      • Advance tickets: You don't have to wait at the ticket office or at the museum entrance. An art historian will meet you with tickets in hand, allowing your private group to enter immediately.
      • Deeper understanding: Focusing on some of the museum's most famous works and often-overlooked gems, we'll discuss the evolution of Renaissance art from the technical innovations of Cimabue and Giotto to the masterpieces of Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci. You'll see how the Uffizi's history and even physical location by the Palazzo Vecchio fit into the larger context of Florentine society and the Medici family's patronage.
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known officially as "docents" (from the Latin for teacher), these M.A.- and Ph.D.-level art experts bring passion and insight to their subject, encouraging participation and discussion.
      • Your group, your tour: This private experience lets you tailor departure time and overall pace to your group's preferences. The tour usually runs about three hours, but even that's flexible.

      Meeting point

      Please meet your guide in front of the gelateria at #5 Via Vacchereccia. Via Vacchereccia is a small street that enters Piazza Signoria right next to Caffe Rivoire. The gelateria is across the street from Rivoire and has a sign for "Caffe Mokarico."
