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: Uffizi and Accademia small group hidden street walking tour
We enjoyed our 4 hour walking tour of Florence. Our guide Patricia was so knowledgeable about the art history of Florence pointing out lots of interesting architecture on our way to each museum. Once inside the Academia & Uffizi Patricia highlighted several pieces of art going deeper in detail for the story behind each piece. The tour gave us a deeper appreciation for the beauty of Florence!

Skip-the-Line to Uffizi & Accademia with Michelangelo's David - Small Group Tour
The tour was not what I expected but better. Although it was advertised as the Uffizi and Academie, it began with a walking tour of the city. It was very informative and I really enjoyed our tour guide. She was knowledgeable and fun.

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.
