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.
