In trying to plan what days to get advance museum
tickets for (forgive my grammar please), I am just
kind of up in the air about how many hours to expect
to spend in the Uffizi. I realize I could spend a week
there, but for the sake of others....can anybody give
me a clue? I'm thinking three to five hours.

I highly recommend that you go to this website: and
order tickets online to avoid lines. There are actually two lines- one almost
non-existent one for those with advance tickets and the other around the
corner (hours sometimes) to get in. You should also get advance tickets to The
Accademia. Even though it's tiny compared to the Uffizi, you could spend hours
just marveling at David and Michelangelo's other wonders! Another good
website is

The last couple of summers I had an apartment for the month of August in
Florence so I could paint in and around Florence. Although my apartment was
down the street from The Accademia, I got advanced tickets ALWAYS. If you go to
 Rome, NEVER wait in line for the Sistine Chapel. Instead, take the tour at
the side entrance. It is $10 additional with a guide and headphones. It's
worth every penny because you go to a special side entrance, walking right
past the HUGE lines! Florence is the best! Enjoy!
