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

Very interesting tour and so great to skip long queues

Our guide Christina was very knowledgeable and kept the tour moving very well through gallery while sharing lots of interesting stories on some of the paintings and sculptures. A very worthwhile thing to do as the queues were very long and then we also had the advantage of having a pleasant tour with lots of interesting anecdotes - highly recommend.

Skip the Line: Michelangelo's David Guided Tour Reviewed by Sheenagh, 10/08/2017

Great overview of the evolution of Renaissance Art.

If you only have a limited amount of time to see the Uffizi I think this tour is well worth. In 2 hours our guide Sylvia gave shared with our group the development of Renaissance from Giotti to Da Vinci, a brief history of Medici and Art class 101. Fantastic!

A thorough and interesting insight into florence city and the art!

Leonardo was very friendly and thorough throughout the whole tour. He gave a great perspective on the paintings and artists. While waiting in the line to go through security before entering the gallery, he was telling us about Florence city and the history behind the culture etc, which was extremely interesting and made the queue fun!

Florence Uffizi Gallery Skip the Line Guided Tour Reviewed by Aisling, 09/25/2017

Sonia was our guide, she made our tour fantastic.

Sonia covered all the must see art of the museum and answered all our questions.

Despite crowds, pictures could be appreciated without discomfort.

To have the time to consider and appreciate so many works with which you had been familiar all your life! Everyone wanted time to stand in the best position to use their camera but when finished they carefully moved aside to allow others to do the same and then stood as long as they wished to experience the picture before them. The views of the river and Palazzo Vecchio from the windows added to the visit. Make sure you return to the area in the evening - when we did so we were able to stand under the collonade and listen to a string quartet entertaining the passersby.
