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.

Unquestionably the best way to experience the Uffizi Gallery

Our guide, Irina, was an artist and had exceptional knowledge of art history and the development of styles/periods. Waiting time was minimal and our entire tour was efficiently executed. The guide kept us together and led us through the gallery, focusing on strategic works that demonstrated the period or specifically important artists. Her delivery was passionate and her knowledge exceptional. If it wasn't for her guidance, we could easily have spent an entire day in the gallery and learnt very little. This definitely the best way to visit the Uffizi Gallery.

Laura went above and beyond as our tour guide!

This was my 4th GetYourGuide tour and all were very good. However, in this case, Laura provided an exceptional experience which really stood out. She was very passionate and knowledgeable. My wife (honeymoon) does not usually appreciate art or history, but she was hooked throughout the entire tour. Absolutely would recommend, just for the art, but if you get Laura you are in for a special treat.

Excellent tour, not only art highlights but the history of Florence1

Julia was an amazing guide. She was able to put everything together-- the art, the history, and why the Uffizi is such a special place. One can easily buy a ticket and go look at the art, but we gained such an appreciation for the art - the technical aspects, it's political message, and why the artist themselves were so special. Thank you -- I can't say enough good about this tour!

An amazing gallery - but too many tourists

We were met outside. Our guide was knowledgeable, and spoke farily good English. To say the gallery is huge is an understatement. Frankly, I think we were just overwhelmed by both the magnificence of the art work, and the hordes of tourists.

Buy your ticket to the Uffizi ahead of time

Having a reservation to the Uffizi made our entrance easy. Even with a reserved entrance time there is still a bit of a wait but well worth it. After all, you are waiting to see the greatest collection of Renaissance artwork in the world.
