Florence – Avoid the Summer Queue

Florence Travelers Museum Access with Firenze Card

The Firenze Card is a 72 hour card that gives you free admission to the major museums in Florence. You will have access not only to permanent collections, but also to exhibitions and all other activities held in that museum without further cost. You just show your card at the entrance to the museum.  The card can be used once only in each museum.

FirenzeActivating the Firenze Card The Firenze Card is activated on the first visit to a museum or the first use of public transport. After that you have 72 hours to visit the city and its historical and artistic heritage. The card’s validity is therefore independent of the purchase date. Remember to write your full name on the back of your card before using it. The Firenze Card is valid one month after the collection. To use the Firenze Card on the city public transport (buses and tram) you have only to validate the Firenze Card ticket, that you find inside the kit, the first time you take the bus.

Validity The Firenze Card is valid for 3 consecutive days from its first use. The card will expire at the end of the validity period and free access to museums and public transport will expire with it. The card is strictly for personal use and not transferable, and must be shown with proof of identity on request.

Museum Admission In addition to free admission, the Firenze Card allows you to avoid long queues at the ticket offices of main museums. Just look for the sign “Firenze Card” in your chosen museums and show your card to gain entrance.
