The city has no shortage of impressive art galleries and so to give the Uffizi Gallery the title of being the best is no throwaway statement, but it certainly is impressive. It’s list of works of art reads like a who’s who of the Renaissance Masters and they are all here; Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Titian and Rembrandt to name a few. If you like art, then this is the place for you.
It is very easy to get round and you can grab a pamphlet on the way in to point out all the main features of the gallery. it is all well laid out so that you can get round everything easily without crossing over your own path over and again. There are plenty of places to sit down on the way round, which is much needed! Many of the places to sit are in the art rooms themselves, which is nice because it means you aren't missing out on anything whilst you rest.
Entry is eleven euros, which is pretty cheap all things considered. It is insanely busy though and you have to queue. If you want to avoid the queues you need to get a pre booked ticket which you can either do online or you can go in the morning and get one that gives you a time to return, for an extra four euros. It is much busier in the summer months, so even with a pre booked ticket you may have to still queue. We were fine in October though.
Definitely recommended to see many of the masters of the art world, all in one place.
