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.

A stunning and beautiful city with everything in walking distance

One of the best city's to visit with lovely caring people. A must go to again city for lovers or site seeing.

Informative and entertaining, perfectly guided tour.

The tour was just perfect as it was. We went to Uffizi during the peak of the day so we had to wait a lot to enter into the building but it was not the company’s fault. The guide was really nice and her English was just awesome. She gave her best to pass all the information about the many attractions wee could see in the gallery, focusing on the most famous paintings. The tour was really well organized, absolutely worth participating.

An interesting and educational experience

The day we booked this activity there was a strike inside the Uffizi that delayed our fast-entrance option by 3 hours. There was really nothing to be done other than wait... our guide, Ricardo, made everything in his power to made us feel comfortable and entertained. Once inside the museum, he was incredibly knowledgeable. We will do this again in a heartbeat!

Amazing tour. We can highly recommend it!!

- Irina is a fantastic guide (very knowledgeable, experienced with the venue, friendly, and entertaining) - Tour was well organized (started on time, free bottle of water, easy meeting point) Really great experience!!
