Even an art museum so large and rich as the Uffizi Gallery can easily become accessible for your kids thanks to a fun and interactive visit. Your guided tour of the most visited museum in Italy will be designed according to your kids’ age, providing them with special didactic materials in order to combine education and entertainment in an approachable and fun way. Museum tickets will be booked in advance in order to save time and give your family the best tour of the Uffizi Gallery! With this entrance priority, we will quickly reach the last floor of the museum where your kids will embark on an imagery time machine that will lead them to a fantastic journey through the history of painting!
During the tour, your kids will look for hidden details found in the main masterpieces of the museum with the help of your guide. We will start our Uffizi tour from the beautifully decorated Medieval panels depicting holy subjects which teach religious stories to people. Kids will play with Greek-Roman mythology characters in front of ‘The Spring’ and of ‘The Birth of Venus’ painted by Botticelli and they will learn a good deal about how and where Renaissance painters prepared their colors. During our visit at the Uffizi, children will notice how the style and the subjects changed with the passing of the centuries moving towards Michelangelo’s and Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpieces that were a turning point in the history of painting. Kids always love to see Medusa’s face painted by Caravaggio on a ‘shield’ and to hear the story behind her death as well as many funny anecdotes about the artists’ lives and their works.
