  • One of the greatest density of tourist flow place. The building is quite original in the architectural plan, and the number of unique paintings in the exhibit can compete with the major museums of the world. Here are the paintings and sculpture collected by the Medici dynasty. The Museum contains rare works by Botticelli, Raphael, Leonard da Vinci, Rembrandt and many others of the great masters of the Renaissance.

  • We visited at the end of September. Net book from Japan, and at 16-16 when tickets for the 15 minutes it was. Tourist season is late because enough people sparse, could watch the slow. The building itself is a work of art, and great works from jumps to the next. Like that of the Royal Museum of fine arts, see size of the prosperity of the Medici family. Famous painting works, a prominent author is packed, to the high quality of the sculpture was stunned. I get tired to try in one day, so divided into several times but staff can watch the slowly. This is truly a great Museum.

  • Amazing museum with a lot of masterpieces. You better get there early or late in the afternoon to avoid long queues (I went in late October). It needs at least two hours to have a good tour.
  • We made a mistake thinking we could do this in a few hours. You can't. It's a least an all day event. Five floors packed with all kinds or art. Would recommend you get the guide in advance and pick what you want to see on each floor.
  • Only five stars! Gosh this is well off the scale. No matter your taste in art or architecture you have to visit here. You could spend days soaking up the place. Please book online before you go to minimise the queues - even booking online you have to queue but its just less of one! It really is a 'must see' venue. Not just in Italy but anywhere in the world!
  • Set aside time for this museum, it is amazing with how much art it has in it namely Renaissance art. It deserves time, and you will not regret your time even if you only partially enjoy art.
  • The artwork in the gallery is phenomenal. I recommend a guided tour, such as those provided by ArtViva, for the full experience. My guide Elizabeta spent several minutes on each painting that she discussed. She used the artwork to weave a narrative of the changing art, culture, and politics of Florence, and giving insights into what the artists themselves were like.
