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
Alla was our guide and she was lovely! She was very knowledgeable about the styles, techniques and features of the artworks moving through time. The tour was paced well with time for photos and questions. She was able to tell us specific details about the art movements and paintings themselves. The tour was small (9 people) so you were able to follow and keep up. Would highly recommend! It was a little more expensive than other tours but worth it.
So much gorgeous art, and the layout makes it really easy to see everything. Great views of the city and the river from the windows in the corridor too. Start at the top floor and make your way to the one below. The cafe on the rooftop is great too, you can stand inside if you're in a hurry or sit outside in the lovely terrace.
Slight confusion as to where to pick up the ticket but it was simple enough - make sure you don't go too early to collect as you'll end up in another queue! Perhaps it wasn't so busy (I went on Sunday around midday) but I walked straight through, slight queue to collect the audioguide but that wasn't too bad either.
This was an interesting and casual way to view a lot of the artwork in the Uffizzi Gallery ~ which is an overwhelming Museum! It was great to be able to go at one’s own pace in viewing the many stunning works of such important artists.
Irina was amazing. Her knowledge of renaissance art and the history of Firenze was astounding. Learned so much about the culture, religion and history of the Medicis and Firenze. A wonderful experience and can’t recommend enough.
