The city of Florence has a special tourist card, the Firenze Card. It is valid for 72 hours and provides you priority admission to museums, villas and historical gardens located in Florence and surroundings (all the most important are included).
Firenze Card has also other versions: the Firenze Card Plus and the Firenze Card Restart. Let's see in detail what they offer: the basic Firenze Card costs € 85, is valid for 72 hours (from the entrance to the first museum) and allows priority access to museums and monumental sites in and around Florence; most of them without reservation.
Every card includes free access to museums for children and under 18 citizens belonging to the family of the cardholder. The activation of the card starts with the first use. The holder must personalize the Card (not transferable) with his name and surname.
It is possible to buy it online, by downloading the Firenze Card App on Google Play or Itunes Stores, and enter the voucher number received after purchasing… then start your visit as soon as you like! You can also purchase/collect it from a series of museums and info points, either by credit card or by cash, just check where to go from the list of sales/collection points.
Reservations with Firenze Card:
Priority entrance to Uffizi and Galleria dell'Accademia is only possible by a reservation (no extra charge) at an appointed time. It can be done by phone (calling the Firenze Musei ph. +39 055 294883), or in person at: Orsanmichele reservation desk (via de' Calzaiuoli, open Mon-Fri 9am-3pm and Sat 10am-4pm), My Accademia bookshop (temporarily closed) or Uffizi ticket offices (door no. 2 or 3, open Tue-Sun - 8:30am-5:30pm).
As for the Firenze Card + (Firenze Card Plus), it entitles you to travel on all local bus lines and tramways for 72 hours (from the first validation on the bus at the beginning of the first journey). Thanks to several commercial partners, it offers you discounts and promotions for restaurants, shops, and shows. The Firenze Card Plus costs € 7 and can be purchased only together with the basic Firenze Card.
Finally, the Firenze Card Restart is a new tool! It costs € 28 and allows Firenze Card holders to reactivate their card - after expiration, within a year - for further 48 hours. Firenze Card Restart - can be purchased exclusively online and will allow you to access to all those places you had not been able to visit in the first 72 hours.
ATTENTION: GIVEN THE ONGOING EMERGENCY MUSEUMS APPLY ALL NATIONAL AND REGIONAL RULES TO COUNTERACT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS, SO OPENING TIMES AND ACCESS TO PLACES OF INTEREST WITH FIRENZE CARD HAVE CHANGED.
