How Do You Visit The Uffizi Gallery?
One of the world’s premier art museums, the Uffizi Gallery specializes in primitive and Renaissance paintings. Though primarily known for its collection of Italian art, including works by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo and Caravaggio, the works of German, Dutch and Flemish masters are also prominent, such as Durer, Rubens and Rembrandt.
