"Uffizi, courtyard" Florence Favorite Tip by MATIM

Florence General: 471 reviews and 520 photos

  Uffizi, courtyard

Favorite thing: The gallery of the Uffizi is the most famous picture gallery in Italy and one of the best known in the world. It furnishes a complete panorama of the various schools of Florentine painting.
It also includes numerous collections of other Italian schools and a fine group of Flemish paintings, as well as the famous collection of self-portraits.

The Uffizi was commissioned from Giorgio Vasari by the Medicis as administrative and judicial offices.
Twenty years later, the two wings with a loggiato at the bottom are connected by a third wing with arches along the river Arno.
