Since 2011, Florence has an integrated museum pass called the Firenzecard. It allows (for one person) admission to the city's major museums, villas and historical gardens, it grants a visit to permanent collections, temporary exhibitions and other activities held in these museums.
If this wasn't enough, Firenzecard also means no queues and reservation requirements (except for the Cupola of the Duomo, which requires reservation), free admission for those under 18 years of age who are members of the same family unit of the Firenzecard holder and European Union citizens.
The Card costs 72 € and lasts 72 hours/3 days from its first use (meaning: first visit to a museum).
Together with the Firenzecard, you can also purchase Firenzecard+, which grants you free use of the city public transport for 3 days, 1 Firenzecard+ bag, 1 museum guide, and other special discounts and offers. Firenzecard+ costs an additional 5 € on top of the price of the regular Firenzecard.
Since museums in Italy are run by different entities (State, Province, City, private.), it was a challenge to create this pass! However, the challenge was won and now there are 72 museums included in the Card and they are all written here: on a list and on a map!
On the official site , there are also “EVENTS” and “NEWS” pages, so you can check for updated timetables, review your benefits and get other information, like all the possible activities and events going on that are included in the price of the Card! The Card can be bought directly on line or can be purchased in one of sales points in town. Enjoy your stay in Florence and make the most of it!
