I can't claim to be educated in art but this leaves you speechless. We booked through the offical site and picked up tickets 10 minutes before and therefore had no queuing. It is very well organised and you have enough time to explore these treasured works of art. I loved Botticellos The Birth of Venus, said to be modelled on... More

So many famous paintings gathered in this gallery. You need at least 2 hours just to see the important works of Bottichelli, Raphael, Caravaggio and Tiziano!

The Uffizi has so much art it is overwhelming. Also when we visited the crowds were astronomical. It took ages to get in and then I felt like I was in a sea of moving tourists. The whole experience left me a little dazed and now I struggle to remember the highlights.

The amount and variety of art in this museum is extraordinary. Be sure to book a tour in advance. Your entry will be expedited and you'll learn more about the art, artists and history. We had an outstanding guide through Avventure Bellissime.

As the title speaks for itself. Not a museum person, neither was i a christian but the art-work in the gallery were amazing. They aroused my curiosity for the history of italian art and stories of christianity.

It's amazing to see works like Bottichelli's Primavera or the Birth of Venus from so close...It's like you go back to those times...and the view from the window helps too. Just make sure to purchase tickets from the internet to skip the lines. I strongly recommend downloading some free tour.

Buy tickets in advance then you don't have to queue and get the audio guide. Massive gallery with thousands of paintings and sculptures. The famous Botticelli's Venus and an unusual Michaelangelo painting. The Giotto I wanted to see was not on view today but there was some of his work to drool over. Lovely cafe on the roof half way...

This is a wonderful museum, though make sure you have a ticket or reservation (by phone is easiest) to avoid the long lines in high season. The art is phenomenal. Probably best to go early or late in the day. Take a break and have a coffee, snack or glass of wine at the cafeteria/restaurant, which has a lovely terrace... More

Definitely book your tickets in advance and buy the audio tour. The museum is quite large and the audio tour explains each room and gives more info on significant pieces.

I think it should be forbidden to take cameras/iphones/ipads, any kind of electronics in a museum. People pile up in front of the major pieces, clicking desperately just to make a "check" on the list and go to next, mostly without even knowing what masterpiece is that! With it, it is quite difficult just to stand and appreciate the art,... More
