The Uffizi Gallery - the oldest art museum in the world - contains paintings of staggering beauty, famous the world over. By focusing on particular masterpieces in the Gallery, this tour leads you easily through the Florentine Renaissance: how it happened, who the leading artists were, and why their work was so influential. But more than that, it shows how changes in both techniques and attitudes transformed art from a form of mysticism used for religious devotion, to an expression of pure sensual beauty.
This tour is designed to make art easily accessible to everyone, and whatever your level of interest, this friendly and relaxed tour will hold something for you.
