Because so many people ask questions about this, I have asked admin to make the subject a 'Sticky'
You should really post this again as a new question on the forum. You will get more answers. You should also look at 'One day in Florence' for ideas.
Can anyone tell me if this site is for real - www.florence-tickets.com?
I have booked tickets as I thought it was the official site (www.uffizi.org), but am worried that I have bought non-legit tickets?
Booking a ticket over the phone is a better option. We were checking the official website last night and and it showed tickets are already Sold Out on the day we plan to visit Uffizi. I successfully booked a reservation over the phone and I did not have to give out CC details.
Couldn't agree more, Kristine.
Does anybody know if we are required to pay 4 euros reservation fee for a baby <1 year at Uffizi ?
No, that won't be necessary.
Those thinking of purchasing the Firenze card for admission to museums and attractions should be aware of two important facts:
(1) there are frequently reduced rate admissions for those over 65 and
(2) students under the age of 18 may be admitted free to a number of places upon presentation of proper proof of status, e.g., copy of passport and copy of student ID.
If you fall into either one of these categories, you may still be able to make advance ticket reservations through the museum website and bypass some of the lines.
I just booked tickets to the Uffizi through the official website (I used the link from the article). Everything ran smoothly. I was able to book two tickets for August 14 at 4pm. They were 15 Euro each. I just have one wondering. On my confirmation it says "Galleria degli Uffizi Intero/Full (Block 16:00, Row 2, Seat 4056)" Why does it say a row and seat number? I'm pretty sure I booked the correct thing, as I read everything and followed the website exactly and carefully before confirming, but this one thing makes me question myself.
I think this is just the nuts and bolts on the website have not been updated. Don't worry, just take the confirmation letter with you when you go to the office.
