Step into the beating heart of the Renaissance

“To see Naple and die” is a worldwide known expression but one should be warned that visiting the Uffizi Gallery is not without risks, as your journey takes you in the different rooms of the Tuscan Art Gallery you may start feeling slightly disoriented, heart beating like a drum and eventually fainting in front of so many artistic wonders. This state is known as the “Stendahl’s Syndrome” after the French writer described his feelings of being overcome with profound emotion when admiring the indescribable beauty of art masterpieces in Florence. For any visitors of the Uffizi gallery, this “disease” is hard to turn a blind eye to.

For one hour of live online tour, our local Florentine guide will introduce you to the wonders of this museum. After spending years studying the history and culture of this magnificent city, as well as guiding visitors through its most renowned museums and landmarks it is with a true talent for storytelling, that your guide will unveil to you the many artworks of the gallery from one room to the other. As they broadcast this live tour from their home a few miles from the museum itself, immerse yourself and relive the artistic creation process, learn about the available techniques and the specific issues they had to overcome to create “perfection”. Learn about those wealthy benefactors in the shadow or the light that commissioned artwork for decades to strengthen their image, display their wealth or gain influence.
