What to Expect
The Uffizi Gallery in Florence is one of Italy’s standout attractions. During this exclusive, skip-the-line guided tour, bypass the crowds waiting outside and enter the museum directly.

Artworks are spread throughout 100 rooms, so savor the collections with the time saved with your skip-the-line admission tickets.
