"The Uffizi Palace" In General... Tip by KiNyA

In General..., Florence: 49 reviews and 48 photos

by KiNyA

Favorite thing: The Uffizi Palace was build in 1560-1580 for Duke Cosimo I. He used the building as a Tuscan administration.
Today the building is one of the world's most famous galleries with some breathtaking paintings, such as Botticelli's The Birth of Venus and Michelangelo's Holy Family.
Unfortunately we didn't have time to go inside but I'll do that the next time I am in Florence ;-)
