After great success last year, the “Aperitivi ad Arte” or “cocktails with art” initiative returns to the Uffizi Gallery this summer.
Every Thursday evening from 7 to 10 pm you can visit the museum’s eight rooms of
sixteenth-century foreign painters and enjoy a drink on the Gallery’s
terrace, above the Loggia dei Lanzi, which hosted the Grandukes of the Medici family between the 16th and
18th centuries. Just like in the olden days, there will be music,
wonderful views of the city and the stunning scent of the surrounding
You have also the chance to visit the Red Rooms, the brand new room, just opened, dedicated to Italian 16th century
artists such as Raphael, Bronzino, Rosso Fiorentino, Allori, Vasari,
Andrea del Sarto and Pontormo.
