"Uffizi" Uffizi Gallery - Galleria Degli Uffizi Tip by Jmill42

  Outside the Uffizi

First, I am a much bigger fan of Impressionistic art than anything else, and normally am not the biggest fan of Renaissance art. But, the Uffizi blows you away with its wondrous works of Renaissance. One after the other. Famous works, by famous artists, and just as fabulous works by lesser known people. The entire place is boiling over with masterpieces.

It is worth the wait in line that you will have to endure in the high season. I was there in early October, and I waited about an hour and a half.

Tickets cost 8.50 Euro for adults. 4 for students of the EU (or for US students who beg...)

Address: Via della Ninna 5
Directions: next to Palazzo Vecchio
