"OK... this is controversial,..." Florence Tourist Trap Tip by worldkiwi

Florence Tourist Traps: 104 reviews and 61 photos


OK... this is controversial, but I am putting the Uffizi Gallery in this category. It is probably a 'must see' sight for most and like just about all tourists in Florence, I went to see it. However, (and I am not an art person I know), I found it a bit disappointing and to be truthful, rather forgettable. I remember more about the Prado in Madrid than I do about the Uffizi and I have to say I found the Prado better laid out and far more interesting. Still, don't let little old philistine me put you off! See for yourself.<BR>
The Uffizi Gallery is easy to find. Head south from the Vecchio Palace. Go early, because the queues are very long by about ten o'clock.
