Tour Description
This two and a half hour long tour pairs families with specially trained guides for an interactive exploration of the Uffizi Gallery designed to bring this world famous collection of Renaissance art to life for budding art enthusiasts and introduce them to the great masters of Italy.

We’ll begin our time together with a short introduction in Piazza della Signoria, discussing the Uffizi's structure and its relation to Palazzo Vecchio, Florence's town hall, as well as the importance of the Medici family. After spending some time outside, we will continue on to the museum, where we will spend roughly two hours exploring the collection. Looking for the grown up version of this tour? Try our Uffizi Tour

The guide will begin an engrossing dialogue with children about the art, focusing on recurring subjects, themes and symbols, the historical background in which these works were created and biographical information about the artists, while creating an atmosphere of exploration and participation. By the end of the walk, the children will have a very clear idea of how and why art is created and will be able to better appreciate the artwork they will encounter throughout their trip.

About You

In order to plan the best possible experience for your children, it would be helpful for us to know some background. Have they traveled to other countries in the past? If so, where? Have they studied any subjects in school that would relate to the walk? Are they interested in art, music, even food? The more you can tell us, the better.


What is a private tour?
Our private tours are limited exclusively to travelers in your party. They are designed to provide a learning experience that is completely tailored to you and your traveling companions. Private tours give you more flexibility with scheduling (you decide when the walk best fits in your trip), the ability to tailor your itinerary (we'll work to match the itinerary to the interests and dynamics of your group), and more personalized time with your guide.

Will you pre-purchase tickets?
Yes, we pre-purchase timed tickets to the Uffizi. Your guide will have them on hand, and we will enter the museum together as a group. However, please keep in mind that we will still be required to wait in the security line. The Uffizi is extremely crowded, and at times, this line may take up to 20 minutes. Regardless, our guide will spend this time wisely by providing an overview of the history of the collection.

What are skip-the-line tickets?
For this tour, your tickets are pre-purchased which allows you to skip the ticket office line upon arrival at the museum. You may still have to wait in a security line or in a line to have your pre-purchased ticket scanned.   


Do we buy children's passes? 
We only buy adult tickets for our Uffizi tours because people with reduced tickets have to wait in an extra line and show their ID. In order to save time, we purchase skip-the-line standard tickets so families may enter as quickly as possible. 

There are 10 in my group but your website won't allow me to include more than 9 participants. Can't you make an exception?
No, unfortunately, due to venue reservation restrictions, we cannot accommodate groups larger than 9 people. If your group is larger, we recommend you split into multiple groups.

Kate was great on every level- art loving adult and tired spaced out kid!
Wonderful- knowledgeable, approachable, great with kids and adults alike
Christiane was wonderful - our 8 year old daughter was engaged for the duration of the tour and despite the breadth and complexity of what we covered, she left with a curiosity for understanding the stories told by the artworks and an elementary understanding of the importance of art in history. Can’t recommend this tour with Christiane more highly - a real highlight of our visit to Florence.
