One of the most famous museums in the world, the Uffizi Gallery boasts exceptional collections of paintings and ancient sculptures. Among the paintings dating back to the 14th century and Renaissance period, plenty of masterpieces such as by Giotto, Simone Martini, Piero della Francesca, Beato Angelico, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Mantegna, Correggio, Leonardo, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, as well as by pre-eminent German, Dutch and Flemish painters. The invaluable collection of statues and busts adorning the corridors was gathered by the Medici family and is made up of Roman copies after lost Greek originals. Originally built to host the administrative offices of the Medici's government, today the Gallery is located on the last floor of the imposing building constructed between 1560 and 1580 after a design by Giorgio Vasari.
