No visit to Florence is complete without going to see the magnificent works of art located in one of the most famous museums in the world, the Uffizi Gallery. Touring the halls and rooms of the Uffizi will give you access to the many paintings that have held people in awe for decades.
The Uffizi museum has been one of the most visited galleries in Europe for decades now and missing out on the majestic pieces within is something you don’t want to do. Planning a trip to Florence should always include plans to explore the many rooms of this museum and having a guided tour within will help you to better appreciate the artwork found here.
Admire and enjoy the works of art by Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio, and more. Gaze in wonder at the magnificence of the pieces by the masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Not to be missed when in this museum are the exhibition halls that contain some of Botticelli’s most popular paintings.
Two of these paintings by Botticelli are his most famous masterpieces: “The Birth of Venus” and “The Dance of Spring.” “The Birth of Venus” is an icon of the museum, and shows the goddess of love emerging, newly born, in a shell from the foam of the sea. Her delicate beauty is the epitome of spiritual grace and purity in this painting, which is a reflection of Neo Platonic ideals.
This guided tour concludes at the Uffizi Terrace, which is where you will be able to enjoy an exclusive and magnificent view of Florence’s most popular and important structures as well as monuments. When the guided tour is over, you also have the option to stay on longer in the museum and to explore the many rooms and artwork it has at your leisure.
