While attending Polimoda, I was fortunate enough to go to a private party (hosted by THE CLUB) that was being held on the roof of the Uffizi. Catered sushi, oysters and steak with a live performance by professional ballerinas. No joke ;)...anyways, it took me 6 months to finally visit the actual museum! The day before I left Florence, my... More

Free, and quick to get in with your Firenze card. Otherwise, you are doomed unless you have a reservation. We are not art buffs but spent 5 hours there and hardly saw any of the first floor exhibits. The audio guide is OK only, mainly it talks about when the art was made, who bought it when, etc. If you... More

If you plan on spending some time in Florence, it may be worth your while to get the Friends of the Uffizi card and that way you can go to the Uffizi as many times as you like and not wait too long in the line (since you'll be able to jump ahead of everyone waiting at the 2nd entrance).... More

I visited in October. The weather is still very nice and balmy down here. I did not book tickets in advance, just bought it in the small store across the Academia and didn't have to wait more than 30 mins in line before i entered. It was amazing to see all those paintings, specially Boticelli. I recommend going to Academia... More

I had not been here for many years & the first paintings I ever remember faling in love with were Botticellis' Birth of Venus & Primavera which I saw here with my Mother when I was about 5. So it was a real treat to go again & I do still love them. I am not a huge fan of... More

If you love art and why would you visit Florence if your not? Then you can' t miss the Uffizi. Too many masterpieces to mention. Give yourself a minimum three hours and reserve an entry time to avoid standing inline (starts as early as 7:45.

Do the advance ticket purchase on site maybe a good idea if you will spend a few days in Florence. They were less than ten people in the queue when we bought the ticket and you don't have to change to voucher to ticket. It costed 4€ more each ticket. Except the masterpieces which you will find interesting descriptions about... More

Four of us took a tour with Giuliani of Sunshine Tours. Her art and Art history background was like taking a college course. She not only explained the art and artist, but added a bit of history and humor. I have been to the Uffizi several times, but felt that, for the first time, I was able to find the... More

The Uffizi is overwhelming with its' thousands of pieces of art. To get a better appreciation of what you are seeing you should get a tour guide. We did it on our own and while it was impressive we would have gotten so much more out of it with some sort of tour or guide.

Do not understand the reviews given by some people. The Uffizi has some of the most important pieces of art history; it is no ordinary art museum. There are, of course, the greatest hits, but there are many other minor works worth a look. It can take a long time and even an art enthusiast, like myself, got tired after... More
