The Uffizi Galleries

Housed in the stunning Palazzo degli Uffizi in Florence, Italy, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the oldest and most renowned art museums of the western world. The museum houses some of the world's most famous paintings, including Botticelli's The Birth of Venus and da Vinci's The Annunciation and The Adoration of the Magi. Reserve a car hire in Florence for your visit to this captivating museum and monument.

The Palazzo itself is a work of art, ornate in its construction in both large and small scale. Its internal courtyard is very long and narrow, designed to emphasize the perspective length by the matching facades' continuous roof cornices. The space is elegant as it opens up to the Arno river. The niches in the piers that alternate with columns are filled with sculptures of famous artists of the 19th century.

The gallery has been open to visitors by request since the sixteenth century, and in 1765 it was officially opened to the public. Over the years it has amassed such a huge collection that some of its works have been transferred to other museums in Florence. Book your Florence rental car online to explore the treasures here and in other Florence museums.

Today the Uffizi Galleries are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Florence. If you visit during the high season, especially during the month of July, you may face waiting times as much as five hours to enter the gallery. However, reserving your ticket in advance ensures a substantially shorter wait.
