5 unmissable artworks at the Uffizi Gallery

The Uffizi Gallery is one of Florence's oldest and most popular museums, yet still vast enough to challenge even the most ravenous art lover. Our advice? Quality over quantity! Here's a selection of the best paintings to help you decide what to see.

Virgin and Child with Saint Anne (Room 7)

Masaccio's mastery of color and dimension made him the first great painter of the Early Renaissance. His Virgin is juxtaposed with Gothic angels probably painted by Masolino.

Birth of Venus (Room 10)

Perhaps the Uffizi's most famous work, Botticelli's masterpiece depicts the emergence of Venus from the sea into sensuous adulthood.

Adoration of the Magi (Room 15)

This unfinished piece by Leonardo da Vinci may not be his best, but it helps unravel the great artist's method. It's certainly one of the most interesting!

Madonna of the Harpies (Room 26)

Andrea del Sarto is one of the High Renaissance's unsung heroes. Room 26 lets you compare his bold, imposing works to those of his more famous contemporary, Raphael.

Bacchus (First floor, Room 4)

Caravaggio's use of shadow was unrivalled in his time. In one of his less dramatic works, however, he beautifully captures flawed humanity in his portrayal of the Roman God of wine.

What People Are Saying About Uffizi Gallery

We really enjoyed the bike tour. It was a great way to start our visit

This tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is on a first visit to Florence start out this way. You ride by a lot of the attractions so you get an idea of where things are and can decide what you want to revisit. You also receive a good historical overview so you know something about what you're going to see. As we continued on our visit of the city after the tour, we told many people about it and recommended that they try it. I've also already told friends in the U.S. about it.

Great way to cover the city & get lots of information

Antonio was a great guide and teacher on how to work the Segway. It was lots of fun and we are in our late 60s!!!
Florence: 3-Hour Segway Tour Reviewed by Noel, 10/24/2016

Outstanding Gallery requiring 2or more visits

We found the Gallery offered so many exhibits that it really needs more than one to absorb all the varying aspects of its treasures.

Interesting, informative and highly enjoyable.

Good guide - knowledgeable and passionate about her subject with excellent communication. Interesting and informative tour shared with some like-minded and friendly people.

This place is a zoo. You need a skip the line ticket.

The lines were horriffic @ Uffizzi so this ticket was the only way to go without having a breakdown.
