From prot renaissance of giotto to caravaggio and botecelli , under one roof by the medicis, you need at least a week to appreciate art in its finest.

It is not waste a time to traveling there, the museum offers variety collections of well known pictures and sculptures. The museum building itself is also beautiful. The cafe terrace has a great view for relaxing and taking picture.

Fantastic gallery and very relaxing. We went later in the day, around 4ish as it shut at just before 7pm and seemed less busy. Plenty of time to browse around all areas. Make sure you buy your entrance tickets (8 euros) from the official website or on the door! Other websites etc charge double and more! Lovely atmosphere, helpful staff... More

This gallery is filled with masterpieces but I got tired of seeing the same style and topic in painting after painting. There is a good view of the ponte vecchio from the hallway.

The Uffizi Gallery has an amazing collection of Renaissance Art including paintings and sculptures by famous artists like da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli. There are over 1,000 works of art and it can be overwhelming. I would suggest a guided tour so a guide can focus you on all the important pieces. The building itself is a work of art.... More

It is such a tough gig to be a Uffizi! We went early as did 50k others We tried another visit later but they were there again. It is packed with people exactly like us wanting to all see the same things and trying to concentrate over the many many tour guides sharing their knowledge.

This is where all the amazing art is kept in Florence apart from the statue of David. We were able to see some of Leonardo's work, Botticelli's Venus in spring and birth of Venus as well as lots of other wonderful pieces of art. Definitely pre-book so you don't have to queue and if possible get an audio guide to... More

I was happy I booked tickets in advance after seeing the very long queue! There was still a queue to exchange my online reservation for tickets but it moved quickly and the second queue to get into the gallery at Door 1 also moved quickly. I downloaded a free audio guide to my iphone which had me starting on the... More

While interesting to see paintings from long ago and the transition it's always of the same subject. The church and the rich are all immortalized and the poor continue to meek out their living and hopefully having a bit of fun along the way No different from today

Italy is such a popular place, Florence even more so and even with specific timed reservations, the gallery is overcrowded, with people pushing and jostling to get that selfie in front of the 'Birth of Venus' and such. Seriously they should ban selfie sticks everywhere in the world, the most annoying invention ever. Why does everyone want a picture of... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
