Special Uffizi Gallery Tour: Gods, Heroes and Emperors

The Uffizi Gallery is now famous throughout the world for its very important collections of paintings that include undisputed masterpieces of Italian and European art. For centuries, however, until the end of the eighteenth century, the Florentine museum was known as the 'Gallery of the Statues'. The ancient sculptures of the Uffizi were the focus of the collections and were long admired by visitors who came from all over the world.

The Uffizi guided tour that I propose aims to rediscover this very important sculptural heritage still housed in the Gallery.

The ancient sculptures will provide the opportunity to tell the story of characters and episodes of Greek mythology. The incredible series of busts of emperors collected by the Medici will immerse us in the history of the Roman Empire. We will know the labors of Hercules, we will admire the perfection of the Canon of Polykleitos in front of the statue of the Doryphoros, we will discover the sleeping Ariadne and the heroic death of Laocoon who tried in vain to save the city of Troy besieged by the Achaeans …

And certainly we will not neglect the Uffizi rooms dedicated to the greatest Renaissance painters

such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Caravaggio. Even painting, on the other hand, has often drawn inspiration from mythology! Botticelli's Primavera, the Venus of Urbino by Titian, Medusa and Bacchus by Caravaggio are just some of the magnificent paintings that you can admire during this particular guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery.
