Cosimo I to host the offices of the Government, now the building hosts at the second floor an amazing number of paintings and ancient Roman scultures. It is difficult to get an orientation and choose the most important paintings to see, unless you want to spend inside an entire day!

We will spend about 2 Hours inside the museum and we will admire its highlights speaking about the history of painting from 1300 to 1600 and focusing of course on every single painter style, as well as the history of the building itself.

Elena was helpful, knowledgeable, and interesting. She took considerable trouble to find out what interested my granddaughter and husband and carefully took us around the Uffizzi, explaining the pictures, architecture, history and context. She also took the trouble to find out where a wheelchair for my husband could be hired which made an enormous difference to the whole visit. She also found other guides to show us the Duomo and Pitti Palace. Her help made the visit extra special for us.
