Your Guide to the Firenze Card – Roaming Historian

Leonardo Da Vinci, The Annunciation, Uffizi Gallery, Florence, Italy

Welcome, fellow travelers and culture enthusiasts, to our guide exploring the historic heart of Florence with the incredible Firenze Card. Imagine stepping back in time, strolling through the cobbled streets where the Renaissance bloomed, and beholding art that has inspired humanity for centuries. Florence has riches unlike many cities in the world. You can visit iconic sites, such as the Palazzo Vecchio and the captivating Uffizi Gallery, home to masterpieces like Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus.”

Although the regular Firenze Card is good only for 72 hours from entry into the first visit, you may be able to purchase an additional 48 hours with Firenze Card Restart for a reduced (sometimes free) price.

By that time, I had missed a weekend of potential sightseeing.

How do you buy the Firenze Card? You can purchase online at the original seller or at one of the ticket offices around Florence. Details are here:

Is there an app?

Yes, and I encourage you to download it if you buy the Firenze Card. The app has a map built in that tells you what locations are near you. It also has your pass integrated into it and will let you know if you’ve been to a place already.

What are some of the major Florence attractions you can see with the Firenze card? You can visit famed places like the Accademia (where Michelangelo’s David is held), the Uffizi Gallery, Santa Maria Novella Church, the Bargello Museum, the Pitti Palace and more. Please note that there are other combination tickets besides the…
