The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most famous museums in the world, and it is housed in the former “uffizi” or “offices” of the Medici Family.
The Uffizi Gallery is one of Florence's oldest and most popular museums, yet still vast enough to challenge even the most ravenous art lover. Our advice? Quality over quantity! Here's a selection of the best paintings to help you decide what to see.
Masaccio's mastery of color and dimension made him the first great painter of the Early Renaissance. His Virgin is juxtaposed with Gothic angels probably painted by Masolino.
Perhaps the Uffizi's most famous work, Botticelli's masterpiece depicts the emergence of Venus from the sea into sensuous adulthood.
This unfinished piece by Leonardo da Vinci may not be his best, but it helps unravel the great artist's method. It's certainly one of the most interesting!
Andrea del Sarto is one of the High Renaissance's unsung heroes. Room 26 lets you compare his bold, imposing works to those of his more famous contemporary, Raphael.
Caravaggio's use of shadow was unrivalled in his time. In one of his less dramatic works, however, he beautifully captures flawed humanity in his portrayal of the Roman God of wine.
The Uffizi Gallery's opening hours are 8:15AM - 6:50PM from Tuesday to Sunday. The museum is closed on January 1st, May 1st, December 25th, and Mondays.
If you're planning to fit the Uffizi Gallery into a broader itinerary for the day, you could cover the highlights in about three hours. Consider allowing twice that amount if you're a bona fide art buff, or simply want to make the most of your ticket!

What People Are Saying About Uffizi Gallery
Going to the Uffizi Gallery is a highlight of any trip to Florence. I don't want to waste a minute standing in line to get in there. However, So please be aware that it's best to print out your ticket. (I could have done so at my hotel.)
Our guide Beatriz was excellent. She were explaining in Spanish, which speak very well. Knowledgeable and very friendly. The ride was easy and with enjoyable views. I can do it again.
The advance reservation process was so simple and convenien! The time saved is very important as lines can be long, even off season! There are things that can be done to make your travel experience run smoother, thereby being less stressful. Booking your sightseeing tours in advance with GetYourGuide is one of those things. Highly recommended for every destination! Thank you GetYourGuide, and kudos to you for proving such excellent options!
This tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is on a first visit to Florence start out this way. You ride by a lot of the attractions so you get an idea of where things are and can decide what you want to revisit. You also receive a good historical overview so you know something about what you're going to see. As we continued on our visit of the city after the tour, we told many people about it and recommended that they try it. I've also already told friends in the U.S. about it.
Antonio was a great guide and teacher on how to work the Segway. It was lots of fun and we are in our late 60s!!!
