About Uffizi Gallery

The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most popular attractions in Florence, and one of the oldest public museums in the world. It’s home to Italy’s finest collection of Renaissance paintings and sculptures with some truly outstanding works by prominent artists of the era such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael. 

The word ‘Uffizi’ means ‘offices’ in Italian, as the building was originally commissioned in the 16th century – by Cosimo I de Medici, Duke of Florence – to house the administrative offices of the city. However, when the Medici family started to get serious about collecting art, the grand spaces became the perfect showcase for their growing collection. 

Today, the gallery has over 100 rooms and owns more than 100,000 artworks. One of the most famous paintings on display is Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, which depicts the goddess Venus rising from the sea. Another major draw is Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation, portraying the angel Gabriel announcing to the Virgin Mary that she will give birth to Jesus. The Uffizi is also home to a number of unusual exhibits, including a collection of antique musical instruments and a room full of the scientific discoveries of Galileo Galilei.  

Things to know before you go 

  • Book your ticket in advance to avoid queues during busy times 

  • Using the main entrance entails going up four flights of stairs to reach the second floor of the gallery, which is where the museum visit starts. Visitors with reduced mobility can use the accessible entrance at the Vasari Auditorium, where there is a lift to the second floor. The accessible entrance is in Via della Ninna. Accessible restrooms are available. 

  • Photography is allowed without flash, stands or tripods. 

  • No food and drink are allowed in the gallery. 

  • Mobile phones must be on silent mode. 

  • Animals are not allowed, except guide dogs, service dogs or therapy pets with proper certification. 

  • The gallery café is well worth a stop – it has a breezy rooftop terrace with epic views over Florence. 

Opening hours of the Uffizi Gallery 

Tuesday to Sunday – 08:15 to 18:30. The ticket office closes at 17:30.

CLOSED ON MONDAYS and on 25 December 

How to get there 

  • Public transport – The closest train station is Firenze Santa Maria Novella. Buses 23 or C3 pass the station and go close to the Uffizi Gallery. 

  • Parking – If you’re driving, there are several parking options near the Uffizi Gallery. The closest parking lot is Parterre, located just outside the ZTL (restricted traffic zone) and about a 10-minute walk from the gallery. 

  • Walking – The Uffizi Gallery is located in the heart of Florence’s historic centre, so it is easily accessible on foot from many popular attractions. For example, it’s a 10-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio and a 15-minute walk from the Duomo

What should I really see at the Uffizi Gallery?

Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus and Primavera are two of the most famous and recognisable paintings in the museum. 

Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo is a circular painting depicting the Holy Family. It’s one of the few surviving paintings by the artist. 

Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation is a fine example of his early work. 

Raphae’s Madonna of the Goldfinch is a celebrated depiction of the Madonna and Child. 

Other notable artworks include Caravaggio’s Medusa, Titian’s Venus of Urbino, and Rembrandt’s Self-Portrait.  

The Uffizi Gallery also has a spacious rooftop terrace café with fabulous views of Florence.  

What are the best ways to visit the Uffizi Gallery?

If you have limited time, a guide will allow you to get so much more from your Uffizi visit. It’s a huge gallery and your guide will ensure you get a good overview without missing any of the major works. 

You can pick up an audio guide for an extra few euro inside the entrance of the Uffizi. Commentary is available in Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Russian and Japanese. The audio guide rental desk closes at 17:00. 

How much time do I need for visiting the Uffizi Gallery?

Most visitors spend around 2-4 hours at the Uffizi Gallery to see the highlights and get a sense of the collection. If you’re passionate about art, you’ll need several hours to explore the galleries thoroughly.  

It’s also important to consider the lines and crowds at the Uffizi Gallery, which can vary depending on the time of day, season, and special events. To avoid waiting in long queues, we recommend booking your tickets in advance and arriving early in the morning or late in the afternoon. 

What is the best time to visit the Uffizi Gallery?

Cheaper ‘early bird’ tickets are available for prebooking for entry before 08:55 in high season – March to October. Generally, the quieter times are early and late in the day. What’s more, pricing is seasonal. Tickets are discounted from November to February. Tuesdays and weekends tend to be the busiest days, but the gallery is rarely quiet. If you don’t mind queueing, you can access the Uffizi for free on the first Sunday of the month, but tickets are not pre-bookable so expect long lines. 

When will the Corridoio Vasariano finally reopen?

The secret passage known as the Corridoio Vasariano connects the Uffizi Gallery to the Palazzo Pitti via the Ponte Vecchio, and it has been closed for extensive renovations since 2016. The reopening was originally scheduled for 2022, but the latest news is that it will reopen in the first half of 2023. It’ll be for one way foot traffic only, departing from the Uffizi end. Whether it will require a separate ticket is not yet clear.
