Uffizi Galleries (Gallerie degli Uffizi)

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.

Great guide, careless tour company
Hearing explained the artistry and techniques of the great masters. The guide, Claudia, was fantasy. Our only regret was that the tour company failed to provide promised headphones which made hearing Claudia difficult.

Early Access: Guided Uffizi Gallery Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Angelo was our tour guide for the Uffizi. He was incredible. A tremendous wealth of knowledge and humor. He was just fantastic. If you can request Angelo, he was just great. Had a lot of insight, knowledge, and humor. He made the tour a truly memorable experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We traveled in December 2020 so the crowds weren't bad given the off season and ongoing Covid issues in Europe.

Claudia was a super guide!!! Extremely articulate and knowledgeable. Our group was very disappointed that the promised headphones/whisper system were not available for the tour. The museum was extremely busy and it was very difficult to hear!!

Semi-Private Uffizi Gallery Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line
Claudia was our guide and she was great! She concentrated on a lesser amount of pieces to discuss but really dug into the history and background that I found very interesting. You can start to piece together the relationships among the artists and their patrons that is really fascinating. She had funny anecdotes to insert, including about the beginnings of gelato and her great appreciation for that! It was a vey fun and interesting tour. I highly recommend it!

Must do if you want to see the works of the masters and learn about the history of the art and the city

Private Tour: Walking Tour plus The Uffizi guided Tour
We really enjoyed our time with Livia. We went in the afternoon, and were very lucky that the Uffizi was almost empty. Livia’s passion for art and knowledge of history was amazing. She took the time to explain the history and works of art and answered any questions we had. I’ve been to Florence three times, but learned more with Livia in 3 hours than in the last two trips.
