Much of the Uffizi's collection was once owned by the Medici family, a member of which originally commissioned the building in 1560. The Uffizi houses a stunning collection of Renaissance and medieval painting and sculpture, including priceless works from other periods, and provides a wonderful overview of Italy's artistic heritage - the thousands of works of art encompass Greek and Roman sculptures, Renaissance and Baroque paintings, including iconic works such as Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Titian's Venus of Urbino.

However it is not, relatively speaking, a large museum, so gets incredibly crowded in high season. Queues can line up around the block and back. If you do find yourself here between May and September, it is imperative that you pre-book a ticket, preferably for first thing in the morning, and that you allow yourself plenty of time to get around, as you will be dodging tour groups. Also try to prepare, so you know what you are going to see.
