Description

Learn, explore and capture the essence of artistic talent and enchantment with an exclusive brand-new Florencetown experience: a unique Florence Uffizi Masterclass with an Art Expert!

Conducted by a highly experienced and charismatic English-speaking professional art guide, our Masterclass leads you through the fascinating corridors of one of the world's most celebrated art collections, the Uffizi Gallery, taking you into the frames and behind the paint of legendary masterpieces, the very ones that made Florence the capital of a real cultural and artistic revolution: the Renaissance.
During the visit you will learn about Florence's history, discover the secrets of the Vasari Corridor, the Medici family's secret aerial passageway, and discover the true beauty and creative talent encompassed in the Florence Uffizi collection.
From Leonardo's genius and Giotto's one-of-a-kind touches, to Botticelli's magical flower-filled "Primavera" and striking "Venere", you will enjoy the rare privilege of diving into each work of art, grasping its meaning and seeing it come to life for your eyes only.
With a focus by our art expert, uncover the Vasari Corridor history and secrets (no entrance in the corridor - please see notes) : Hidden between city houses and even passing through a church, the Vasari Corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance.

There will be a break during the visit: take the time for a frothy cappuccino or coffee at the Uffizi Café located on the terrace above the ancient Loggia dei Lanzi, with a spectacular panorama on history.

Our signature Art Masterclass is much more than an Uffizi Gallery visit, it is a life-changing cultural experience.

---------------------------------------------------------------

PLEASE NOTE - VASARI CORRIDOR CURRENTLY UNDER MAJOR RECONSTRUCTION.
In 2007 Florencetown was the first tour operator ever to open this hidden gem regularly to the public, making it possible for everybody to discover it. From December 2016 the Vasari Corridor will be closed to undergo a major reconstruction to highlight even better its architectural characteristics and add some safety exits. This will probably take all 2020.
Florencetown will be ready to lead guests again on our Vasari Corridor exclusive visits as soon as it will reopen, and in the meantime we think it’s absolutely worth it to still discover its history and secrets: your guide will tell you about the Corridor during the visit of the Uffizi Gallery.

Fantastic experience and very educated guide!

We came to Florence without a tour setup for the Uffuzi, which apparently was a mistake. However, Florencetown tours was able to accommodate us last minute and our guide, Lisa, was fantastic! Literally. We could have not asked for a better experience. Looking forwadd to our Cinque Terre trip with them tomorrow. Prego!

Worth every penny

Very knowledgable guide, fluent in english as advertised. Had a significant impact on the quality of my visit, I still remember facts months later because of the great quality of instruction. Very friendly and personable as well. Would pay again.

Uffizi Tour

The Ufffizi Masterclass by an Art Expert and Vasari Corridor Focus was excellent - Francesca, our tour guide, was very professional, knowledgeable, and very pleasant. It was our third time at the Uffizi and each time we learn something new. Excellent tour. Definitely would recommend Florencetown tours.

Great Tour of the Arts

We had a great time with Lisa. She was very professional & had a very in depth understanding of the subject matter. We learned a lot of Medici Family and the various arts. Including the methods and how they made. She knew all the names of all the works! Very impressive! It was a long tour, but it was worth it. Thank you!

Uffizi Tour

I truly enjoyed the tour to the Uffizi Gallery, Francesca Lore was an excellent guide, very professional and knowledgeable, plus very fun to have as a guide. Additionally, Florencetown Tours was very helpful and accommodating by rescheduling my tour after I've mistakenly missed my original booking. All in all an excellent experience. Thank you!
