Uffizi Gallery, adjacent to the Municipal Square, is one of the best art galleries in Italy, and even Europe. The gallery was originally the official residence of the Medici family. The entire, giant, palace-sized building took over 20 years to complete.
The gallery contains almost all of the Medici family's art collection. The Artwork nearly spans the entire history of art, from ancient Greek sculptures to 18th-century Venetian paintings. There are also many original master works, including Michelangelo's "Holy Family", Raphael's "23-year-old self-portrait", and Da Vinci's "Adoration of the Magi".

The Galleria degli Uffizi, located in Piazza della Signoria, is a large palace-like building that was built in 1560 and was not completed until 1581. It is now one of the most famous art museums in Europe and the world. There are a large number of rare treasures in the collection, and it is also a place that many art lovers yearn for.
The two most successful paintings by the Florentineist artist Sandro Botticelli in the early Renaissance: "The Birth of Venus" and "Spring" are all collected in the Uffizi Gallery. "Spring" was created in 1477. It was written by Botticelli with the poet Polizio and the long poem of Venus, which was created by Medici Villa. The artist used his rich imagination and superb skills to bring ancient mythological stories to life. At the top right of the picture, Fengshen embraces the spring god, and the spring god embraces the flower god. The flower god who spreads the flowers scatters the flowers to the earth; Venus stands in the middle of the picture, and the goddess cupid hands the angel of love flying on her head. On the right side of Venus is the three beautiful gods who danced hand in hand and symbolized "Gorgeous", "Shu Shu" and "Happy". On the far left of the picture is the special envoy of the main god Zeus, Mercury. The whole painting has smooth lines, bright colors and a pleasant atmosphere.
