Tues–Sun 8:15am–6:50pm
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.

Skip-the-Line to Uffizi & Accademia with Michelangelo's David - Small Group Tour
the lines for accademia are quite long so the skip the line option is very nice. the guide was very good. there was a nice walking tour and then a self tour of uffizi and accademia. the exhibits are well marked providing information so I'm not sure how much more a guide would add.

What Not To Miss at the Uffizi Galleries

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.
