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!

Uffizi Gallery - Semi Private Tour
Wonderful tour guide. His English was perfect, I think his name was Enrique who was very found of the history of gallery. Took his time to explain paintings, halls and the background of the works of art before us. He was kind to make sure we all are there before he spoke. I would definitely seek to have this tour again if in town to another gallery.

Skip the line: Uffizi and Accademia small group hidden street walking tour
We totally enjoyed Rosa’s tour. As she is finishing her Masters degree in Renaissance Art she provided unique details on the David & Uffici. Didn’t know the David’s pupils were in the form of a heart …. She had her own slides which made the tour priceless. Grazie

Uffizi Gallery Small Group Tour with Guide
Anna was an amazing guide, she was incredibly knowledgeable about the art, the history of the Uffizi and the pieces, and also passionate in a way that rubbed off on the entire group. She knew what pieces to spend more time on and explain thoroughly, which was helpful given the sheer size of the gallery. Best tour in Italy thus far!

Early Access: Guided Uffizi Gallery Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Wonderful guide who waited for us when we were late. He shared his vast knowledge of the pieces in the Uffizzi with us in a way that was easy for all of us to understand, including my kids 13 and 15. Finally, I am so happy we chose the early tour. The rooms were not that busy when we arrived, but horribly crowded by the time we left.

Uffizi Gallery Small Group Tour with Guide
In general, excellent thing about skip the line tours is that you do not have to stay under the burning sun to buy tickets. Moreover, the tour takes you through the most important parts of the collection and after you can spend all your time browsing the museum. Our guide, Anna, was excellent. She is knowledgable, engaging, passionate about history and art. We enjoyed the tour and would greatly recommend it.

Jacomo was a great guide - full of knowledge and with a great sense of humour. He made it a very entertaining and informative experience - especially since we’d visited the Uffizi before. Highly recommended.

Florence: Uffizi Gallery Guided Tour
The Uffizi Gallery is the primary museum in Florence and it did not disappoint. It was wonderful to see paintings by Botticelli and Michelangelo and da Vinci. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and spoke English well. The 90 minute length was a perfect length. She showed us all the highlights then gave us the option to continue on exploring the less notable galleries in the museum on our own. I would recommend the tour to friends and family.

Skip the Line: Florence Uffizi Gallery Tickets
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.
