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
Ticket queues are very long in summer and we were so pleased to have a timed entry and walk past the queue. The ticket did not include an audio guide - which is worth getting!
So glad that we signed up for this tour and had Hayko as our guide. We learned so much in a two hour period that we never could have known on our own. Hayko was very knowledgeable and presented the history in an interesting and fun manner. Highly recommend.
We spent several hours happily cycling around Florence and listening to Fabio tell us about the city, give some dinner recommendations and be genuinely interested in speaking to everyone in the group. Had we had longer in Florence we would definitely have done several other tours!
Thank you Alla for this beautiful day. You allowed us to walk back in time into Florence's secrets. It was my 50Th birthday and I had a wonderful time!
This was brilliant. We had originally booked for 3pm but they asked if we wanted to postpone until 9pm because it was 40 degrees outside - this was a great idea and meant that we had a lovely evening ride. Raffael was a fabulous guide - super knowledgeable and really fun. Our only regret was that we did this at the end of our stay rather than the beginning as he gave us so many fabulous recommendations for sights to visit and restaurants!
