One of the world's great art galleries and museums, the Uffizi Gallery was begun for Cosimo I de Medici in 1560. The 'U' shaped structure was once the offices - uffizi - of the Medici administration. Each generation of Medici added to the family's extraordinary personal art collection, which was then housed in the Uffizi.
All of our tickets and guided tours are fully inclusive, covering any exhibitions that may be on at the time of your visit, and are all 'skip the line' * tickets; we regularly arrange quantities of pre-booked tickets at particularly busy times in order to offer reserved entrance during high season. The Uffizi is, you don't need telling, a unique repository of unique masterpieces, and we have some visitor information and images on this page.
Included with most tickets is an e-book guide to the gallery, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians, and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else. If you want even more before visiting, you can enjoy an immersive experience of the gallery via the Google Arts & Culture Project
If you have time, an option is to visit the Uffizi as part of a longer guided tour of Florence - see what's available on this page.
The buttons below will give greater detail on the tickets and tours we offer throughout the year, and do use our calendar to check availability!
Group bookings: please note that if you are making a booking for more than 15 people then please contact us to arrange this. The Uffizi now has an extra charge for groups above 15 people - 70 Euro at time of writing. We have an information page for group bookings here.
* As of October 2018 the Uffizi has begun to use airport-style security scanners, and this has meant some unavoidable delays - hopefully systems will improve but, in the meantime, if you're visiting on a Tuesday or at the weekend, please do arrive with an extra margin of time to allow for this. The situation is clearly outwith our control and applies to ALL visitors.
The Uffizi Gallery is open 6 days a week (closed Mondays), opening at 8:15 AM and closing at 6:50 PM (staff begin to close the gallery from 6:35 PM). We recommend a visit of at least 2 hours, so last bookable time is set to 4:45 PM.
Usually, for most of June, July, August and September, there is later opening on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with closing time moving to 10:00 PM, and last entrance time of 8:00 PM.
Uffizi, ticket payment and pricing.
At all times we will refer to the full price of your ticket(s), and you will never be charged more than this ... just please be aware that the total charge includes booking fee. You will arrive with a paid-in-full voucher.
