  • Recounting the experience of this visit is not trivial, breathless, however ugly the thing that not all rooms were accessible for lack of staff. room for improvement ...

  • After visiting the most famous museums of Europe one realises that the artistic vision of the Uffizi is unmatched and surpasses by far the competition French, Spanish, English, German. The masterpieces that can be admired in the Uffizi deserve to be seen and reviewed more than once in their lifetime. If Florence is considered the world capital of art and culture a good part of the credit goes ascribed to priceless masterpieces on display in theaters from works by Titian, Raphael, Botticelli, Giotto, Caravaggio and many others. Although in the world the Uffizi is positioned just 20th place this can be charged to the fact that for decades politicians have considered culture, art, tourism, as a secondary resource unable to generate well-being and public benefits. With the opening to the public of the Vasari corridor you can see another Italian cultural wealth.

  • Nothing to add to what is probably the most beautiful and precious art gallery site. Recommended the tour with Camilla di help Slow Tour Tuscany/Musement: young, passionate and prepared.

  • Incredibile, just...incredible. I mean, there’s about a hundred little museums in Florence, but this one is one you have got to see. Excellent art collection available. Don’t be bothered by the excessively long line to get in, though. Take your time and savor everything you see. I would recommend getting a guide (and even being in a guided tour group...they can get in a little faster) so you can really understand all that you’re seeing. It’s beautiful. I wouldn’t worry too much about the line, it moves relatively fast and is not so bad. Stay hydrated and energized. I would suggest buying tickets online and picking them up when you get there. You still have to wait in line, but if you reserve in advance you don’t have to worry about them being sold out. During the summer at night they show movies in Italian on a big projector in the plaza. Pretty neat.
  • A mind blowing fine-art packed experience. We ambled through in a comfortable 4 hours. The place was laid out so that you follow a set path instead of weaving between different areas which worked well. It isn't all air conditioned and some areas were quite warm, others a bit chilly!perfect for couples, individuals or families. The cafe was well stocked but as you would expect, very expensive.
  • For the ones who love and adore art, this is like one of the top 5 museums in the world. Every room has a crown jewel and you just walk through the rooms stunned by the beauty. Do not skip this museum no matter what. (I think It is also the world's most visited museum so I guess people don't usually skip it anyway) Keep your cell phone and google the images you like for more info, as I think many of this images deserve a little bit more recognition.
  • Here you can see in real life those master pieces what you have read about. Amazing collection of art. One tip, simply go in time early in morning if you don´t love standing and waiting among hundreds of others. If you are an art history student this is must place to visit. Amazing place indeed.
  • Uffizi Gallery is a beautiful museum with a lot of very recognisable art pieces. Do not underestimate its size. At a leisurely pace, seeing everything in this museum will take several hours. Buying a ticket in advance to cut the line can be a good idea, since the lines can be very long (an hour or more). Taking photos is allowed without flash! When you are visiting Florence, be sure to visit this museum.
