The Uffizi Gallery houses some of the most famous artworks in the world. Artists' like Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bellini, Raphael, Durer, Botticelli and more adorn the gallery walls. The architecture itself is a work of art and depicts and old history of the reign in Florence by the de' Medici family. The views of the Ponte Vecchio and Fume Arno... More

I was not able to visit the museum today, entirely my own fault (don't feel too bad, we made a spur of the moment stop in Florence), but word to the wise: you MUST purchase your tickets ahead of time during the summer tourist months. Either that or go first thing in the morning. The on-site ticket purchasing is just... More

We decided to book online and this ws a very good idea. You collect your ticket from door 3 then cross over to door 1 where you gain immediate entry. We decided against a guided tour as they can sometimes be a bit rushed, and took a leisurely 5 hr stroll (including lunch at the roof cafe) through the gallery.... More

Book in advance and get a guide as there is just so much to see, so many great artists. We took a tour group and avoided the long queues- well worth the expense. Our guide was excellent and showed us details we would never have seen on our own. Must do!

So interesting and beautiful. A must on your trip to Florence but I definitely recommend a guided tour to understand the art.

The Uffizi is packed with visitors and it is often difficult to see, let alone appreciate the great art. We booked the earliest ticket and picked it up the day before. We were the a few minutes before they opened and were among the first in. We had a great experience, ahead of the masses of tour groups. It was... More

Must have, of course - but do not expect a Prado, a Louvre or a Kunsthistorisches M in Vienna. The building itself has a very special atmosphere.

A must go if you are in Florence! Also try to book the Vasari Corridor which is within the Uffizi to allow yourself to immerse in the atmosphere as though you are in 14th Century while walking along the Vecchio Bridge.

Definitely one of the great museums of the world. Like the others, TOO many pieces to view at one time and to really study. We are not typical museum dwellers but really enjoyed this visit. We had a guide which helped in understanding the artists and the differences in their style as well as similarities. Would like to visit again... More
