After the success achieved on the occasion of the "Week of
culture", Florence opens the doors to art and history
allowing, for particular days of each month, free access to
some museums, a special event spread over the whole national
territory, you'll just need to pay attention to the different
free openings, which will change from museum to museum.
Look for the dates on the website of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage.
Besides the possibility of free access to some national museums and municipal art sites (in the latter case, for residents of the metropolitan area only), there is also the opportunity to book private guided tours, which will make this experience even more special and really unique.
During these days, the entry to some museums and cultural sites is free (for municipal ones, it's reserved for residents of the metropolitan area only) but, please don't forget that the entries to other museums, basilicas and historic buildings in Florence, which are not on the list, you'll need to purchase or to book the tickets.
The list of state museum and sites, with an indication of days with free admission, can be found at this address, while the Florentine civic museums are: Palazzo Vecchio Museum, Museo Novecento, Stefano Bardini Museum, Brancacci Chapel, Salvatore Romano Foundation and Museum of S. Maria Novella.
Don't miss this special opportunity! Take advantage of the free entrance of the state and municipal museums of Florence and book a private personal guided tour of the historical city center or of a private guided visit of the cultural site you'd like to see. Below, you will find information and suggestions for guided tours.
Free admission to the national museums, on certain days of
each month only, will allow you to enjoy the immense artistic
and cultural heritage preserved in the main art sites of
Florence: find the days on the website here above. This
important event, however, is also an opportunity to discover
the city with our guided visit. We can take you to a walk in
the historic center of Florence, an open-air museum, enjoying
ancient culture and history.
Only for this event, I'll apply reduced rates: starting from € 35 per person (minimum 5 people).
Here below, you will find one of the many proposals for a guided tour.
The tour of Florence, lasting about 2 hours, will start from the Column of Piazza della Repubblica and will take you to the Baptistery and the Duomo (only external visit), it will continue to the places where lived the “Sommo Poeta”, Dante Alighieri, like the Oratorio dei Buonomini of San Martino, via de 'Cerchi and the Church of Orsanmichele. Then, we'll reach the nearby Piazza della Signoria with its Palazzo Vecchio and the open-sky-museun of the “Lanzi's Loggia”.
