Too much and too many of Renaissance paintings under one roof, lack of adequate directions or maps to follow was making us feel lost in this place with world's greatest of renaissance artworks. The first entry into the uffizi gallery was very confusing, and you are made to walk round and round for hours together, that you lose interest in... More

Magnificent in every way. Just too much but a feast for the art lover. I was gobsmacked. As many others have pointed out, plan what you want see and book online to prevent standing in the 3 hour line. Most tickets for municipal museums charge around €11.50 for admission and the Uffizi is no exception. There are usually ticket vendors... More

The museum is huge, like seriously. If I remember anything, its how long it took us to go round. There's no doubt at all that is full of works of art. However before going there you would needs to freshen up on your art somewhat, and guidebook or audioguide would be very helpful. The shear amount of art which has... More

As many have said, there is a lot to see and frankly after an hour and a half we needed a renaissance ourselves. But the pieces, settings and art is undoubtedly magnificent. One thing is the ticket system is highly confusing. We went to book online and were quoted 99 Eur for our family of 4 to go the next... More

No doubt this art museum is well worth the wait to get in. Be prepared to spend 2 to 4 hours once you get inside the museum. Be patient trying to get tickets or having to wait on line. That is the only negative to going to the Uffizi. But once you are inside, it is awesome.

Number 1 tip for this attraction: call or go on line and pre-order your tickets! Do not worry too much about working within a time constraint because it may take you 40 minutes on line anyway whether your booking is for 11am or 4pm. Next, pay attention to at what door you have to line up. There are queues everywhere... More

This is a great museum with MAGNIFICANT art work, truly one of the best. But to get in you need an advance ticket and then with that you wait at least an hour after our assigned time yo enter.

This gallery is massive, we spent over three hours in there, so much to see, so allow plenty of time. Speak to staff as it is quite confusing and go to booking office to pre book your tickets. There was a two hour wait when we got there so we booked for the next day and walked straight in. Limited... More

Before you decide to visit the Uffizi you need to decide what you want to see and how long to can spend there. It is almost impossible to take in the 1000 years of art contained in it at one go. So, you have made your decision. Then buy tickets in advance. They are more expensive than on the door... More
