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.

Amazing place brought to life by an amazing guide.

Get Your Guide runs a tight ship. On time, clear instructions, great guides. We had Gayla for The Uffizi Gallery and she was amazing - full of energy, humor, and quite a background in the history and of the renaissance. We all loved it!

Amazing art collection with huge crowd, advice for a guide

We took this tour May 2nd, 11 am, in spanish. There were many groups as well as people purchasing their tockets by themselves. Skip the line and take the tour with a guide will save you a lot of time. Our tour guide was excellent as she explained the concept of the gallery, related it to history and also explained the intentions and symbols behind every important painting at the gallery. You will be astonished to see the Botticelli s and many more like some of Da Vinci s work. You will not regret about taking the tour. Besides all that the guide is quite friendly and will answer any questions you might have.

This was well worth the price; a terrific learning experience.

Our tour guide (Julia) was exceptional. I had studied art in Florence for 6 months, and I learned more from her in 6 hours than during my studies. She was incredibly knowledgeable- I highly recommend this tour. I usually do not fill these surveys out, but given how satisfied I was with the tour, I felt an obligation to submit a review. We did the full day walking tour - Uffizi, Santa Croce and the Accademia. Even my teenagers thought it was great.

I learned a lot during this visit - great tour!

Julia was a great guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of Florence. Even if the Uffizi was pretty crowded at the time of the visit, she made the tour very pleasant and I felt I learned a great deal about both history and art. Florence is a magical city and the Uffizi is really worth a visit if you want to learn more about this place. Even though I did not find the meeting point immediately, I called and a member of the staff helped me right away. So it was overall a very positive experience.

So easy to get in and the gallery is magnificent

It is huge we were there for well over four hours and could have spent much more time. Plan the galleries you really want to visit. The rooftop cafe is a good place to take a break.
