THE UFFIZI GALLERY IN FLORENCE 

Florence is famous all over the world for being the cradle of the Renaissance and for its museums which house masterpieces of the most important artists of all time. Among its museums, the most important and the most famous in the world is the Uffizi Gallery.

The Uffizi Gallery boasts the most beautiful art collection in the world and the palace housing it is the first public museum in history.
The first time I entered this museum I had the feeling I hadn’t enough time to see all the works of art I wanted; whereas the second time I made a selection and I focused only on the works I considered to be unmissable.
In this post I collected the pictures of the masterpieces you must see if you visit the Uffizi Gallery.
And when you exit this museum, don’t say that you haven’t seen the most important works of art 😉

All you have to do is visit the ticketing official website for State Florentine Museums (pay attention to unofficial sites you can find on the Web!): http://www.b-ticket.com/b-ticket/uffizi/info_venue.aspx. Unfortunately, I couldn’t book online because it seemed that there were no tickets. So, I called the call centre and I easily booked my visit choosing the day and the time I wanted.
