What travelers say:

The Uffiz Museum of Art is a world-famous painting museum. Because it is too famous, there are always long lines at the door. We have been waiting for a long line to get in. We were hungry in the middle. We also bought a sandwich "blind box". Why is it called a blind box? Because this sandwich shop also has a long line. Each guest can choose the ingredients and sauces according to their taste, all marked in Italian, we can't understand the ingredients, the sauces can't understand, I took the small blackboard at the door, chose the formula they recommended, the taste is still quite good. There are many famous paintings in the gallery. It is said that interested students can see them for a week. We belong to the level of the layman. It is recommended to see the museum of art galleries in Europe and the United States, to do a lot of homework in advance, otherwise really do not understand.

Additional Information

Introduction

Adjacent to the Plaza Mayor, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the best in Italy and even in Europe. It exhibits the private collections of the Medici family, including Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" and "Spring", Leonardo da Vinci Qi "Annunciation" and other works. The Uffizi Gallery was originally the official residence of the Medici family. It was built in 1560, and the entire huge palace-style building was not completed until 1581. Since Cosimo I, the Medici family has been keen on art and sponsored many masters, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Donatello, etc., so there are rich works of art by the masters here, and Most of the works of art collected by the Medici family for generations are also placed here. The entire art museum has more than 100,000 exhibits, and the collection is very extensive, covering almost the entire history of art, from ancient Greek sculptures to 18th century Venetian oil paintings. It is divided into more than 90 exhibition halls according to the creation time and creation genre. Among the many exquisite buildings in Florence, the appearance of the Uffizi Gallery is not eye-catching. The white main facade has three arched gates, which are simple and atmospheric. The Arno River flows quietly in front of the gate, which is quite artistic. Located on the second and third floors of the main building of the Uffizi Palace, the second floor is the National Library, which houses many rare documents about the city's history, as well as new exhibitions including paintings by Caravaggio, Reni and Nodi Room, the third floor is the essence of the art gallery. The collection of the Uffizi Gallery is amazing. If you want to see every exhibition hall, one day is not enough, so you can pre-select the artists you are interested in or the works of a certain period and visit them in a focused manner.
