How to book Florence museums.. without loosing money!

Today I wish to write about the lots of on line booking musuems websites that like cheating tourists.
It happens very often that clients come to my reception desk at Antica Dimora Firenze asking me indications and informations about the Uffizi gallery and Academy gallery and I always ask them if they already made advance booking to avoid the long lines for getting into the musuems. Sometimes happens that they made the booking through the many websites that you can find on the web. Avoid these travel web agencies as you’ll pay at least plus 50% more for each ticket.
The official museum website is the Polo Museale and only through this web site you’ll be able to purchase your tickets sure that all will be done without cheating you!
The cost of ticket entrance for the Uffizi and Academy gallery is 6.50 euro per person per museum and during special exhibitions the cost is 10 euro, the reservation fee is 4 euro per person per museum .
You have special reductions: 50% reduction for European Union citizens aged 18 to 25 and for eligible educators.

What we do at Antica Dimora Firenze is to take care for our clients of their musuem reservation. They write us an email asking for their favourite day and time and we do all the rest, then…once they check in they find their voucher in their room. Easy, isn’t it?
