Welcome to the birthplace of the Renaissance. I would highly recommend a guided experience. There is just too much to see and understand without expert advice

So much better to go at an "off" time -- we made it our first stop in Florence after arriving at 4pm. 2 hours at the end of the day beats going in the morning, BY FAR. No lines -- plenty of space to see what you want and to walk by and come back to whatever is crowded. The art is amazing... and the palace, too. Don't skip it!

If your not an art fanatic, the Uffizi can be like a greatest hits record for European art. Three hours and you have seen a bulk of the most famous art ever created.

If you are a serious art lover, it will probably take you three days to cover the vast expanse of treasures in this museum. It's truly mind boggling how much art is contained in this building.

Naturally, you will see the famous masters, from Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo etc to other European greats. There is a new section in the basement with 18th and 19th century European artists (very well displayed). Disappointing is the Caravaggio display - darker even than his paintings, and loveless.
