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
This was an amazing tour. Renata was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Though we were disappointed that the Accademia was closed, she more than made up for it with the city tour and the Uffizi!

The Uffizi tour was great. We went at our own pace. I would have liked to have a headset to describe things but it was self explained.

Uffizi Gallery Tour with a professional guide
We got an excellent, friendlly and competent Uffizi Gallery tour by Sabina Avuri even in German. She knows a lot and is living in the region. She was early at the agreed time and place and we could start immediately and got a "private tour" for we had the luck that nobody else tokk part at this time.

Broadening my understanding of Art

Skip the line: Uffizi Gallery tour
I came to this museum to see the Caravaggio, but with the guide I learned so much about the development of prespective in medieval art and the movement from flat 2-D depictions of christianity to the beautiful Raphael era. As an art enthusiast I can saw this tour change they way I see art, my understanding of techniques and the historical relevance. The enthusiasm and knowledge of the guide was superior and I am so thankful to have taken this tour.

Most tour guides follow a certain script. As long as they are following that script, they are fine. But if you veer off the beaten track, and ask too many questions, they will get stuck. This tour was not like that at all. The guide was not only able to answer all our many questions; he was eager to do so. And he seemed to know a lot about everything in the museum, which considering the number of objects there is a truly amazing achievement. It was an astounding tour!

Skip-the-Line to Uffizi & Accademia with Michelangelo's David - Small Group Tour
Even in low season and with the coronavirus concerns keeping crowds lower than normal, I highly recommend the skip-the-line-tours. This was a terrific introduction to two of the most important museums in Italy. Our guide, Angelo Alterio, was splendid. He was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, attentive and highly personable. I highly recommend the tour and Angelo.

Florence Private Full-Day Tour with Uffizi and Accademia Gallery
well worth the price. And booking this enabled us to avoid the long lines. Good guide. For me, Academia was more interesting than the Uffizi, but both were great.

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.
