The building inside and out is the most wonderful part
Art buffs will love everything.. I like to come first thing ok the morning , no crowds on a sunny day and sit in the galleries facing the Arno just to imagine being a Medici ..that’s really the most wonderful experience. There is tons of art w John the Baptist heads on a platter or Medusa head on a shield or Raphaels angel , Remus and Romulus sculpture -all great..but really the long windowed Halls w painted wooden ceilings.. and the views are just breathe taking

LOVED IT! Our guide Maria Christina was timely, friendly, and hit all the highlights. We saw all of the important works in 2 hours and didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Her facts were interesting and gave us an even deeper appreciation of the greats and this beautiful collection. Thanks Maria Christina!

Very informative guide
Jul 2020
Due to lower numbers than usual our tour was in Italian and English. Our guide Elizabeta did and excellent job of describing everything in both languages. The two hours went very quickly. I would recommend getting a tour guide for the Uffizi, due to the enormous amount of paintings on display. Elizabeta showed us the many highlights, some of which we might not have seen if we didn't have a guide.

Brilliant experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
Fabulous gallery, well arranged and great experience using recorded tour.very lucky with size of crowds but can imagine thus would be very busy in summer months. Only down side was large groups with guides who stand in front of main paintings to explain to their audience. These groups do pay a premium price for being in groups of 70 euro - should easily be 100 euro for such groups.

The worst scam
I booked this tour through GetYourGuide, which was as it says on the ticket. According to my voucher it included skip the line tickets and a guide in Spanish. Well the tickets that I was charged for were free that day, and as there was NO skip the line thing. Then they told me there was no guide in Spanish! So I received absolutely nothing of what I paid for. This was literally a robbery. Be careful with this guys.

A great way to see the Uffizi Gallery!
Sep 2019
We did a 3.30 pm tour with Giacomo (manageable small group of 10) - supposed to go for 2 hours, but with an initial queue delay at the beginning (during which Giacomo give us great background info), it ended up going for 3 hours - right through to 6.30 pm close.
Headsets were very effective, & Giacomo's voice was great for this role - easy to understand & heaps of detailed historic, art & political relevance.
Giacomo also showed experience & skill in steering us clear of big tour groups but getting to see & hear about the key displays. I'm no art expert but it was AMAZING to hear the art specifics, history & background of so many displays before us.
A fantastic way to spend our last afternoon in Florence before heading home!
