Museum Pass in Florence?

by Jefie

Does anyone know if there is something like a museum pass available for Florence? If so, could you please provide the link to the Website? Thank you!

Re: Museum Pass in Florence?

Well, not a pass exactly.....

For 60 euro (aaargh!) you can become a 'friend' of the Uffizi and get free entrances to lots of places

http://www.amicidegliuffizi.it/become_a_member.aspx

But, to be honest, imo you'd be better off just paying for entrances to those places you want to see (unless you intend to visit all the places on the 'friends' list).

You can book tickets in advance online here, and skip the queues (always long for the Uffizi and Accademia):

excellent suggestion by leics to use the official website of Florence museums, the polo museale fiorentino.

The 4 Euro Online Ticket Reservation (on top of ticket price) is worth it to avoid lines at entrance.

Because just visiting the Uffizi took all my energy... there is so much there that I came out feeling weak, really.

Thank you, ladies! I don't think I'll be visiting 60 Euros worth of museums, but booking ahead does sound like a good idea.

Benvenuta, Isa! I had not seen your homepage, didn't know you're from Québec. That's my hometown too! :)

I'll be driving around Tuscany at the end of May for 12 days, maybe see you on the Piazza in Lucca!

That would be so much fun! Keep an eye out for a French-speaking redhead :o)

Travel Tips for Florence

Learn Italian

by carolalemke

Florence is a beautiful city with so many monuments to see: Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, The Uffizi, and so on. The centre of Florence is full of magnificent history and culture, but also if you walk a little bit outside you can find beautiful places like the village Fiesole (you have a beautiful view of Florence!). I recommend everybody who stays a little bit longer in Italy to make an Italian language course. It is so great when you go out of school to hear and understand the Italian people. I make an intensive course at the Leonardo da Vinci school and it was really great. The teachers were fantastic and I have learned a lot.

The beautiful works of art...

by Barbara2

The beautiful works of art inside the Uffizi (travelogue samples 2 pieces) must compete with the sights of the Uffizi courtyard, its tower, the Dome of the Duomo and Florence beyond which lie outside the windows.

Lucca.

by Maurizioago

Lucca is a beautiful town located 85 km. west of Florence. It was the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini; the famous music composer. His house is open to visitors.

This town is surrounded by defence walls; 12 meters tall. The current walls were built between 1544 and 1650. These can be walked or cycled. The path there is paved.

The main square of Lucca is Piazza Anfiteatro. It can't really be defined a square, because it is elliptical. In fact it was built on the fundations of a Roman amphitheater. In this square there are various shops, some restaurants and cafes.

Lucca has many churches and a couple of palaces to visit. One of this is Palazzo Pfanner. Unfortunately I coudn't visit it the days I went to Lucca because it was closed.

The Beautiful Arno

by Jmill42 about Ponte Vecchio at night

The most beautiful memory of Florence itself, was the times I spent on Ponte Vecchio at dusk. Depending on the light and clouds, the reflections on the Arno River are something special. Pictures never do justice, and this holds true for mine. The best spot is either directly on the west side of the bridge in the middle, although everyone has the same idea. So, another spot is on the north side of the bridge just along the river to the west. Either way, you will be glad you came.

Best priced and tastiest panini in Florence!

by zogfield about I Tre Fratelli

This place is fantastic and a must for those wanting a quick, simple, but delicious sandwich in the middle of Florence for €2.50. The tiny, tiny 'hole-in-the-wall' style sandwich bar is located down a side street (off Florence's main shopping street, Via dei Calzaioli - connecting the Duomo to the Piazza della Signoria) and consists of a counter where two great guys prepare over 30 different types of panino - using many different types of salami, meats and cheese. You can also order a glass of wine here and place it on wooden racks on either side of the bar while you eat your sandwich. It's amazing how such a place can go unnoticed by the vast majority of tourists when it is so central! It really is tucked away into the wall though, and you'll only notice it by the large crowd of Italians hanging around it at lunchtime.
Highly recommended for a very tasty but inexpensive snack. And perhaps a glass of chianti or two. My personal favourite is number 15 - finocchiona (a Tuscan salami with fennel) and goat's cheese. They're all great though.
