The magnificent art museum is located adjacent to the Piazza della Signoria in the heart of Florence, Italy. The Uffizi Gallery host visitors from across the globe and offer a sight at the collection of priceless artworks.
The tourist attraction was once the home of the Medici.
Anna Maria Luisa, the last heiress of the family, had an important role in the negotiations between her family and the city of Florence. All the paintings were gifted to the city, and Uffizi became a museum in 1865.
The construction of the Uffizi complex was started by Giorgio Vasari in 1560, its sole purpose was to accommodate each of the offices of the Florentine magistrates. As time went by, parts of the palace were used for art exhibitions. Sources reveal that Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and other artists visited the Uffizi to enjoy its beauty, work and recreate.
