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.

Uffizi with a guide is the way to go!
It was bit confusing to understand the meeting point as I was new to this! The guide was absolutely phenomenal and it is definitely the way to go. He was knowledgeable and shared information that only someone who lived his job could do! I would definitely do this tour again!

Long long lines due to closure on Monday May 23rd - pity we were not advised of this in advance- also far too many visitors permitted in rooms at the same time - defo a health and safety issue

The museum is full of beautiful paintings and sculpture. I rented the audio guide, but it quit working about halfway through my visit. I strongly recommend signing up for a local guide for a visit to this museum.

We had the most fabulous guide helping us understand exactly what we were experiencing rather than being lost wandering. He gave our visit to the Uffuzi meaning, rather than ticking off another tourist to do. We were really impressed.

Our tour guide was terrific! Claudia was very passionate about her love of art history and told such interesting stories and perspectives about the pieces we stopped to see. I came imagine not doing one of these tours unless you are an art history buff. I learn so much from these tours!
