    Nice experience for a lazy afternoon
    We had supposedly bought the ticket on line but it seems we still need to go to the ticket counter to exchange for actual entry tickets. You then go to Door #1 to queue up for the time slot you had booked. Ours was for the 12:45-1pm entry. The line moved very quickly when they let this batch start going in. Start at the 3rd floor then work your way down.

    Awe Inspiring
    The Uffizi is huge and you will wander around lost if you don't have a bit of a plan before you go. I had some specific things/artists I wanted to see. I didn't do my homework and ended up wandering through every gallery. Not a bad thing, but it is a lot of walking, because I saw a lot of paintings I would probably have skipped. It is crowded (everywhere was crowded!) but very much worth a visit. It is just amazing to stand in front of iconic artwork you have seen in books all your life.

    Art, art, and art
    The Uffizi Galleries are a must see in Florence. Impressive scultures collection, not to mention about the paintings. The galleries host works of art of famous artist, such as Botticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Caravaggio. A few hours aren't enough to wander around the Gallery. Beware that it is crowded.

    Fascinating
    If self guided, read up in advance and select the top 5 or 6 items you want to see. Research and identify where they are as I couldn’t see the really famous items easily as they aren’t identified particularly. It was very crowded. Also note, to get to the gallery from entrance there is a steep staircase to climb about 4 stories or so.

    Buy tickets early, must see museum
    We had the Firenze card for this museum. I called and booked a 930am time slot. If you booked with a firenze card, you go get the tickets at gate #3, then head to gate #1 right across the street to enter. You head straight to the top floor to start the tour. It's the best of the 2 floors. Hundreds of statues and thousands of paintings. There is a cafe with a terrace on the top floor. We stopped and got water for €6. Not cheap. We spent roughly 1 1/2 to 2 hrs in there. If you stopped, looked, and read everything, it would be an all-day experience.

    Fabulous museum
    Incredible range of special items. So much more that 'The Birth of Venus' which must be the star attraction but there are also works by Da Vinci and Michelangelo. A truly great experience but please book as early as possible to avoid the longest queues..

    Excellent museum with some exquisite pieces on display
    I really enjoyed the chronological order of the museum. The curators did a great job of explaining and highlighting the progression of the Renaissance. The Uffizi holds some tremendous and captivating works of art that are waiting to be enjoyed. It was certainly crowded in the Da Vinci and Michaelangelo rooms but apart from that the other rooms were less full allowing for more reflection. It was also nice having a cafe on the open air terrace that came at a welcome point in our perusing the galleries. I have two pracitical critiques: 1- if you purchase a timed entry you first have to go redeem your ticket at the ticket office which is across the plaza from the main entrance. We followed signs to the timed entry line and were turned back to go to the ticket office for our tickets. 2- it gets a little confusing when you start to go downstairs and you could accidentally exit the entire museum. On our way in I purchased the official Uffizi guide which was great to have on hand throughout our visit. I was a little disappointed to find that there is another guide that is more definitive and inclusive of more of the collection. It's organized differently and it was fun to use the official guide that was organized by galleries but it would have been nice to know that there was a more definitive guide. All in all we really enjoyed our visit to the Uffizi

    Excellent Gallery
    One of the best art galleries in the world. Be sure to reserve your tickets well in advance. Otherwise, you'll need to book through third parties who charge more and get the group rate, but mark up the price to turn a profit. Book a few months in advance, at a minimum. The gallery itself is very big with several floors of exhibits. Guided tours are available, book in advance. Gift shop on site as well. Lots to see.

    Amazing museum, big crowds
    Amazing museum full of renaissance art by Botticelli, Donatello, Raphael etc. As of June 23 it is really crowded so by your ticket in advance and be prepared for crowds. Patience and friendly attitude will get you through it in one piece. ;)

    Skip the line ticket is advised
    Definitely worth going to the Uffizi and amazing . The building itself is beautiful with statues even before entering to see all the art and sculptures. Our ticket also included admittance to the Medici's Pritti Palace and the grounds of the Boboli Gardens around the palace. The Medicis certainly did well and all they built (Cathedral and Dome for one) in Florence.

This place is a MUST. The art galleries are stunning, the masterpieces are mind blowing. You feel really tiny by observing these brilliant works of art made by giants!

Don’t get me wrong, the museum is amazing and has some of the most beautiful paintings of all time, but the experience is not so good. First, the museum should be more organised. They allow tour guides to go inside and talk loudly to their groups, I’ve never seen such a noisy museum in my life. Most museums offer an audio guide that you listen with headphones, to not disturb the experience, but at Uffizi, you can talk as loud as you want and is completely fine. The audio guide that they provide also works without headphones, and a lot of people were listening to it on stereo. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find this very disrespectful.

This is the most impressive museum I have ever been to. It’s filled with many works of art that are quite unique and very special. You must book in advance.

One of the best museums in the world. Awe inspiring. To see the birth of Venus, the Rites of Spring, the Niobes statute plus thousands of other priceless works is incredible. I go every time I’m in Florence. It always a treasure.

Firstly, if you do want to go, you do need to book a timed ticket in advance (2-3 weeks). When we went, there were huge crowds in the morning but they had all disappeared by early afternoon - worth bearing that timing in mind.

Secondly, it is barely organised chaos, with plenty of queuing. Be ready to queue to collect your pre-booked ticket, queue again to get in, then queue for security, queue again for the cloakroom (which incidentally doesn’t accept anything other than large bags) and then queue again for the audio guide. Then you’re ready to join the crowds looking at the art.

There is no route round. The audio guide gives barely any information (it tells you who originally gave the painting to whom, and which church it was displayed in, but almost nothing about the actual art).

The top floor are the ancient and medieval main items - little information, lots of repetition in what they’ve got (we lost count of the number of “Madonna and child” paintings) and lots of bored-looking tourists popping up to snap pictures before quickly moving on.

The cafe is quite pricey and has a very limited choice of food. Taking your own is prohibited.

The floor down from the top floor was the most interesting in terms of the art, but there was no explanation at all! The audio guide had nothing to say on that floor.

We are members of the National Gallery (London) and we came away firstly disappointed with the Uffizi, but also with a renewed appreciation of British galleries, which frankly are just so much better organised.

It almost felt like the Uffizi were complacent. The tourist money is always going to roll in… so why do they need to bother to make it a better experience?

The museum has an incredible collection of art spread over 60 rooms so plan accordingly with patience and comfortable shoes. It’s a must see in Florence. However, be warned that because it is a must see, (1) get tickets well in advance and (2) expect crowds unless you are in the off season. We went in late March during the week before Easter and it was too crowded for my taste. The most popular art was mobbed by people and tour groups making it hard to enjoy the art in a contemplative mood. It was more shoot a picture when you can and move on.

There are comfortable benches in the halls running down the building so make use of those so you can pace yourself.

That said, I can’t imagine visiting Florence nd not going here so go!

Too many people. Too many queues. Organisation appalling. Art work was very good if you could see it over the heads of the crowds.

This is one of the most important Art museums not only in Florence but also in Italy. It includes art works by Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Since it is quite large, not possible to finish it before 2-3 hours. You can even spend for half a day. The important advise I can give is to come with comfortable shoes :) and do not come hungry as it will take a long time :) You can buy your ticket online to avoid waiting in long lines. But this changes based on the months. We visited February and we did not wait too much. Our ticket was 25 euros per person. It's definitely worth it. We chose to go for the morning early session. Starting the day with art was a choice that suits Florence.

It is one of the best museum galleries in the world. It hosts many Italian artistworks .
You can find the birth of venus and the spring paintings. Make sure you book your ticket online in advance, and then you have to pick it up from the ticket.ofgice before entering the museum.

This is a must see while in Firenze as it is one of the most impressive art galleries in the world. It is worth buying a skip the line ticket in advance for just 4 more euros.
