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

We really enjoyed our visit to both galleries - our guide was fantasti

We loved this trip. Well worth paying extra to queue skip. Our guide was so knowledgable and brought every exhibit alive with wonderful narrative. Loved being in a small group - 6 as it is more manageable.

The best tour we have ever been on! Ever!

Julia was our guide and she was phenomenal! Her knowledge was incredibly impressive. She taught us so much, tied everything together, and gave us the details and the big picture. I can't believe how much we learned from her. We had taken a Vatican tour a couple of days prior and we thought our tour guide was great. And she was good. But she didn't even touch Julia's abilities. If you can get Julia as your guide you really should. She's the best! As for the Uffizi, it was amazing and definitely worth seeing. The city tour was also awesome. We went to the Basilica of Santa Croce and wow, what was in there to see was incredible. I won't give any spoilers away but we are so glad Julia took us there. We learned a ton and it was all very interesting. This tour was fabulous!

The guide Francesca made the pictures and the painters become alive!

The uffizi museum was very nice, a bit too crowdy, but well worth the visit. Our fantastic guide, Francesca, was very knowledgeable, but also fun to listen to. She could answer all questions, andmade all the fantasti paintings and the artists come into live for us. The only problem was to find the office of ”get your guide” where we should meet. But after finding that, everything went smooth. Thanks!

Lori was an excellent well informed guide

We really enjoyed our tour with Lori. She was an excellent tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about the city history and the artwork. It felt like having a tour with an academic historian rather than a tour guide.
