THE UFFIZI GALLERY IN FLORENCE

written by Antony Red

Ostuni città bianca

This region is one of the most astonishing ones in Italy for me, especially in spring. This wide and beautiful landscape with its small hills everywhere and the sparkling sun!

When entering into the Tuscan capital and going to our hotel, we passed through the narrow streets along the Arno river. On our first day in Florence, we went to the Uffizi Gallery and we immediately realized that it had been a good idea to call there before to book a tourist guide within this huge museum as we saw the large queues.

The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important art museums in Europe and is housed in the Palazzo degli Uffizi, a building made for the famous Italian family Medici. Significant masterpieces of the most outstanding artists, well- known all over the world, are accommodated in the Uffizi Gallery. Our guided tour lasted more than three hours and nonetheless, we were not able to see the whole gallery.

The gallery with its 40 halls – each dedicated to an artist or an artistic era - has a lot to see, from Dürer over Botticelli to Leonardo da Vinci. The most impressive work for me was Botticelli`s „The Birth of Venus“.
