Both Gothic and Renaissance highlights are enclosed here, within the walls of one of the most famous museums in the world for its valuable collections of paintings and ancient statues: the Uffizi Gallery of Florence. Names such as Giotto, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo and Caravaggio are some masters of painting that you'll meet along the guided tour that covers both floors of the Gallery. It also includes a small coffee/bathroom break from the beautiful outdoor terrace where it's possible to have a coffee or gelato and, at the same time, enjoy the view of Piazza della Signoria and the city; it feels like you could touch Palazzo Vecchio with one hand! Each work is contextualized by the guide at the historical moment in which it was performed, this to help to understand also the political and social situation that led the artist towards that precise artistic subject; often with subliminal messages that do not appear with a superficial reading.

The museum houses a wealth of priceless and enormous works of art: in addition to the works on display, in fact, hundreds of other works are preserved in the museum's archives.
