Italy Trip: Uffizi Gallery

My wife and I got back a week ago from a 10-day anniversary trip to Italy! On the day we left Florence for the coast, we bought early morning tickets for the world famous Uffizi Gallery. Here are some photos:

In the courtyard between the gallery buildings before it opened.

My wife heading up.

Because we were there early, we had many places to ourselves!

"Diptych of Federico da Montefeltro and Battista Sforza" by Piero della Francesca.

"Spring" by Botticelli.

"The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli.

This room was amazing.

Still pretty quiet as we worked our way through.

"The Baptism of Christ" by DaVinci.

"The Madonna of the Goldfinch" by Raphael.

"Tondo Doni" by Michelangelo (his only surviving easel painting).

"Madonna of the Pear" by Durer.


"Portrait of a Young Man" by Rembrandt.

The view of the Ponte Vecchio from the Gallery.
(Our hotel was basically attached to Uffizi behind that construction to the right.)

"Judith Beheading Holofernes" by Artemisia Gentileschi.

"Medusa" by Caravaggio. (I didn't realize how convex it was,
and my wife snapped a photo of me inspecting it.)

Selfie on the way out!

Picasso on Hard Work
