Take a Virtual Tour of The Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the World-Famous Collection of Renaissance Art

The Uffizi Gallery in Flo­rence does­n’t par­tic­u­lar­ly need an intro­duc­tion, see­ing that it’s one of the most wide­ly-vis­it­ed muse­ums in Italy, the home of great artis­tic works from the Renais­sance. If you pay the Uffizi a vis­it, you can see Bot­ti­cel­li’s The Birth of Venus, Dür­er’s Ado­ra­tion of the Magi, Car­avag­gio’s Bac­chus, Michelan­gelo’s The Holy Fam­i­ly, and Rem­brandt’s Self-Por­trait as a Young Man. Or you could do the same by dial­ing up the Uffiz­i’s Vir­tu­al Tour, embed­ded above, or avail­able here. It’s essen­tial­ly a Google Street View tour of the entire muse­um. It’s admit­ted­ly a lit­tle tedious. But if you have a lot of time and a handy floor plan, you can still immerse your­self in a col­lec­tion that’s been enchant­i­ng vis­i­tors since the 18th cen­tu­ry.
