4 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!

Bacchus (First floor, Room 4)
Caravaggio’s use of shadow was unrivaled 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

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great guide. But I am STILL waiting for my refund of 96 euros
Great guide who really knew art history and made it interesting. However, I am STILL waiting for my refund when the tour was double booked online. Very annoying that Get Your Guide has now honored this as was promised.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Uffizi was truly something exceptional.
Highly recommended…I spent three hours wandering from one gallery to another…there is a nice coffee shop where you can sit and enjoy a drink and a pastry, rest a while then carry on.

Florence: Timed Entrance Ticket to the Uffizi Gallery reviewed by Sharon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent tour, not only art highlights but the history of Florence
Julia was an amazing guide. She was able to put everything together– the art, the history, and why the Uffizi is such a special place. One can easily buy a ticket and go look at the art, but we gained such an appreciation for the art – the technical aspects, it’s a political message, and why the artist themselves were so special. Thank you — I can’t say enough good about this tour!

Ultimate Uffizi: Priority Entrance Small-Group Tour reviewed by Marcia

⭐⭐⭐⭐ The best art experience I’ve seen in my life
I and my husband I were fascinated by the huge variety of art. We were pleased to see the paintings and sculptures of so many great artists in Italy and the whole world. We liked it so much, that we made a second tour in both corridors on both floors. Definitely recommend it to all the people who are in art
