Galleria degli Uffizi

A dip into one of the world's greatest art galleries
A full tour of the magnificent Uffizi Gallery, housed in what were once the administrative offices of the Medici family, is a major undertaking which requires a minimum of half a day and a lot of energy. However, if you pinpoint a few ‘unmissable’ paintings, you can be in and out in an hour or so and still be blown away. My personal ‘don’t-miss’ list includes: The three ‘Maestàs’ by Giotto, Cimabue and Duccio (Room2); Gentile da Fabriano’s Adoration of the Magi and other glowing 14th and 15th century paintings from the Sienese school (Rooms 3,5 & 6); Masolino and Masaccio ( Room 7); the cream of the crop, the iconic Botticellis in Room 10.
