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 way to appreciate what you are seeing!
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!

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.

Uffizi Gallery Small Group Guided Tour
Rosa was an excellent guide! Entertaining and knowledgeable, she engaged the adults and the teenagers and a child in the group alike. We got insights into the art and it's evolution through the Renaissance period that we would never have captured without Rosa guiding us.
