Uffizi Gallery - Review

It would not be an exaggeration to call this gallery one of the most important in world art history. Shaped as a ‘U’ single long hallway, it’s magnificent frescoed ceilings and breath-taking collection of paintings draw over 1.8 million visitors every year (normally more than 10,000 everyday). To list the iconic masterpieces in the gallery would takes ages and pages. You may do so on the attraction website; here, instead, we’ll simply list the names of the masters whose works hang in the hall. They are: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian,Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Hugo van der Goes, Giovanni Bellini, Francisco Goya , Pieter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Parmigianino, Giotto, Sandro Botticelli, and many, many more.

The building in which the gallery is housed was built in the 16th century to house the offices ‘Uffizi’ of Florentine magistrates.

Uffizi Gallery, Florence Reviews

  • One of the best and the biggest museum/ gallery in Florence. It is must visit for any art lover. This place is huge and it may easily take 5 to 6 hours and if you are really into arts I would suggest taking two days pass. Also it's a good idea to take a guided tour. Make sure you take a good walking shoes and wear comfortable clothing as you will be walking a lot. The actual art collection is amazing and breath taking. Loved the place.

  • There's a lot of stuff to see there. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT! The only problem is that you really won't be alone. Just getting inside could be quite a adventure. If you have questions, not everyone in charge will accept to talk to you. Only talk to people dressed in green. If you booked beforehand, be sure to be there in time and find the right guy. After, your need to find the right line and then you'll probably get in. Good news, you can take pictures, providing your quick enough to do it before someone jump in front of you... To take a picture.

  • A must see while in Florence! We paid an extra 4 euro to get the reserve pass. It was well worth it. We were only in line for 2 minutes. Not as crowded as other galleries, well set up to keep traffic moving. You get a good sense of the history of the city.

  • Everyone knows the upsides of Uffizi Gallery. Here are things they must do better. We bought No- Line tickets, but still had to stand in line about 20 minutes. Parking is non-existent. We programmed our GPS for a nearby park garage, but it was in a restricted area! One hundred Euro fine. The toilets were married with graffiti and the women's toilet was missing the ring.

  • This is truly one of the most remarkable galleries in the world. It's worth the entrance price(about €20), the wait(about 30 min with a Firenze Card), the time (about 4 hours with an audio guide). There is something for everybody here. From the fact that it was commissioned towards the end of the middle ages for the same purpose that is has now (art) to the fact that it houses the work of some of the world's greatest artists and everything in between. There is no way you won't like it.
