Peak Season vs Low Season

Florence gets the most visitors between May and September when the temperatures touch the sweet spot, 24 degree-Celsius. If you are not comfortable visiting a touristy Florence, avoid traveling during the peak season. The low season for tourism is from November to February, but keep in mind that the holiday season in December is hectic and crowded in Europe.

How Long Does It Take To Visit Uffizi Gallery?

With over 100 rooms and 13,000 square meters of exhibition spaces, the Uffizi is of the most famous art galleries in Italy. If you're planning on taking your time and enjoying the works on display at a leisurely pace, it's recommended to allocate at least 3-4 hours for your visit. This allows you to appreciate all the incredible artworks that fill each room as well as take in their history and stories.

However, if you’re short on time or simply don't have enough energy for such an exhausting task, it's still possible to get through the main highlights within two hours. This includes works by Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Giotto di Bondone, and many more legendary artists. But keep in mind that due to its popularity, Uffizi Gallery can get very overcrowded during peak season so plan your visit accordingly if you want to avoid long queues and delays.

Regardless of how much time you decide to spend there, it's sure to be an unforgettable experience that will leave you forever changed after being exposed to centuries-old works of art from some of the best minds this world has ever seen.
