This three-hour walking tour of the Uffizi Gallery literally starts from the very bottom by visiting the foundations of the palace that was built on an earlier structure, namely the Church of San Pier Schieraggio.
Through the Scalone Vasariano we will reach the second corridor where the tour properly begins with a visit to the adjacent rooms. The works are arranged in chronological order, so you will have the chance to admire the many masterpieces from the end of the 1200s to 1600s.

There is a time slot when the ticket is booked to enter the Uffizi, so you must be on time and respect the time frame.
