We cannot imagine any other way to visit the Uffizi than with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Angelo was both -- funny and smart. He told stories: about the art and the artists and the Medicis and we came away understanding key concepts. We learned a lot and smiled the entire way. Thank you for a wonderful tour.

Everything I wanted and so much more!

I am forever grateful to the staff at Art Viva! My whole life, I had always wanted to see the Statue of David, and I made my request, and it was granted! I wanted to be there at a time that was not crowded so that I could take unobstructed photographs and drink in the Statue as long as I could. Elisabeta was amazing and incredibly informed about the Statue and Florence. She shared with me wonderful places in Florence that I never would have considered. I had my time with the Statue, and I will be forever grateful to her and to Celeste who manages Art Viva. I was so impressed with having my own tour guide that I booked a small group tour for the following day through Art Viva and went to the Uffizi. Lovely as well. I will recommend this company over and over again. I owe a debt of gratitude. I felt so well taken care of and had my dream come true. I was so moved at being able to see the Statue of David completely unobstructed that I cried for hours afterward. Thank you and cheers!

We had an amazing time touring Florence and understood so much more due to the great guide we had with Artviva (Brenda). Being a local, she was passionate and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Florence. Definitely a 5/5!

Our tour guide was excellent. He provided a great many historical details about the monuments and building and the way of life in past centuries. He made the city past come alive in a very meaningful way. We could imagine Galileo or Michelangelo walking the same streets. Our 3 hours were over too soon. The guide was from Augtralia, but truly could relate Florence history in a fun way.

My family's ArtViva tours on Dec. 22, 2015 were everything we paid for. Brenda walked us around the city center pointing out the architecture, symbols, statues and great places to eat/hang out. Her in depth description of Michelangelo's David was so interesting, even my teens/young adults listened and remembered. Fantastic! In the afternoon, Hilde was our guide through the Uffizie Galleries. She gave an art history lesson that was forever memorable. Again, the teen/20's kids were listening. We got so much out these private tours. Well worth it!

Great tour, great guide

The tour was excellent. Our guide, Adrianne, was very knowledgeable and able to answer our many questions. She also went above and beyond her duty by helping keep our three-year-old entertained during the lunch so that we could enjoy ourselves without worry.

Wonderful tour, great guide

Our guide Adrianne was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the sites and was able to answer our many questions. She also helped watch our three-year-old during the lunch when he got bored, so that we could eat and enjoy ourselves.

Absolutely Fantastic!

My husband and I toured the Uffizi today with Claus, and we could not have been more impressed and inspired. His enthusiasm, knowledge and sense of humor made this tour and absolute joy! If you offer an Uffizi Part 2, we'll be first in line! Thank you, Claus! We could have stayed with you for an entire day - or a week for that matter!

Highlights of the private Genius of Michelangelo Tour include:

  • Find out how Lorenzo the Magnificent, one of the greatest art patrons of the Renaissance, carefully fostered the artistic genius of Michelangelo
  • Hear about the 15 year-old artist moving into the Medici family palace so Lorenzo could closely control the young Michelangelo's education - both artistic and social
  • See the artist's spectacular works in the Medici Chapels
  • Visit the home of Michelangelo and his patron Lorenzo the Magnificent
  • No Michelangelo tour is complete without seeing the David, one of his greatest masterpieces now in the Accademia Museum, where we have pre-reserved entry
  • Your private tour guide will also show you many more sites in Florence to accompany the fascinating history of this great master artist

The finer details of the private Genius of Michelangelo Tour:

Unavailable dates: Both the Accademia Gallery and Medici Chapels are closed on Mondays,  the 1st of May, Christmas & New Year and because the Medici Chapels is closed every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month. Since the first Sunday of each month, the museums entry is free and they do not accept reservations for those days, meaning we cannot guarantee entry times, this tour will also be unavailable on these Sundays. On the 3rd Sunday of each month, we could run the tour upon request.

Includes: entry to the Accademia museum and the Cappella Medicea
