Visit the museum well-restedInside the gallery, there aren’t many places where you can stop to take a break. There are a few seats in the Botticelli room and the first section of the gallery, and there’s also a café at the end of the first floor where you can grab some refreshments before continuing.
Leave luggage at the entranceLarge items of luggage, umbrellas, and other bulky objects need to be placed in the cloakroom at the entrance to the gallery. The cloakroom is free to use.
Plan your tripSince the gallery contains a large number of artworks, it’s a good idea to do a bit of research before visiting! Decide which pieces you absolutely have to see and plan your route through the rooms of the gallery so that you don’t miss anything.

History of the Uffizi

Originally, the building served as the seat of the offices (uffici in Italian) of the city administration from the middle of the 15th century. The order to gather important administrative institutions in one building dates back to Cosimo I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. Between 1559 and 1581, the building complex was then built by the architects Vasari, Buontalenti and Parigi the Younger.

Soon the art collection managed by Cosimo's heir, Francesco de' Medici was part of the Uffizi Gallery. From 1789, the Medici art collection, which had been housed in the building since the beginning, was also opened to the public. Some art historians therefore consider the galleries of the Uffizi the first museum in Europe.

When the Medici dynasty finally fell, the once powerful family bequeathed its art treasures to the city of Florence on condition that they never leave their location.

The original gallery

The synonymous use of the word Gallery for an exhibition of paintings probably goes back to the galleries of the Uffizi: gallery means architecturally a walkway open to one side. Such corridors have always made up a large part of the exhibition spaces.

Guided tours of the Uffizi

Having the most important works in the Uffizi explained during a tour adds another dimension of art historical factual knowledge to a visit to the museum: High-quality tours of the Uffizi are offered online, with real added value. Although it may be more efficient to navigate the Uffizi on your own when there is a high volume of visitors, the additional contextual information provided by expert guides remains invaluable.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a visit to the Uffizi take?

While you can walk through the gallery complex in about two hours, you will probably want to take a little longer to really enjoy the art on display. You should probably plan to spend about three to four hours inside, while big fans of art history could spend most of a day exploring and admiring the pieces being exhibited. The collection is huge and it’s impossible to give each piece of art the same amount of attention - but you’re welcome to try! Read more.

Can I take photographs or sketch inside the gallery?

Photography is allowed inside the gallery, but only for personal use and visitors should make sure that their flash is turned off. Selfie-sticks, tripods, or other professional photography equipment is not allowed. Sketching inside the museum is only allowed with a pencil and paper or using digital devices such as tablets - paints, charcoal or other materials are not allowed. Read more.

Should I book a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery?

It can be fun to dive deeper into the most important works of the gallery with an expert guide, but it’s not absolutely necessary. Art history lovers might appreciate being shown around and hearing more information, or they might prefer to do their own research and proceed at their own pace. When the gallery is at its busiest it can be much easier to explore the different rooms by yourself rather than having to keep up with a guide. Having said that, there are several providers who offer high-quality tours of the Uffizi, so if you generally prefer having a guide with you, there are plenty of good options to consider. Read more.
