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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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

Very informative tour of the Uffizi museum!

We enjoyed an excellent tour of the Uffizi museum. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the museum and was able to show us all of the highlights in our approximately 2 hour tour. As she mentioned, you could spend two days in the museum and not see everything, but this tour was a great overview. It was great having someone to provide background on the works instead of navigating on your own. Highly recommended and good value for the price.

Great guide. But I am STILL waiting for my refund of 96 euros

Great guide who really knew art history and made it interesting. However I am STILL waiting for my refund when the tour was double booked online. Very annoying that Get Your Guide has now honoured this as was promised.

Ultimate Uffizi: 2-Hour Priority Entrance Tour Reviewed by Anne, 11/27/2018

The Uffizi was truly something exceptional.

Highly recommended...I spent three hours wandering from one gallery to another...there is a nice coffee shop where you can sit and enjoy a drink and a pastry, rest a while then carry on.

Irina, the perfect guide for the Uffizi Galery

You are not allowed to take any bottles of water into the Uffizi. You go through an airport-like security hall where you must place all bags, etc. into a tray and then walk through the metal detector. If your rucksack is big, it must be left in a secure place in the hall. You must keep your ticket as you need to show it immediately after going though security, again when you reach the 1st floor and when you leave, so don’t lose it. If you are part of a guided tour party, you are given small audio devices to wear with an ear piece so you can hear your guide as they are not allowed to speak loudly. Our tour guide, Irina, (from Visit Europa Today Florence organised through GetYourGuide) was brilliant. She speaks excellent English and was extremely knowledgeable and brought to life the paintings we viewed with added anecdotes and interesting facts along the way. I left with a vastly improved education in Renaissance art and highly recommend Irina and a visit to the Uffizi gallery.
