We are visiting Florence for 8 days in late October.
This is the first of what will probably be a number of questions. I'm a bit of a planner!!!!
Of the places we would like to visit I notice in my guide it says that for the Biblioteca Medicea, special permission is needed to visit and only with a guided tour. Is it possible for an individual to visit and how do you arrange a tour? Or should I cross it off my list? I see from the forum that it has been closed in the past for visitors, is it still?
Also my guide says that to visit the Cappella Brancacci inside Chiesa Santa Maria del Carmine, advance reservation is required. Is this necessary for late October. I see from searching the forum that people have in the past said it is not necessary to make an advanced reservation out of season.
