Housing works from the likes of Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, Da Vinci, Velazquez, Caravaggio, and Michelangelo, the world famous Uffizi Gallery has brought travellers and locals alike to the helms of its artistic Mecca since time immemorial. Built in 1581 as public office space, it’s no surprise that the biggest collection of Italian renaissance is held in regal and romantic Florence, where time seemingly stands still. Whiling away a day among Italy’s most prized treasures at the Uffizi Gallery is a must-do for travellers to this city. The beauty of Uffizi isn’t just within the walls though, but beyond them. A stroll to the entrance of the gallery shows off exquisite symmetrical pillars and a sumptuous detailed design that’s lasted more than 500 years. Heralded by artists the world over, a visit to Uffizi is a not-to-be-missed Florentine experience.
