What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Florence Uffizi Gallery Tickets

Skip the lines to enter the Uffizi Gallery in Florence

Wait lines outside Florence’s Uffizi Gallery are long, and queues can sometimes exceed two hours. Luckily for you, there’s no waiting in line with your skip-the-line ticket, so head straight inside and start exploring the incredible Uffizi Gallery at leisure.

The museum’s masterpieces are spread across some 45 different rooms inside the horseshoe-shaped Palazzo delgi Uffizi. Rammed to the rafters with artistic treasures, the gallery contains works from the times of Ancient Greece through to the 18th century, but it’s the Renaissance-era offerings that just about every visitor comes to see.

The rooms are arranged chronologically, so after weaving your way through early Renaissance gems by the likes of Fra Angelico and Giotto, amble through rooms dedicated to the big-name High Renaissance painters. Marvel at da Vinci’s Annunciation, featuring an angel and the Virgin Mary, and stand in admiration before Doni Tondo, a depiction of the holy family by Michelangelo.

See Venetian paintings by Titian, and then head upstairs to see incredible works by Caravaggio, one of the more unconventional artists of Italy’s famous Renaissance painters.

Most visitors find three hours sufficient to explore the masterpieces of the Uffizi Gallery, but you can actually stay inside for as long as you wish. Should you want to take a break from ogling the artwork, rest in the rooftop café and soak up views over the city. Food and drinks are at your own expense.

Must do to skip the round-the-block queues here in Summer. saved ourselves a good couple of hours and much stress. we still had to stand in a short line for about 10 minutes, but that is nothing in comparison to the normal ticket queue. A big plus is that you DON'T have a guided tour and you can enjoy this gallery at your own pace.

We actually missed our tour by about 15 minutes, but the local office sent an assistant to the museum with tickets for admission. We were so happy and relieved. Thank you to them!

This tour worked well with only a short wait to enter the Gallery, and was well worth paying extra to skip the line.

Worth it being able to skip the line! Just checked in the coordinator, got our tickets and went to Door 1 to await entry. We were only at Door 1 for about 5 minutes, and then we went in. Simple as that!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The art available for perusal is excellent and voluminous - I spent 3 hours and I was hurrying . One thing to keep in mind - if you start at the 2nd top floor and work your way down, you'll end up leaving on the ground floor going towards the exit and you'll realize that there's still lots to see on the way to the exit . This is a good thing, but be warned that you'll want to peruse that too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Skip the Line really expedited our Uffizi visit. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Florence who would rather look at incredible art than stand in line.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Using Viator to book and time our Uffizi tour was extremely helpful. We met the rep. outside Entrance 1 and were inside within 2 or 3 minutes. Thank you.
