  • A lot of pictures and sculptures were very impressive. It was interesting for me to be able to compare the same title or subject pictures made by different painters.

  • I'd visited the Uffizi before along with the crowds of a Fall day but this time was very special. When coming to Firenze I had planned to visit every room of the Uffizi this time but what I didn't expect was to have the entire gallery virtually to myself. I arrived before 9 am and took the elevator to the top floor where the "long tour" has it's beginning. I was able to walk through the sculpture gallery then turn into the rooms of paintings then back out to the sculpture gallery, without passing another soul. It wasn't until 10 am or so that a few other folks joined in, but by then I was nearly done with that floor and ready to descend to the next where once again I was alone. Hard to beat that one!
  • Beside the famous works of Botticelli, the other works are totally worth seeing. The building itself is gorgeous and very nicely organized. Don't miss out on the Caravaggio's Medusa! I would totally come back again and spend hours and hours here.
  • Beautiful and interesting gallery filled with paintings, sculptures and beautiful rooms. Takes quite a while to walk through, around 2 hours depending on how long you take on each piece of art work. I would recommend getting the audio guide as it helps you to understand the art in more depth and gives more information than on the plaques. There is also a nice café where you can grab a bite or sit and have a drink. I had a great experience, and definitely recommend!
  • An incredible place that everyone should visit. This is a giant gallery, you need at least 3 hours, We did not buy tickets in advance and there was practically no queue either. We paid 24 € for one. Be sure to visit to enjoy the original masterpieces and get cultural satisfaction.
  • Wonderful museum/gallery. There are both beautiful sculptures and great paintings. Also, great views of Florence from inside the gallery. Spent probably 2 hours in there but you could easily spend 4-5 hrs if you go into the details of each piece.
