Piazza degli Uffizi, Florence, Tuscany, 50125

The Basics

Due to its immense popularity, the Uffizi Galleries is prone to long lines and extensive wait times—it's best to book skip-the-line admission to maximize your time. The gallery features a number of long, winding art-filled hallways, making it near-impossible to see everything on display, so small-group guided tours and self-guided audio tours are recommended to help you see the top pieces and give some context to the works you’re viewing. A visit is often combined with a stop at the nearby Accademia Gallery, which houses the Statue of David.

Florence Private Full-Day Tour with Uffizi and Accademia Gallery
Florence is a city full of history and art, and our guide Constanza was very helpful in making both come to life for us. Her in-depth knowledge on how to read paintings was impressive, and her passion for art truly infectious. She is personable, warm, and funny - a great companion for a wonderful day.

Early Access: Guided Uffizi Gallery Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Leonardo was waiting on the steps of the Uffizi promptly at 8:40am and he was easy to find. We skipped the line as promised! What an amazing guide into Florentine history, traditions, art and stories! He brought the museum to life for us and covered quite a bit of ground in our morning together. It was the perfect amount of time and conversation. Well done!!!

Skip the line: Uffizi and Accademia small group hidden street walking tour
We witnessed some famous paintings, sculptures and sites in this beautiful Renaissance city. The most memorable moment was seeing David by Michelangelo. He was bigger and more magnificent than we expected. We will never forget this moment in our lives. Our tour-guide Christina was clear on the headset provided, and very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour!

Guido is a passionate and animated guide. He had so much emotion in his story telling which my partner and i enjoyed very much. Highly recommend to get a guide at the Uffizi Gallery as it is so large and hard to navigate.

Uffizi Gallery - Semi Private Tour
Our guide was the key to this excellent visit. He was very clear and knowledgeable on the works of art. I have been on many guided tours and usually you can catch out the guide on some issue. Not in this case, he was superb, and I do not use that phrase lightly.

Combo Skip The Line - Uffizi Gallery And Accademia Gallery Tour
Our guide was excellent- there were just 2 of us on the tour so we got special time with her. She was easy to find to start the tour and got us through the crowded museum easily, but still spent adequate time explaining the paintings. She is very knowledgeable about the history of the artists and their work featured on our tour. She pointed out a lot of things we would not have seen on our own. Highly recommend this tour - its well worth your time and money.

Although art enthusiasts are bound to enjoy every piece, a few highlights include the Medici collection (gifted to the museum in the 18th century) and the Caravaggio works on the first floor. Other must-sees include Botticelli’sThe Birth of Venus; da Vinci's only completed panel painting,The Annunciation; and Titian'sVenus of Urbino. Together with Raphael’s portraits and Michelangelo’sTondo Doni, these works signify the height of the Italian Renaissance.
