A visit inside the Uffizi Gallery is the very best chance to enjoy the masterpieces collected over the centuries by the Medici family in Florence.
Hundreds of paintings are actually displayed into the 16th U-shaped building designed by Giorgio Vasari for the Grand Duke Cosimo I to house the Offices of the Government.
When the last member of the dinasty, Anna Maria Luisa de'Medici, died in 1743, this gorgeous collection was entirely donated to the city.
A fascinating journey to understand the evolution of the Florentine and Italian painting through the ages as well as the deep meaning of the Renaissance innovation.
We will look at some of the most famous art work in the world, such as "La Primavera" (the Spring) and "La nascita di Venere" (the Birth of Venus) by Sandro Botticelli, the "Annunciazione" (the Annunciation) by Leonardo da Vinci and the "Tondo Doni" (the Doni's tondo) by Michelangelo and other works by Giotto, Raffaello and Caravaggio.
