  • If you are in Florence you must make a visit to the Uffizi. I highly recommend a guided tour with saltafila, otherwise wait for hours in a row

  • There's not much to say about it. If you love art (notably painting) this is the place for you. The biggest minus is the fact that on the site it appears that, by booking through the call centre, there will be no reservation costs. Fake. Booking expenses the pay is in case you have purchased tickets via phone or in case you have used the online service. The visit lasts at least 3 hours and we recommend the headphones and audio tour.

  • 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.
