It saved time and allowed us to book a time to visit the museums we wanted, I recommend it.
Use tour transport pass to Fiesole to see best view over of Florence. It is the no. 7 bus from Piazza San Marco.
Damiano with Dark World tours was awesome. Best guide we've had on this trip. Thanks!
However, there were too many people when we visited the Sistine Chappell and Vatican museum. It really should be limited, even if it meant a small increase in price.
At some points it was truly chlostrophobic and sometimes the audio system was corrupted by another guide.
In conclusion the Rome experience was very good, but I had to remark re the Vatican visit.
This pass allowed our group to skip the long lines to all major events.
And, most importantly, the price was right !
Excellent purchase !
The girl in the kiosk was very helpful and we booked the museum times and the return bus to the airport with the discounts very helpful
This pass is a decent value, although we didn't use all of its benefits. If you're going to the Academia to see the David, it's worth having for ticket pre-purchase and skip-the-line value. When you pick up the tickets at the kiosk, I suggest scheduling the Academia visit for an early morning, at the first available time. Show up early to the ticket window across the street from the museum entrance. The street is plugged with lines withing a couple of hours.
As both of us are over 65 and get into most museums free, it seemed a bit pointless.
You get 2 90min bus passes with this package which comes in handy. You can also get tickets to museums you do not want a tour from which was great. The lady in the office who helped us out was very helpful.
Ran out of time to use the pass and we couldn't get into the museum we wanted for 2 days so for us it ended up being a waste of money. We needed to have booked in advance for our museum of choice, so make sure you do so or you could miss out.
Had to upgrade to get into Uffizi.
DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS PASS...WORST EVER HAD.
A useless waste of money and time. The discounts were not worth the effort to get the Florence card, key attractions didn't accept it, and the lines were still long. The management of access in Florence is horrible with multiple queues to gain entry to a single attraction. A pity for such a great city.
I did not receive any value from this Florence pass. I was asked to select one of two museums that I wanted to visit. When I selected it was not available for another two days when this was my only day to be in Florence. I was not advised in advance that we needed to reserved our selection in advance. When I advised the rep at the office she agreed this was common. I settled on the other museum that was available for this day and was given a voucher with instructions on when and where to pick up my tickets (15 mins.) prior to entry. When I arrived at the museum and stood in line to pick up tickets, I was told that I needed to get my tickets from the guide outside. Keep in mind I was never advised it was a guided tour. The guide outside sent me to another guide who was doing the English speaking tour. Only that person told me they were not the correct tour group after reading my voucher. They took me to a different gate and told me to wait there for my guide. There was another couple there also waiting with a voucher from the same company, with a different gate and time provided. When we found no guide and asked other museum staff they said the guide usually shows up around 4:00 pm, which was 45mins after we were scheduled tot meet. Approx.. 30 mins past entry time, there was still no guide to be found. This was a total waste of my time when I only had such a short time in the city. I eventually gave up and continued my self guided sightseeing. No museum included thanks to this company. Next I wanted to purchase discounted train tickets for Rome and Milan as provided in the pass package. I was told that I had to pay full price at the ticket window because it was after 6pm. I was never told there was a cut off time to be eligible for the ticket discount. And finally I understood the pass to include free local bus travel. I was given a ticket for only 90 mins of local service. Again, there was no restrictions advised in the description for this pass. Waste!
