Florence (Livorno) Uffizi Museum Excursion Reviews

The Uffizi Gallery houses one of the greatest collections of mostly Italian paintings in the world, including Botticelli's famous Birth of Venus and exquisite 13th- and 14th-century paintings.

One of 3 we booked independently of the cruise line. We booked skip-the-line tickets and had to plan our visit to the minute for arrival as the window for entry is about 15-minutes. Another must see in Florence.

Florence on Your Own – Adult Only DepartureWe booked this transportation to Florence through DCL. The port was La Spezia, not Livorno. Florence is extremely busy, so we decided to walk around, see the major sights and visit the Uffizi gallery (which is sadly not well organized). PLAN what to see, and skip the rest. There is just too much to see, so get a guidebook, or an audio guide podcast. The museum audio guide is terrible, and sometimes the description did not fit the paintings. Florence is naturally very beautiful, so more than 1 day is needed. Read Less
