Uffizi Gallery - Galleria Degli Uffizi, Florence: 174 reviews and 242 photos
The Uffizzi is one of the great art museums of the world. It houses many masterworks by mainly italian artists, but also has works by other european masters. Amongst those represented are Leonardo DaVinci, Botticelli, Carravaggio, Raphael, Ruebens and Van Dyck.
Originally built as a palace for the Medici, it became a museum in the late 15th Century, open by request. It opened to the public in 1765. Because it is one of the top tourist destinations in Florence, advance tickets are virtually mandatory as lines can be quite long, especially during high season. Photography is not permitted. Though one can take photos of the many statues outside representing the giants in the arts and sciences of the Italian Rennaisance.
