This gallery houses some recognisable works of art I remember learning about in school and also one or two from da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Get the audio guide, as it takes you through the development of art from the 1300s through to the 19th century.
Note that the Uffizi does not allow you to take liquids into the gallery. It does allow you to store your bags though, so you don't have to walk around the gallery with a backpack all day!
Phone ahead to reserve tickets though - the lines were manic! Prices were €6.50 without reservation, or €10.50 with reservation. However, I'd suggest trying your luck on the weekend mornings - the museums generally seem a lot quieter then.
