Arrive first thing in the morning! The square is nearly empty and it's beautiful. Less crowded. People say you need to book ahead. You don't. Just get there early and stand in the line at Door 2. It's 4€ cheaper than advance booking and it was easy. Not as much rennaissance art as I thought, BUT to quality over quantity. To see an unfinished work of Leonardo Da Vinci, The Venus, etc...breathtaking! I recommend bee-lining to what you want to see and going back to the other stuff afterwards (do you can view in peace with fewer people in the galleries).
Make sure you reserve tickets, even with them there is a line that took 45-60 minutes. Totally worth it! Could not check my bag and regretted having heavy backpack. Plan a nice long day there with a lunch break- so much to see in a beautiful setting!
We booked tickets ahead of time, for the earliest time available of 0815, and we were able to see our favorite artists before it got too crowded. After a couple hours it was near impossible to see close ups of anything with the massive tour groups. We also went in November rather than summer.
Sadly our tour was canceled on us at 11pm the night before !!!! Didn't find out till that am. All tours were booked up for the next 2 days... after we had to leave. The wait time outside w/o a tour...4-6 hrs !!!
Get a pass to "skip the line" or go very early, BTW, it's closed on Monday. Don't get guided tour! We took the guided tour and left it..LONG, BORING information; if you really want to know every trivial detail, read a book at your leisure instead of wasting valuable vacation time. One hour into tour hadn't even made it to Botticelli hall, about 3rd main room. Save your money, time and sanity!
This is the first time I've taken a guided tour at an art museum and would definitely recommend taking one. The experience had more depth and maintained my interest in the gallery. We used Artviva.

The large studio apartment was very nicely decorated, quiet, well equipped and comfortable. The location is excellent, right behind the Uffizi Gallery and in a street with lots of restaurants and shops. Vincent helped us get our luggage up the long steep flight of stairs when we arrived. He provided a map of Florence with all the key sights highlighted and many recommended restaurants and they were very good. He allowed us to store our luggage until our suite was ready and was prompt with his response to our text when we had a question.

We stayed in this hotel 3 nights. breakfast was included (in restaurant right next door). breakfast was good, restaurant staff not so friendly. The hostess of the hotel was very nice, helpful and friendly. We were given a map and a short course on what to see in Florence. Hostess secured skip the line tickets to Uffizi Gallery for the evening of our arrival - saved us a lot of time. Location is great - quiet street 2 min walk to Duomo. perfect place to stay. we will definitely come back.

The apartment is well located and is in a safe area. It's about 10 minute-walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and the Santa Maria Novella Church. You can walk to the Florence historic old town and visit the Duomo Cathedral, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi gallery, Ponte Vecchi, and other sights in Florence. The apartment is very clean. The breakfast (included in the room price) is superb. The manager, Andreas, is very kind. I recommend this place.

Very helpful staff, spoke English and helped us with a recommendation for dinner and made a reservation for us at the Uffizi Gallery, which we had had some trouble with. Great continental breakfast in a very lovely setting. Parking the rental car was very easy and we could have left it beyond our checkout time, if we had needed that. An excellent stay! Grazie!

Very nice hotel, loved the decor and high ceiling. Location is perfect, walking distance to Duomo and Uffizi gallery, lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, emailed us a couple times prior to provide transportation tips and made sure that we received the access code for late check-in. Highly recommend this place!

This little boutique B&B was absolutely lovely. Our spacious, themed room felt like our own little apartment. Right off of the Ponte Vecchio and next door to the Uffizi Gallery, it was in a prime location. Sonia made our check-in very easy.

It was perfect. Right around the corner from Uffizi Gallery and up the block there were millions of food choices.
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.
