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 informed and caring guide but poor acoustics

The guide was very informed and talked at a good pace. Her voice was a bit quiet, so I would really recommend that she wear a headset so that she speaks right into the microphone.

Enchanting and interesting. Great experience,!

Our guide Stefano was engaging and knowledgeable. The backstreet stories were fascinating and the gelato at the end was deliciousl. . Couldn't recommended this tour... Or guide... Highly enough. Thank you for a brilliant evening!

I appreciated the fact that we could get tickets!

A huge gallery and space. We spent about two hours there which wasn't close to being long enough.

This amazing Art Gallery is a mustsee for those traveling to Florence.

No trip would be complete without an Uffizi tour. This is a huge museum and will take some time to walk through. The lines for this museum are long, even early in the morning. I would suggest you commit a morning or afternoon of your visit to museum and purchase your ticket ahead of time from GetYourGuide. You don’t want to spend your time standing in a 3 hour line waiting to buy an entry ticket when you can have a prepurchase ticket that gets you in within 10 min. You will go through a security checkpoint where all bags are inspected and your pockets emptied. If you have some knowledge of art and a basic appreciation, plan on 3 hours for this tour. If art is your life, plan on all day. Start on the third floor and work your way down. This will follow the progression of time from the oldest work to the newest. Look at the building, it is also a work of art. Some rooms will be crowded. Take pictures of the explanation signage so you can later remember the piece of artwork.

Excellent guide who was very informative.

With so much noise in the streets it makes such a difference having the ear piece and box. Our guide's observations of paintings and sculptures in the Uffizi were excellent.
