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.

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.
Costanza, our tour guide, was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. She took excellent care of us. Well worth it!

Uffizi Gallery Small Group Tour with Guide
Irina was an amazing guide that brought paintings and artists back to life. Her stories not only included a timeline of how art evolved but also how the Medici made Florence into one of the most flourishing cultural cities of Europe. We are very happy with the tour!
This tour is a no brainer

Florence in a Day: Michelangelo's David, Uffizi and Guided City Walking Tour
Kiara was our tour guide. She was knowledgeable as well as friendly and charismatic. Sometimes you get a tour guide that knows a lot but is boring as heck....This was not Kiara. She was delightful. She knew so much about the area, the art, the history and the buildings. I honestly am NOT an art person. I went on this tour because my husband drug me along. I found myself really enjoying it and I am so glad he insisted we go.
Highly recommend.

Uffizi Gallery: skip the line tickets
It was not “skip the line” - the guide has the ticket and you queue with the groups. BUT I was delighted not to have to navigate buying tickets. I arrived 2 minutes early and the guide was already on the phone calling me to check where I was. She came to find me which was nice. The guide Vittoria was excellent and spoke good English. It was a great tour showing us the most important works in a small group. I definitely recommend.
Awesome Experience with engaging Guide
