Full description
Join a small group tour to climb Brunelleschi's Dome and explore the masterpieces housed in the Uffizi Gallery. Skip the lines with pre-reserved tickets to both attractions. Start the tour by meeting your expert guide at the Piazza del Duomo. See the Baptistry and its ornate doors right in front of the cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore. Listen as your guide explains how this place has been the religious center of Florence since Roman times. Marvel at the exterior of the cathedral which dominates the skyline and its famous dome.  Next, enter the Duomo with your reserved skip-the-line tickets from a separate entrance. Climb Brunelleschi's iconic dome with your expert guide. Visit the internal terraces and see artworks and frescoes by masters of the Renaissance. Reach the top and admire scenic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside from outside the cupola. Then, follow your guide as you take a short stroll through the wonderful old town. Take in the sights at Piazza Uffizi before you head into the Uffizi Gallery with your skip-the-line tickets. Learn about this historical palace designed by the architect Vasari that houses artworks from local churches and the Medici family’s collection. Discover paintings from the Gothic Ages to the Late Renaissance displayed in chronological order. Soak up your guide's expertise as they show you works by Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael. The tour ends at the Uffizi Gallery so you can enjoy more time to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, your guide will be happy to escort you to a cafe or bar for an aperitivo to recover.

We were twice as lucky. We had our guide, Silke, all alone and Silke works scientifically in the field of art history. She is German and explains the art in the Uffizi with a lot of passion. It explains details and provides background information. But to the extent that as an interested normal tourist you are not overstrained or bored. Absolutely TOP.

The time window for the cathedral dome is unfortunately a bit short - but probably due to the circumstances (Corona). Otherwise very worth seeing.

An absolutely perfect tour! As an art historian, Silke gave us a wonderful overview of Florentine history and art. She told so clearly structured and at the same time lively and interesting that you could listen to her for hours. Absolutely and unreservedly to be recommended.
