5 unmissable artworks at the Uffizi Gallery

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.

Virgin and Child with Saint Anne (Room 7)

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.

Birth of Venus (Room 10)

Perhaps the Uffizi's most famous work, Botticelli's masterpiece depicts the emergence of Venus from the sea into sensuous adulthood.

Adoration of the Magi (Room 15)

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!

Madonna of the Harpies (Room 26)

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.

Bacchus (First floor, Room 4)

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.

What People Are Saying About Uffizi Gallery

Never enough time to see this awesome gallery.

Uffizi is amazing. I would like to move in for a few weeks and study it in depth

It was a nice way to learn a little about the area.

We had a lovely morning cycling about, it was very easy cycling, we didn't cover much distance, it nice to learn a bit about the buildings etc. Had a few stops to try small things to eat, nice lady tour guide, felt very comfortable with her and the small group we were with.

Avoid the museum’s purchase line but at a price

For a small premium (unknown to me upon online purchase), we only waited about 10 minutes at gate 2 rather than doing the long line to purchase tickets onsight. Still had to queue again to actually get into the museum with everyone one else. Purchase tickets ahead of time but, if you’re like me and stuck without tickets on the day you want to visit, this offer was very convenient and worth the small extra cost.

Very grateful as most other sites said that the tickets were sold out.

I purchased the tickets a couple of hours before I needed to use them. Almost all other sites stated that the tickets were sold out. I was thrilled to be able to visit the Uffizi Museum at short notice because of GetYourGuide. The tickets allowed us to enter the museum without having to wait in long queues. The only hitch was that when I purchased the tickets the description said that it was tickets with audio guides and the museum personnel said that the tickets were without audio guides. They decided to call GetYourGuide but took so long that we just went in and saw the museum without the audio guides.

Francesco was an excellent guide. Your staff were really great'

Your staff were very helpful as I had difficulty in finding the departure point. It was the highlight of my stay in Florence. Rosemary
