What to expect

The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most famous art galleries in Italy and in the whole world: buy this official ticket, avoid wasting hours in queues and conserve your energy to fully enjoy the masterpieces that await you! With the audio guide option, you'll also be able to download an app that will accompany you during the visit to the museum.

The Gallery was designed and built by the famous architect and painter Giorgio Vasari, Cosimo I de' Medici's favorite artist. This facility was intended to house the offices ("uffizi" in 16th-century Florentine language) of the magistrates of the city. Cosimo I wanted the collections that the Medici family had accumulated to be placed on the piano nobile of the new building. Very soon, this became the place where the works of artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were collected, but the museum was officially opened to the public in 1765.

Today, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the top destinations for travelers from all over the world. It's especially famous for its incredible collection of Renaissance paintings, but it also hosts special sections dedicated to German, Dutch and Flemish art. The works of Giotto, Simone Martini, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Mantegna, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Dürer, Rembrandt and Rubens are just a small part of the many wonders that can be admired in the rooms of this extraordinary museum.

Admire the eight rooms dedicated to Caravaggio, where you will find on display the Medusa, the Bacchus, the Sacrifice of Isaac and other masterpieces by Merisi, alongside the paintings of other great 17th century artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and Rubens. Don't miss out on the new room dedicated to Michelangelo and Raffaello where you will find a collection of eleven masterpieces by these two artists including the Tondo Doni and the Madonna del Cardellino. Finally, you will be able to visit the space dedicated to Leonardo with the Adoration, the Annunciation and the Baptism.
