“THE must see in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

MAKE SURE YOU GET TICKETS IN ADVANCE !!! Otherwise you will spend hours waiting in the queue. The museum is certainly worth waiting in line, but why do it if you can get the tickets with the hour of your choice for the visit over the Internet. One of the premier museums of the world just about summs it.

“Boggle!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is such an extensive venue of interesting and beautiful stuff that after 2 hours I found myself skipping too quickly past exhibits that would otherwise have occupied me for longer. My brain simply shut down! Some call it Stendahl's Syndrome; a friend of mine calls it "boggle" - hence the title!

“The Rejuvenated & Expanded Uffizi calls for a good guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Uffizi is in the middle of an expansion. The already large art gallery in Florence is also getting a face lift, and it is best to visit it as almost anywhere you go in Italy with an organized tour and a contracted high quality guide that could help immerse you into the art of the Renaissance. Here you can sit and admire to your heart's content paintings by Botticelli, some by Caravaggio, and though the museum book store has illustrated books with all the important works, they do not make up for seeing them close up in person. A must see for art lovers.

“take your time in visiting uffizi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

the museum was very big. the long queue in the entrance and long walk in the gallery = so worth it. it is recommended to have a guided tour or buy the guidebook so that you can plan how you'll go around this huge gallery :) don't leave florence without visiting uffizi gallery
