Good to know

From July to September the queues will be enormous. Book your tickets ahead of time. You'll still have to queue but it'll be much shorter.
It's closed Mondays, so plan your schedule accordingly.
For non-Italians the name ‘Uffizi' may seem exotic, but the reality is somewhat less inspiring. It means ‘Offices', because it was originally the administrative offices of the Medici.
You'll never see all the incredible Renaissance works on hand, so make sure you cover highlights such as, Botticelli's ‘Birth of Venus' and ‘Primavera', Da Vinci's ‘Annunciation', Caravaggio's ‘Medusa‘, and ‘Portraits of the Duke & Duchess of Urbino' by Piero della Francesca.
The busiest times are weekends, Tuesdays and mornings. Avoid the crowds by visiting in the winter months, first thing in the morning, or around lunchtime.
There's a secret corridor that connects the Uffizi to the Pitti Palace. Designed by Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century, it allowed the Medici to move freely through the city.
Anna Maria Luisa de'Medici, the last of the Medici, is credited for saving the city's cultural heritage. She signed a pact ensuring her family's art collection would forever remain in Florence.
The artworks here have been seriously damaged a number of times. Once by the 1966 Arno flood and later by a car bomb in 1993 (allegedly planted by the Sicilian Mafia).

The inside story

Cosimo I de Medici, Tuscany’s first Grand Duke, initiated the Uffizi project in 1560 to create administrative space for Florence (‘Uffizi’ means ‘offices’). He commissioned famed architect Giorgio Vasari, who added a secret corridor to the Pitti Palace (which you can visit today) and demolished other ancient buildings. The arches and columns you see on Via deal Ninna are remains of the Romanesque church of San Pier Scheraggio.

The building first became a gallery in 1581, when Francesco I de Medici established a private collection in the octagonal Tribuna room. The family then added to this collection until they died out in the eighteenth century. It wasn’t until 1789 that the public was first allowed access to the gallery. These days, the Uffizi and the Vatican museums in Rome are the two most visited museums in Italy (the Uffizi itself attracts a million people annually). As a result, the Uffizi is currently being modernized by architect Arata Isozaki to increase space and access. It remains open throughout the process.
