Is it worth buying the Firenze Card?

Well, first of all, it’s worth clarifying that our goal is not to say ‘buy’ or ‘don’t buy’ the Firenze Pass. The purchase of this card will vary from case to case. Since the card includes public transport, it will be little used if your hotel, for example, is in the city center, since most attractions are there. Anyway, today we are going to talk a little about the Firenze Card and do some math to help you decide whether or not it is worth buying it. Let’s understand if it is worth buying the Firenze Card? Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

2) Is it worth buying the Firenze Card? GET TO KNOW THE AUTHORIZED ENTRIES

Authorized entry is only restricted to the Dome of Brunelleschi, which is in the Cathedral; to be able to visit the place it is necessary to schedule the visit at the Museo dell’Opera (Museum of the Works), at the box office; the Card is PERFECT for those who do not want to queue, especially in most visited places such as Chiesa di Santa Maria Novella (Church of Santa Maria Novella), Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio (Vecchio Palace) and Palazzo Pitti (Pitti Palace).

For another 5 Euros, you can purchase the Firenze Card Plus, which allows the use of unlimited transportation within Florence, free Wi-Fi, with a limit of one hour of use per day and discounts at some stores affiliated with the Firenze Card program. For children and minors, there is the possibility of using the free public transport when accompanied by parents or guardians who have the Firenze Card Plus.

3) Is it worth buying the Firenze Card? GET TO KNOW THE ATTRACTIONS, PRICES AND ADVANTAGES

Well, let’s get straight to the point? The math!

Below we gather the main attractions and the ticket prices per attraction:

  • Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross): 8 Euros
  • Medici Chapels: 8 Euros
  • Cathedral of Florence: 18 Euros
  • Galleria dell’Accademia (Accademia Gallery) : 8 Euros
  • Uffizi Gallery: 20 Euros
  • Palazzo Pitti (Pitti Palace): 16 Euros
  • Palazzo Vecchio (Vecchio Palace): 10 Euros
  • Public transport: 1.20 Euro (consider round trip = 2.40 Euros, for three days = 7.20)
  • Total attractions plus public transport: 95.20 Euros.

Benefits

  • Considering that the Basic Firenze Card costs 85 Euros, the savings are 10.00 Euros, and if you add more monuments the savings will increase!
  • The most interesting thing is that you will not face kilometer lines if you have the Firenze Card in hand.

4) Is it worth buying the Firenze Card? SOME SUGGESTIONS

Here are some of my suggestions for whether or not to buy the Firenze Card. Evaluate the best alternative for you not to regret.

I SUGGEST to buy the Firenze Card:

  • For those who will stay at least 3 days in Florence.
  • For those who want to avoid huge lines; ATTENTION: I am not saying that you will not get in line; some attractions ALWAYS have a line, but it won’t take hours to buy tickets and wait to get in.
  • If your hotel is not in the center and you will have to use public transport.

I DON’T SUGGEST to buy the Firenze Card:

  • For those who will be staying in Florence for a maximum of 2 days.
  • For those who do not intend to visit so many museums. Make a list before purchasing the Firenze Card and see if it is worth it in your case; if you intend to visit two or three monuments, I advance: it is not worth it!
  • If you are in the historic center, for up to two days, and you will not be using public transport.

Hotels I recommend in the Historic Center

In the Historic Center (Old Town), is really easy to admire all the main attractions of the city very easily. The old town of Florence corresponds to the oldest and most beautiful part of the city. If you want to stay in the real heart of Florence, choose hotels in the central areas of Piazza Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Cathedral, Gallery of Offices, etc.

Hotels that I recommend in Oltrarno

Always staying very close to the Historic Center, you can also stay in Oltrarno, close to the most characteristic craft shops in the whole city and much more. The area is perfect for those who want quiet accommodation and for those who want to breathe the real Florentine atmosphere. At the same time, you will be close to the center of Florence, a short walk from the main monuments, squares, churches, restaurants, shops and museums.

Hotels that I recommend in Santa Maria Novella

Another interesting neighborhood to stay is Santa Maria Novella. This is a particularly exclusive area because of the proximity to the station (great if you want to do a lot of tours leaving from Florence) and the famous Church of Santa Maria Novella, a very important reference in Florence.

Hotels that I recommend in Santa Croce

Another neighborhood where you can stay is Santa Croce, where the homonymous church is located. This area, located in the southeastern part of the historic center, is close to the most interesting monuments and has its fulcrum in the church of Santa Croce. Among the scenic palaces in this district, there are many hotels that can accommodate you for a wonderful weekend in Florence.

Hotels that I recommend in Campo di Marte

Another economic possibility, where you can stay in Florence, is Campo di Marte; in this area there are several well-equipped and affordable hotels. It is a quiet and charming residential area in Florence, well connected to the historic city center by public transport. Campo di Marte has its own train station where several regional and high-speed trains stop, with which you can easily reach other Tuscan cities and major cities in Italy. It is a great choice if you have rented a car too.

Hotels I recommend outside the Historic Center

And so, if you decide to breathe a less touristic air, a good choice could be to stay in Florence right outside the historic center, where hotel prices are cheaper and the most convenient solution if you come by car. Another possibility is to stay away, in some nearby town, and experience the silence of the wonderful Tuscan landscape, but in this case it is necessary to have a car.
