  • The view of the Uffizi U-shaped building and its inner courtyard, located not far from the Arno River, is perfect. Being here in this place and watching these works of art by genius artists is a...  more »

  • If you want to see the best of Renaissance & Italian paintings then this is the place. It has so many classics that one can't count. Located in the center of town, it is so easy to add this stop to any itinerary. There are many sights to see & be prepared to take the stairs to start at the top. Worth a visit you you are indeed an art lover.
  • Spectacular museum with a ton of statues and paintings. We spent 6 hours there and probably could have spent much more. There are guided tours, and audio guides available but if you can read Italian or English then the placards give great explanations for every piece. The rooftop cafe is also nice! Seat yourself and you will be served. The sandwiches are great and the desserts are delectable!
  • Difficult one this. The building inside is spectacular, a point hard to argue with. Art on the other hand is subjective to taste. If you love religious art repeated and repeated and repeated, then go visit. If like me you prefer more of the Guggenheim experience with modern and contemporary mixed with abstract, then save your money. Yes the purists will berate my opinion and so be it. Was I glad I went? 50/50 Would I go again, nope. Do I love art, definitely. Did I study architecture, yes. Does my opinion count? You decide.
  • One of many tourist spots to visit while in Florence. Plenty of historical paintings and sculptures amassed by mostly the Medici family. Highly recommend ordering the tickets online and getting the earliest time slot. This ensures that you beat out the big lineups mid morning.
  • One of my favorite parts of this incredible museum are the individual subjects displayed on the ceiling ❤️ they each list masters in that subject...mathematics, philosophy, art 🖼, music 🎶, and so much more. The details on each one are so impressive and then you have all the art and the building itself .. my gosh, I think I fell in love 🥰 enjoy!!
