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 was excellent. Located right on Piazza della Signoria, the apartment was right in the middle of the main spots. The building had an elevator to conveniently carry luggage to the second floor (third floor in US terms). It was literally a two-minute walk to Uffizi gallery, and lots of eating places around. The host was very responsive and helped us book a taxi the day we were leaving (it was difficult to get the taxi services to pick up our calls from a US number). It was a quiet place despite being close to the actitivies.
Great central location. Walkable to most of the important Florence historic sites and museums (Accademia, Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore), as well as restaurants and shopping. Very nice room, super-attentive staff and beautiful rooftop restaurant and bar with an amazing view of the city. A plus if you arrive by train - the hotel is a very short walk from the train station. Even lugging our suitcases packed for a three-week trip, it was easily walkable for my husband and me.
The room size was quite big with a very high beautiful wooden ceiling. Also there was a separate cloakroom with a big mirror with enough space for the clothes and the stuff. Silvia is a great and very kind person! It was a pleasure to meet her and we appreciate a lot all her advices about Florence and local restaurants. The apartment is located within 5 min walk to the main destinations like Uffizi gallery and Ponte Vecchio, on the same street as famous All’Antico Vinaio (always huge line!).
Gabriel and his team were kind, friendly, so helpful and knowledgeable. Gabriel also helped park our car in tight parking spaces. Great adjoining rooms for our family of 4 so kids’ room is connected to us. The hotel has a nice breakfast with lovely staff, close location that is 15 minutes walking to everything- Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, great shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return to the Hotel David upon our return to Firenze.
I go almost every year to Florence and will not book any other place but this one! Location is excellent, apartment has everything you need, beds are comfortable and hosts are very responsive. Fully air conditioned, rare to see in Italy apartments. View is amazing, from one side you see the beautiful Arno River and from the other side you can see the Uffizi Gallery, the top of the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio.
The location of Soggiorno Antica Torre cannot be beat! The front door opens right into Piazza della Signoria and is right around the corner from the world famous Uffizi Gallery. Not to mention it is within walking distance of the beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. Both receptionists were accommodating and made us feel welcome! The whole B&B was very cozy and felt like home :)
The hotel is very beautiful and typically Italian! The staff was amazing! The location is fantastic - walking distance to the Uffizi Gallery! We had the most amazing breakfast in a beautiful dining room with a frescoed ceiling and a crystal chandelier! I would recommend it to anyone! Thank you!
The location is fabulous -- close to many places (Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, shopping, Market Centrale, train stazione, and more!) Hosts provided a few kitchen essentials (coffee, milk, snacks.) The terrace was lovely!!
The location is perfect - 5' from Uffizi Gallery, 5' from Duomo, in the back of Dante's Museum, etc. We are a family of 5 and we got a suite, which is in fact a big apartment with 2 rooms.
+ Unbeatable location, a stone throw from the Uffizi Gallery and Santa Maria del Fiore + Huge room + A big mirror in the bedroom + Clean bed and towels + Quick responses from the property
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.
