Services at Uffizi Gallery

The Uffizi Gallery offers a variety of services to enhance your visit, including:

🎧Audio Guides:

Available in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese, audio guides provide an immersive and informative experience for visitors.

The cost for each set is €6.


The Uffizi Gallery has a cafe on the gallery’s second floor, which also offers restaurant service.

It is situated on the terrace above the Uffizi Loggia and offers a splendid view of the city and Palazzo Vecchio.

We highly recommend you stop there, even if you don’t wish to eat anything.

Visitors must hand in umbrellas, large bags, and backpacks at the cloakroom near the entrance.

Also, keep your drinks inside your backpack once you check in, as they are allowed inside the museum. 

There is no charge for the use of the cloakroom.


There are three museum shops, two at the entrance and another at the exit, where visitors can buy guidebooks in various languages and objects inspired by works in the gallery.

If you want more detailed information on the artworks, you can purchase art publications at one of the bookshops at the entrance.

We advise you to purchase souvenirs before leaving Uffizi because the bookshop has no separate entrance.

You will need a valid museum entry ticket. Hence, you can’t re-enter the bookshop after exiting.


The Uffizi Gallery offers opportunities for visitors with disabilities, including elevators and lifts near the entrance and exit and a wheelchair-accessible ramp.

Guided Tours:

 The Uffizi Gallery itself does not provide guided tours of the permanent collections.

But there are opportunities to visit on your own or purchase a guided tour from a third party for families with children and teenagers.

💁‍♀️Information Desk:

Visitors can find information desks throughout the gallery to help them navigate the exhibition and learn more about the art on display.

📮Post Office:

 At the Gallery exit, there is a post office that provides normal services such as currency exchange, postage of objects acquired at the museum shop, and collectors’ stamps.

Cafe/Terrace and External Access 

Cafe Terrace & External Access

A ramp on Via della Ninna leads down to the Arno, but the portico is only currently accessible from that ramp (there are steps around the entire portico). 

Currently, the Uffizi Museum is undergoing major renovations to improve everyone’s experience; access for disabled people will improve over time. 

Work will continue for several years, so conditions and services will change accordingly.

To access the cafe or terrace, use the stair lift; ask museum staff for assistance.
