The renowned Uffizi Gallery at the Palazzo degli Uffizi is home to Italian masterpieces from the Medieval period to the Modern, with an unrivalled collection of Renaissance art by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Raffaello and Caravaggio. The original project with plans to demolish at least 43 houses and towers in order to build the new palace of the “Uffici” or offices was shelved as Cosimo de’ Medici, the first Grand Duke of Tuscany, realized that this would be too expensive, but eventually they were incorporated into the new construction by architect Giorgio Vasari. The Piazza degli Uffizi is usually crowded during the summer with outdoor exhibitions, street artists and performers who entertain tourists queuing up to get in. To avoid the long waiting times, it is advisable to book Skip the Line tickets well in advance.
