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
Our guide was Viola. She was wonderful and her added information and stories brought the history and significance of what we saw to life. I will take this tour again when we return in the future.
The time you provide for this trio to Florence is either too long or too short. There is a disconnect between the amount of time needed for a hop on/hop off tour and what you provided. I ended up spending $100 more to buy a ticket back to Venice two hours earlier because, despite the expense, your tour does not provide a flexible ticket. Next time I will book everything myself. Thanks for that lesson, anyway.
What a wonderful way to discover the Uffizi and get the most out of your visit. I highly recommend this to anyone visinting the museum for the first time. Great stories!
Skip the Line guided tour to such places is always so worth it. You dont have to wait huge waiting lines and also you actually learn important stuff. I imagine myself there without a guide: It would be just a display of nice pieces of work. I would not have learned about anything.
Uffizi is amazing. I would like to move in for a few weeks and study it in depth
