What To Expect

Skip the long entrance lines, which can stretch for hours at peak times, and head directly inside the palatial gallery to begin exploring at your leisure.

The museum houses one of the most renowned collections of Renaissance art in the world, including highlights like Leonardo da Vinci’s The Annunciation, Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo, and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Browse other paintings and sculptures from the 13th to 18th centuries according to your own pace and preferences. The building itself is a work of art, designed in the 16th century for Cosimo I de Medici by celebrated architect and artist Giorgio Vasari. Visit the Uffizi’s terrace cafe for a coffee break or simply to soak up stellar views of the neighboring Palazzo Vecchio.

Access to temporary and special exhibitions is also included in the ticket price, so you can take advantage of the museum’s rotating calendar of visiting and thematic works from across Europe.

Gallerie Degli Uffizi

The Uffizi Palace was commissioned by Cosimo I de' Medici and designed by Vasari (16th Century). It has a unusual U shape, which is closed towards the Arno. The two wings of the palace are connected by a corridor with six big arched windows, facing the Arno and the inner courtyard. Nowadays the building hosts the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most visited museums in the world, collecting masterpieces from the 13th to the 18th Century. The very beginning of the Uffizi Gallery was the collection of Francesco I de' Medici; The collection became “public and inalienable good” thanks to Duchess Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici whose will it was that it would be open to the public forever. Today, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important museums in the world, with new acquisitions and gifts. Using the elevator at the entrance of the museum is reserved for people who have special needs – including temporary – and the maximum capacity is 6 persons at a time.

      Disappointed and Cheated
      Christine_R, Jul 2022
      I was duped. I believed that I was reserving a tour but in reality I purchased a tour before I knew my itinerary. I trued to reschedule the time, reached out to the tour operator, was told I could seek a later tour time, and yet it was never confirmed. Still trying to reschedule tour for tomorrow.
      Response from Host, Aug 2022
      Good morning no one was fooled: she bought and received tickets for a visit to the uffizi gallery, NOT a guided tour. The access instructions are printed in English on the voucher you received and must be presented at the ticket office.

      Anne_C, Jun 2022
      It was tricky to get my ticket because I never got an email from Viator with my actual entry ticket. When I downloaded it it always said this is not your ticket😳. The ticket office was kind enough to print me a ticket. Ufizzi was fabulous.
      Not skip the line
      Reina_H, Oct 2021
      Instructions given were wrong and it wasn’t “skip the line”. Had to contact the seller for voucher. No extra exhibit. Wasted money and time. Gallery itself is wonderful.
      Viator Tricked me - the free cancellation policy is FALSE!!!
      Mariana_H, Sep 2021
      It is not a free cancellation policy!!! Viator tricked me in believing so!!! I bought the tickets, but confused the dates so I wanted to cancel the reservation, but the reservation was not confirmed for 3 days… Friday till Monday only 5h before the cancellation policy was triggered!!! I called to complain, and the local operator in Italy screamed at me over the phone and hanged up on me!!!! Who does that?
      Unreliable agency
      Vania_V, Aug 2021
      I asked in date 11/08 Uffizi tickets for the 23/08 al 14.30 am. They replied the day after the availability for the day at the time required. The previous day the visit they send to me vocher with entry hour 16.45 (Uffizi colsed at 18.30). I had to book with ufficial Booking Uffizi Office for another day and I lost 80 €(furthermore the tickets cost is 52 € buying they from the Uffizi official Booking Office)
      Lost my money.
      monacom, Feb 2020
      Wasn't able to go accidentally posted the wrong date was not allowed to change it once I submitted so all I did was lose my money.
      Quick Entry to Gallery
      Carol_M, Sep 2019
      This is an excellent way to skip the long lines and see the exhibits! You do need to wait until the ticket office opens to get your tickets, but then you go in quickly.
      Delayed confirmation
      Julie_K, Sep 2019
      It took a week to get confirmation on the time for this given it was a second party arrangement. Unfortunately it conflicted with another arrangement so I was out of pocket on this expense.
      Worth doing!
      christine63dales, Aug 2019
      Buying skip the line tickets is definitely worth doing if you don't want to spend a few hours of your day standing in line. However, we did travel at the height of the season, so this might not always be the case. It doesn't mean that there are no queues, just much shorter than the main line! Uffizi gallery is a definite must see when visiting Florence.
      Great!!
      catysada23, Jul 2019
      Easy and fabulous! Tickets easy to pick up in the morning next to museum. We returned at 7:00 pm. No lines! Very few people! Museum is exquisite!!
      Do not book through Viator
      Nikolas_D, Jul 2019
      Bit boring museum, viator overpriced the tickets, try to book with florencemusei.it for official rates
      Response from Host, Nov 2019
      hello, the provided service allows to reserve more than one museum in the great offer of Florence or Italy, in order to let customer experience a wider trip. Usually people look for what they already know, while Italy has much much more.......

      Andrea_H, Jun 2019
      It was easy. I just had to show my phone to a gentleman. He guided me to the ticket booth. I had to show my passport id and I got my tickets. I went to the other building and I had to go thorough security. After getting in the museum, w what to go in a stair case and we made into the exposition. It was an amazing experience and my daughter loved it.
      No lines, No wait
      Discover00724197658, Jun 2019
      You often hear about these Skip The Line tickets requiring that you still wait in line. On a busy Friday in June, we walked right up to the ticket counter to reimburse our online ticket printout and immediately turned around and walked into the museum. Great price and super fast access to the museum.

      This is was a skip the line tour, so no guide. Was my second trip to the Ufizzi. As awesome, breathtaking and incredible as the first time. You can never have enough time or opportunity to spend at the Ufizzi!

      Since we were there so late in the year, I'm not positive we really needed to get these. But we got right in and tried to make good use of our time.

      Museum is great! Skipping the line is great! Having to print your ticket sent specifically from the museum that gives you a time you don’t select ahead of time is not great.
