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.

Fun, informative, and and interesting tour!
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!

Angelo is the guy you want!

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.

Semi-Private Uffizi Gallery Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line
An excellent tour of the major works of the Uffizzi with a guide who not only stressed the artistic components of the work but also gave some insight to the personalities of the subjects and the artists which made our learning particularly pleasurable. Unfortunately, the sound system was not up to par and the distortions made our guide's comments difficult to hear at times. Better earpieces (those that do not fit in the ears) would have made a major improvement.

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.

It was a very worthwhile experience and didn’t have to stand in the queue. The only issue was to find the the company rep to collect the tickets because there were a lot of construction works going on and some places were boarded up. Definitely advise-able to book in advance to avoid the long queues.

Excellent tour! Leonardo was an excellent guide and shared his knowledge of history and art. The tour gave me the high points of the Uffizi and a great timeline of art, history and politics. While it would take days to cover the whole museum this gave me what i needed. If you didn't study art history and maybe slept through your history classes, have no fear, this tour is wonderful
