The gallery is open for visitors from Tuesday to Sunday; its opening hours are 8:15 AM to 6:30 PM.
This museum is open throughout the year, but we recommend going there in autumn or winter, when there are fewer tourists around. For the same reason, we recommend visiting the gallery on weekdays, early in the morning, or after 4:00 PM.
The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most famous and revered museums in Italy and worldwide. So, what makes it special?
You can find this gallery at the heart of Florence, next to Piazza della Signoria. The gallery sits between the river Arno and Palazzo Vecchio; you can also see Ponte Vecchio nearby. You can easily reach the Uffizi Gallery by train, bus, or on foot. For example, there is a shuttle bus from the Amerigo Vespucci airport to the Santa Maria Novella train station. From there, the museum is just a 10-minutes walk away from the station.
Regular tickets cost €12. Children under 18 can enter freely. Additionally, you can book a ticket for a specific time slot on the official website. In that case, the ticket costs only €4.
