Galleria degli Uffizi Florence Reviews
One among the best galleries in Europe Aug 29, 2011
Uffizi is one of the biggest, best and well-known galleries or museums of art in Europe and in the world. Right next to Prado (Madrid), Louvre (Paris), Hermitage (St. petersburg), Tate gallery (London. More about them you can find at this link: http://www.artinfo.com/galleryguide/europe/
It's too big to see it all, so preparations are a must.
Few basic tricks:
- visit the website and make a reservation for your ticket prior to coming to Firenze http://www.uffizi-gallery.info/
- if you skipped the first step, be there at the entrance as early as possible to avoid the long waiting lines (they will only take toe on your time and nerves, and believe me - you don't either want nor need that before you enter this lovely jewel)
- if the waiting lines are longer than approx. 30 meters - don't hesitate; buy direct ticket from the salesman in yellow T-shirts (official sale - costs are a bit higher - entrance fee is 11,00 €, here you will pay 19,00 €, but won't need to wait in long line)- saves your time and your energy.
First check out how the gallery is positioned, what do you like the most, what do you really want to see. Plan before entering. Some things are incredible, develop your own system how to see as much as possible; if you are a true art fan, you will need day or two to see it whole. I Recommend.
Experience of a life time.
