The Uffizi Gallery contains paintings from the 1200s to recent days from Italy and other European regions. The Uffizi holds an interesting collection “statuaria” from the 3rd century AC up to the 1800s. The Uffizi displays masterpieces from: Botticelli’s paintings including his Birth of Venus; Filippo Lippi and his son Filippino, Leonardo including The Baptism of Christ; Caravaggio – the Bacchus, the Head of Jellyfish, the Sacrifice of Isac; Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo; Cimabue, Giotto and Duccio.

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus is a must see painting as no photo can capture its true impact.
