"Waiting in line at the Uffizi" Uffizi Gallery - Galleria Degli Uffizi Tip by Beausoleil
Uffizi Gallery - Galleria Degli Uffizi, Florence: 174 reviews and 242 photos
This isn't the greatest picture of the Uffizi Gallery but it serves as a warning to get reservations before you go.
We discovered we couldn't get a reservation until the day we were leaving Florence so we decided a "little" wait wouldn't be a problem. We stood in line four hours and got to know those around us quite well. When we got inside, we discovered the bathrooms are at the other end of the building. One young man from Australia jumped a rope, talked his way past a couple guards and made a beeline.
I think I would have enjoyed the collection more if we hadn't stood in line for so long. As it was, we couldn't take pictures; we were tired of standing; we were hungry (lunch went by during the wait) and it was terribly crowded. We did see the biggies like Birth of Venus and Primavera and I'm glad we went. I have no desire to return but if we ever do, we will make reservations!
