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.

What people are saying about Uffizi Gallery

Lori was an excellent well informed guide

We really enjoyed our tour with Lori. She was an excellent tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about the city history and the artwork. It felt like having a tour with an academic historian rather than a tour guide.

Fascinating tour with a really entertaining and knowledgeable guide

We only booked this as a way of getting into the Uffizi as we'd failed to book online in time. We were kind of dreading it, as we don't really like organised tours, but ended up being so glad we had - despite still having to wait longer than expected to get in. Our guide, Lori, was exceptional. Her knowledge of the development of Renaissance art, it's artists, methods and meaning, gave us completely new insights. Most importantly, she avoided jargon, was amusing, accessible and wore her deep knowledge lightly.

Wonderful tour with charming and competent guide.

Getyourguide managed to organize tickets for the Uffizi although they were sold out. We had an incredibly interesting tour of about 100 Minutes focused on the very important oeuvres of the museum. Our guide Irina combined profund knowledge of history of Florentine art with entertaining stories and explanations. Definitely one of the best guided museum tours I ever had.

Very informative tour of the Uffizi museum!

We enjoyed an excellent tour of the Uffizi museum. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the museum and was able to show us all of the highlights in our approximately 2 hour tour. As she mentioned, you could spend two days in the museum and not see everything, but this tour was a great overview. It was great having someone to provide background on the works instead of navigating on your own. Highly recommended and good value for the price.
