Top sights in Florence
The Uffizi Gallery is one of Florence's oldest and most popular museums, yet still vast enough to challenge even the most ravenous art lover. Our advice? Quality over quantity! Here's a selection of the best paintings to help you decide what to see.
Masaccio's mastery of color and dimension made him the first great painter of the Early Renaissance. His Virgin is juxtaposed with Gothic angels probably painted by Masolino.
Perhaps the Uffizi's most famous work, Botticelli's masterpiece depicts the emergence of Venus from the sea into sensuous adulthood.
This unfinished piece by Leonardo da Vinci may not be his best, but it helps unravel the great artist's method. It's certainly one of the most interesting!
Andrea del Sarto is one of the High Renaissance's unsung heroes. Room 26 lets you compare his bold, imposing works to those of his more famous contemporary, Raphael.
Caravaggio's use of shadow was unrivalled in his time. In one of his less dramatic works, however, he beautifully captures flawed humanity in his portrayal of the Roman God of wine.
The Uffizi Gallery's opening hours are 8:15AM - 6:50PM from Tuesday to Sunday. The museum is closed on January 1st, May 1st, December 25th, and Mondays.
If you're planning to fit the Uffizi Gallery into a broader itinerary for the day, you could cover the highlights in about three hours. Consider allowing twice that amount if you're a bona fide art buff, or simply want to make the most of your ticket!

What people are saying about Uffizi Gallery
I was alone and haven’t traveled outside the USA before. I don’t speak Italian. Getting into the museum with the prepaid system was quick and simple.
We had great experience, easy to book and rescheduled. Our guide Ana was exceptional, would recommend to everyone
The queues were long and it was a hot day. We churned around, dreading the security checks. Once things got started, they really moved along. The guide was quite charming. She made sure to keep us corralled and displayed a nice balance of levity with real learning. It was certainly worth it.
Without this pre-paid tour, we would not have gotten in to see the museum. And with Julia as our tour-guide, we got a very substantial education in the history of Italian art and culture. Exceeded expectations in every way! Julia has a PhD in art history and is an exceptionally good and enthusiastic teacher. Highly recommend this!
Well worth the money to have an experienced guide explain not only about the works in the Uffizi, but more generally about Florence itself. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommend this tour be considered when visiting th Uffizi. Special thanks to our tour guide Evana.
