Uffizi Gallery, Florence Reviews - Write a Review
This museum is amazing. The queue can be insane but you can skip it with the Florenzi although there is a small queue. I went on my own but I took the audio guide which I really recommend. They have some of the most famous artworks of the world. Different to other famous museums as the Louvre it is not very big and you can cover it in 2-3 hours. It is a most in Florence.
Love the collection itself. Two major improvements: better signage inside (so many people were wandering around "where do I begin, what's where?", & Inform people even though you reserve a time, you don't just walk in. That line is about 30 minutes mid day, which is still better than the 3 hour non reserve. But Tour Groups wait about 10 minutes & their line is always shorter. With reserve, you go to door 3, opposite the entrance to get the ticket, then you walk to the two lines by door 1 & get in the bigger line, which is usually the non Tour group line (you'll notice them by the speakers around their necks). Thankfully there are many employees (look for the badges) that can point you in the direction. NEVER buy anything from someone on the street (people buy fake tickets all the time).
What could we say after almost 5,000 excited reviewers? A fantastic, legendary place, its collection can't really be described. It has to bee seen, the atmosphere has to be experienced. A definite top spot on bucket lists. Expect very tight security. And one last thing: the audio guide should seriously be improved (as of May 2016).
Visited with no reservation and waited just under 2 hours. Beware the touts offering queue jumping. A bit hectic inside as you might expect but the art was still easy to enjoy. Got the audio guide but barely used it, the info cards for each painting were just as informative and far quicker! Spend about 3 hrs, pretty good considering that was with two young kids!
Despite the crowds, an outstanding museum. Reserve your tickets on-line well beforehand and gather them early on the day of your scheduled visit. Allow yourself time to move about freely without regard to the waves of tour groups. Don’t allow anything to mar your enjoyment of such an exhaustive collection of masterpieces.
