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

You must see Uffizi once you go to Firenze

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.

Skipped the long queue and the Uffizi is amazing

Definitely worth getting a timed entry ticket, we avoided a very long queue and the gallery was amazing. Highly recommended

Florence: Timed Entrance Ticket to the Uffizi Gallery Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 06/17/2017

Different kind of tour. Thoroughly enjoyed

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...

Beautiful, scenic and cultural experience through the str

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.

An interesting tour from an inspirational guide.

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.
