The Firenze Card provides a visitor to Florence, Italy, free admission to 33 museums, including the Uffizi and the Accademia, with entry to their permanent collections, special exhibitions and scheduled activities. While its price of €50 (near $71) may seem steep, cardholders can avoid queues and booking limitations and may use public transportation for free within the city.

Valid for 72 hours from its first use, the card can be used only once at each museum. For a list of participating museums and info on where to purchase the card or buying it online, visit www.firenzecard.it.
