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.

The longest renaisance walk I've even made!

Given Uffizi is the oldest gallery in the world; it was amazing to wonder the halls, rooms and passageways to discover the history, messages and visual representation of some of the most important master pieces ever made.

It was a nice museum, but the layers of extra fees were not nice.

This is a must see museum, don't miss the Rembrandts on the first floor. Beware of huge crowds around the Boticellis. The ticketing system is confusing and the people at the museum only understand the PRINTED version of the tickets. They are not helpful in interfacing with this agency.

Easy pace and fun morning despite high temps, kids all enjoyed it.

Really nice pace to the trip, kids of 11-14 all found it easy and not too hard work, getting round a very busy City centre. Even stopped for gelato!
