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.
50 euros each, but got to skip the long line and a 1 1/2 hour tour inside.
Sail Date: October 2018
50 euros each, but got to skip the long line and a 1 1/2 hour tour inside. Very good guide (from the Bronx!!) and saw many famous paintings and learned quite a bit.

Outstanding opportunity to tour the Uffizi Museum. You could spend hours in this museum as there are so many treasures. Stop taking pictures and just enjoy the view!

Try to get tix as early in the day as possible. Not very crowded once you get in, but the line makes it looked mobbed.

“Refreshed,” we waited - again - to be herded like cattle into the Uffizi.
Sail Date: August 2014
“Refreshed,” we waited - again - to be herded like cattle into the Uffizi. Luckily, we splintered off with a smaller group of ten with a local, knowledgeable guide for a more personalized tour of the museum.

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
