A walk through the artwork
Home to one of the largest collections of Renaissance art in the world, the Uffizi gallery boasts of classic work from world-famous artists like Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci. Spread across two floors, the gallery takes pride in its 45 halls of artworks ranging from Botticelli’s Primavera and Birth of Venus to Titian’s Venus of Urbino and Filippo Lippi’s Madonna and Child with Two Angels.
