If you want to make advance reservations in Florence ( I think it’s a must), online vendors are charging you anywhere from 5-10 dollars PER museum, per TICKET, and sometimes include charges for shipping vouchers to you. You can call directly during business hours and avoid a booking fee (be prepared for some italian but they will allow options in English (with heavy italian accent). They take your name, NO MONEY UPFRONT and give you a confirmation number. You can either walk straight in if there are no lines or pick up your ticket at the window. I think it’s 4.00 if you actually use your reservations. I learned this call-in technique from Rick STeves. Whew…finally all the research is paying off.
