Book tickets in advance, or you will end up waiting on line for an hour or more. Also, do some research before coming here. It's a big museum and you can get overwhelmed if you spend a long time looking at everything. Instead, you want to make sure you see the highlights: Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Laocoon statue, Titian's Medussa, the Da Vinci section, and a few other major, major works of art that you know you'd feel bad if you missed. To me, the remainder of the works are a bit of a bonus--I stopped to look at the ones that especially called to me (there were a lot; I was here for 4 hours), but decided I didn't have to feel guilty about walking past if others didn't pique my interest. Oh, and please note that David is NOT in this gallery. David is at the Academia down the street. I saw some people make that mistake.
It's huge. Try not to spend too much time at the ancient statues that line both sides of the gallery. They are worth it, but you will be too tired to enjoy the masterpieces of old masters when you eventually reach them.
Fast track tickets are worth every dime. Be sure to have an id on you, if you'd like to use an audio guide, they ask for it as bail for audio guide (weird,eh?). We had to settle for paperback guide and I find it better option since I can take it with me after the visit and peruse through it for months after the trip. Be sure to allocate at least 2.5 hrs for a tour, it's worth every minute if you're into art, but be prepared to see numerous interpretations of same important biblical plots by different authors. Still, it's an awesome once in a lifetime experience.
In my opinion the gallery is slightly overpriced, the collections are monotonous after a while of looking at similarly looking icons even some art enthusiast would start yawning. I think it could be a bit more engaging if collections were more varied and if there was more information and descriptions provided. The cafe charges over double price for serving coffee outside by the table, which we thought was quite cheeky considering the ticket price itself.
I booked a guided tour with company called Dark Rome. Skipped the v. long queue and amazingly well informed guide, especially if you like a bit of art but maybe aren't that up to speed on the Renaissance.
This is a HUGE museum and if you want to see it all, you'll need to plan at least 4 hours. The queue w/o a reservation and Florence Museum pass or pre-purchased ticket is VERY long, so spend the money on the pass if you will be seeing more than 2 museums or buy your tickets and place a reservation in advance. The tourism office will walk you through the process very quickly.
The location and the staff. The staff was great, very kind and helpful. We had a problem with the AC but we called the staff guy and he came as soon as possible and took care of it quickly. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom had everything from towels and a hairdryer to toiletries. The location was wonderful, close to the central train station and close to Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. Nearby there are plenty of restaurants, pharmacies and grocery stores.
- Very dedicated staff - Guilia went above and beyond to help us avoid an expensive car fine, we are very grateful! She also had lots of info about the city... where to go, what time is best, where to eat - The rooms are HUGE and have a cool decor - Fabulous breakfast, lots of different options and most of it is homemade, individually prepared to your time preference - Great location, about a 7 min walk to the Uffizi Gallery
This is a gem in the heart of Florence. It is inside an old building with a beautiful staircase. The room was very big for hotel standards and was very comfortable for 3 people. It was also clean and had a lovely view of the roof tops of the city. It is literally between the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery and it is so convenient to touch and go at the hotel throughout the day!
Location, location, location ! Very good location, 3 min from Uffizi Gallery and all important tourist places, with vibrant streets. The app. has the atmosphere of the aesthetic Italian heritage, we loved the place and intend to come back one day. The owner was very supportive and warm, a very nice gentlemen.
Beautiful property close to Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery The property is very well maintained Rooms are clean and spacious The staff was very helpful especially Cristina, our breakfast host Delicious and plentiful breakfast with homemade cakes, beautifully served and attention for details
Location is superb! It is right next to the duomo. Walkable distance to Uffizi gallery and all the things you want to see in Florence. The location is surely the best thing about this place.
Excellent location, walking distance from main Florence attraction ( 5 min Pitti Palace, 5 min Uffizi Gallery), nice and quiet neigbourhood.
The city center is in itself an open air museum containing architectural and sculptural masterpieces. The Uffizi is a treasure but make sure to book in advance to skip lines and do get yourself a good guide (live or audio).
Spend the day wandering around the Uffizi and the Duomo (for a more enriching experience join a tour or two especially to gain access to exclusive areas, rent an audioguide or download a walking tour audioguide on your phone), have a coffee in Piazza Republica in the evening, followed by dinner at a trattoria nearby, then walk around to Ponte Vecchio to enjoy a live performance
Ponte Vechio bridge, Uffizi Gallery, Basillica of Santa Croche, Duomo and many more.
Due to national strike I failed to visit Uffizi and Academia galeries. But other cathedrals and churches contain also perfect art.
Essential to book the Uffizi and the Accademia in advance, because the lines are crazy!
Uffizi Gallery is a "must" for those who want to dive into Italian Renaissance.
