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
It was a real experience to see the masterpieces, especially those of the Renaissance. With prebooking we could skip half of the line. However you still have to count with at least half an hour of standing in the line. Without the audio guide you are quite lost.
Definitely worth getting a timed entry ticket, we avoided a very long queue and the gallery was amazing. Highly recommended
Not the straight on Florence history tour, takes you through the lesser known streets with different stories. The guide Angelo A gave it everything he got. Not really for kids, unless you are okay with stories of prostitution with the Church's blessing, drugs, the favored method of Florentine execution (skinning alive), affairs and nazis. This is the Dark Side after all...
An excellent way to explore Florence and our guide Julia was the best. She knew the history, art and the culture of Florence. The bike tour took us streets and areas of Florence that is it normally seen by walking or vehicle tours.
As well as covering all of the main attractions in the walking tour, our guide Sam, really came into his own whilst showing us around the masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery. Any walking tour depends heavily on the quality of the guide and Sam was absolutely top notch. His knowledge and passion for the artwork. On display was both impressive and informative. I feel as if I'd read a dozen guide books that all made perfect sense as Sam went into articulate and well structured detail on the composition of the paintings and their place in the development of Renaissance art.
