Uffizi Galleries (Gallerie degli Uffizi)

Tues–Sun 8:15am–6:50pm
Piazza degli Uffizi, Florence, Tuscany, 50125

The Basics

Due to its immense popularity, the Uffizi Galleries is prone to long lines and extensive wait times—it's best to book skip-the-line admission to maximize your time. The gallery features a number of long, winding art-filled hallways, making it near-impossible to see everything on display, so small-group guided tours and self-guided audio tours are recommended to help you see the top pieces and give some context to the works you’re viewing. A visit is often combined with a stop at the nearby Accademia Gallery, which houses the Statue of David.

We had Matt as our tour guide and he was fantastic!!! The meeting location was clear! He was knowledgeable, funny, punctual! The group was only 8 people, our family of 4 and another family. Everyone was able to ask questions.

Angelo is the guy you want!

Early Access: Guided Uffizi Gallery Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Angelo was our tour guide for the Uffizi. He was incredible. A tremendous wealth of knowledge and humor. He was just fantastic. If you can request Angelo, he was just great. Had a lot of insight, knowledge, and humor. He made the tour a truly memorable experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We traveled in December 2020 so the crowds weren't bad given the off season and ongoing Covid issues in Europe.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and delivered information very well. I believe that the tour is the way to visit these two museums unless you are an expert in arts.

Early Access: Guided Uffizi Gallery Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Fabrizio was the most amazing guide. We felt like we were with an art history professor learning about the details and nuances of middle age and Renaissance art. We could have stayed all day learning from this fantastic teacher... well, we being me and my husband. Teens might have stayed half the day. In any case, this tour was worth every penny!!!
