Help with booking reservations for the Uffizi in mid-July

Just tried to book reservations for the Uffizi Gallery on July 17/18 with selectitaly.com and found out that it is sold out!

Does anyone have alternative options for trying to book tickets in advance?

Thanks for your help.

I am afraid July is the height of the tourist season and the Uffizi is, righly, a must see place. Sadly early bookung is desirable - my wife and I will be in Florence the last week in September and we booked our tickets for the Uffizi in April. Have you tried the Uffizi's own website www.uffizi.firenze.it or telephoned 055 23885?

www.florenceart.it/booking also has a good reputation for entrance tickets.

Good luck

Thanks for the quick replies and good advice. I got lucky and just booked reservations through florenceart.com for both the Uffizi and the Academica for Sunday, July 17th. I allowed 2-3 hours for the Uffizi and 1-2 for the Academica. Does this seem reasonable? Our time is limited and we are traveling with a young child so hope this will allow us to check out the "major sights " and at least get a "feel" for the museums. Hopefully, we will return for a more leisurely visit at another time. A

Any tips/suggestions would be welcomed!

Thanks again.

It sounds very reasonable allotting of time. When I visited the Uffizzi with my son, he was 3 and slept all the time in his stroller, which made our visit much more enjoyable all around. Now he's 6 and we've taken to do the "who can spot a___in the picture?" when we visit a museum, and that also makes for very nice museum outings.

Enjoy your visit !!
