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
Best way to see the Uffizi - skip the line with a tour guide showing the highlights of the gallery with the option of staying after the tour.
I highly recommend this ticket purchase! It makes for a quick, easy entry leaving plenty of time to enjoy the museum!
We loved it. Great to get to know a bit more about the city. Some more gruesome aspects. A great way to learn about the city but not get sun burnt! Loved the ice cream at the end also. A nice touch. Thank you
I highly recommend this tour! If all guides deliver as Leonardo did, they will be very pleased with the quality of this tour. We entered Accademia on time. The facts highlighted interesting points of the exhibits. Our guide gladly took our picture when asked! Being a native of Florence, his passion for the history of the city gleamed in his delivery. Bravo!
All issues related organisation it was very eficient and easy to follow. I will recomand for sure.
