Visits to Museums in Florence:

David de Miguel Angel, Florencia

Florence is famous for its museums. We list below the three most famous ones in order of importance and with a brief idea of their content. Our route has been thought out to make a single visit to one of them (2-3h), so if you wish to see them all, you will have to add another day to the route.

  • Galleria Degli Uffizi: it contains the world´s most important collection of Renaissance art with masterpieces by such renowned artists as Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Perugino and Raphael. Between the Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio. It opens from Tuesday to Sunday from 08:15 to 18:50. Entry 8€ (adicional charges in case of unordinary exhibits). Discounts for young people from the EU aged 18-25 years old and free for those under 18 and over 65, if citizens of the EU. The queues are endless, which is why we suggest that you buy your ticket in advance despite an extra charge of 4€. Enter the official webpage and buy online (do not go to other websites as they are always more expensive) or once in Italy, ring the official phoneline of the museums of Florence (055 294883) where you can book in your own language (you only have to say the day and time you want to go).
  • Galleria dell'Academia: famous for possessing the original David by Michelangelo as well as other sculptures by the artist. Between the Piazza Della S.S. Annunziata and the Piazza San Marco. It opens from Tuesday to Sunday from 08.15 to 18.50. Admission 8€ (discounts for young EU residents (18-25) and free for EU citizens under 18 and over 65). The ticket queue is also very long but not like at the Uffizi. You can also buy your ticket in advance from the official web page and go straight in.
  • Palazzo Pitti: the biggest palace in Florence, and residence of the Medici family. Different galleries with independent entrances which we willset out below in order of interest: Palatine Gallery (royal apartments and Works by the most famous Renaissance artists, 8€ including entrance to the Gallery of Modern Art and the entrance to the Costume Gallery), Boboli Gardens (7€ including entrance to Museum of Porcelain). The queues are not so long here so you do not need to buy your ticket in advance. The first Sunday of the month is free.
