Private tour:On Request
get to know the Medici family and how they ruled Florence for 300 years, and visit some of the most beautiful paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, and Filippo Lippi, as well as Botticelli's famous Birth of Venus.
To understand this museum, first you will need to know who Lorenzo de Medici was and what he did for the Renaissance.
In this guided tour you will discover the best works of Giotto, Cimabue, Lorenzo Monaco, Masaccio, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Tiziano. You will also see Michelangelo’s painting on canvas depicting the sacred family, Mary, Jesus and Joseph; four masterpieces made by Leonardo da Vinci; and to end in beauty, the paintings of Caravaggio: Medusa, the Sacrifice of Isaac, and the Sick Bacchus.
Next we will visit some of the most important statues of ancient Rome. You can see them close up, but you’re not allowed to go inside the room because of the precious mosaics on the floor. Another venue not to be missed is the statue of Laocoon and His Sons, sculpted by Baccio Bandinelli, whose inspiration came from the original statue of Laocoon at the Vatican Museums in Rome.
For this tour you will be able to skip the line. Our guide will provide you with tickets and all reservation fees will be paid in advance by Eden Walks. All you have to do is show up at the meeting point 20 minutes ahead of time, making sure to bring an FFP mask, have had 3 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, and have a green pass or paper with you which says that you have been vaccinated. Bring water with you; the visit will last around 2.5 hours, so be prepared. The museums can sometimes be very crowded.
During this fascinating voyage into the height of Renaissance beauty, you will hear about world-famous poets like Dante, Poliziano and Machiavelli and monks like Savonarola. You will also learn about Lorenzo de Medici, the father of the Renaissance, and how Florence became a republic and drove the Medici family out. While you’re walking through the museum, don't forget to gaze at the stunning views of Florence’s beautiful bridges, like the Ponte Vecchio.
Last but not least, you will see above the old bridge the secret passage used by Cosimo de Medici, called Vasari Corridor, from which you can look into every corner of the city. It used to connect the Uffizi Museums with Pitti Palace, the other residence of Cosimo de Medici, which he bought for his first wife Eleanor of Toledo.
