We brought our tickets in advance and arrived at the gallery just before 9am and the general ticket queue was already quite long. Would definately recommend buying your tickets in advance.

If you were to look at every picture you could be there for the whole day, even just looking at the main paintings took us just over 3 hours! be prepared for all the guided tours, there is at least one going on in every room.

Also you cannot take pictures.

Wow it was so awesome and so inspiring. To see all the ordinal paintings by all the Masters was a truly beautiful experience. Go a must see for yourself. Again buy tickets online before to avoid the lines.

I went to the Uffizi with one goal to see the Venus of Urbino. I had spent 4 months in college studying the painting for an art history course. However, the painting was moved to Venice for a special Manet exhibit. Needless to say I was disappointed. Needless to say I was disappointed. However, that disappointment was washed away by the site of the birth of Venus. This museum has an incredible collection of Boticellis. Yes...it was crowded. Yes...the air conditioner seemed to be broken. Yet the art was well worth any uncomfort!

One of my favorite museums in the world. Probably my fifth time here and it still dazzles. A must. Worth 3-5 hours of your time.

Cannot praise the paintings enough [of course] but the gallery is hard work - pace yourself, do some homework first and have a plan.
