Explore Uffizi Gallery

Built in 1560, the Uffizi Gallery was initially made to accommodate the offices of the Florentine magistrate. This is why the word "Uffizi", which is derived from ‘offices’, was used as its official name. After the completion of the complex in 1581, the top floor of the building was made into a museum for its tenants and guests who wished to view the Roman sculptures up close. Between the sixteenth and seventeenth century, the Hall of Geographic Maps (dedicated to maps of the Medici domains in Florence), as well as the Mathematics Room (containing important scientific discoveries from that period), were built inside the gallery. Today Uffizi boasts of an impressive collection of artworks dating back hundreds of centuries.

  • Second Floor: The second floor of the museum has a collection adorned within its 45 halls, including artworks from the 13th to 18th centuries.

"Laocoön and his Sons" by Baccio Bandinelli

Known as the Laocoon Group, the sculpture by Baccio Bandinelli is deemed as one of the most famous ancient sculptures to have been excavated in Rome. Although the original sculpture stands in Vatican City today, Bandinelli especially created a miniature for Uffizi Gallery.

"Venus of Urbino" by Titian

Placed in Room number 28, Venus of Urbino is considered to be one of the most sensual paintings by Titian, and it was later recreated in several copies around the world. Although the painting represents an allegory of marriage, many claim that it had several hidden meanings and undertones due to its wise use of color as well as contrast.
