However, in the high season there is a morning discount for those who go to the museum between 8:15 and 8:55: they pay 19 euros. Low season prices unchanged.
Sangiuliano: “It’s right to adapt to European standards”
“I think it’s right, we have to adapt to European standards.” This was stated by the Minister of Culture, Gennaro Sangiuliano, answering a question on the increase in the ticket for the Uffizi and on the possibility that other sites will follow the same example, on the occasion of the opening of the house of the Vettii in Pompeii. “On average, the large European sites cost more – he added – with the exception of Great Britain where there is a particular situation. I think that the increase also responds to a so-called “moral” question: for an American family that spends 10-20 thousand euros to come to Italy, paying 20 euros for a ticket is something that can be done”.
The increase decided by the Board of Directors, explained in a note from the Uffizi Galleries, was approved by the Regional Directorate of Museums of Tuscany and the General Directorate of Museums of the Ministry of Culture. The ticket prices for Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, which are part of the Uffizi Galleries complex, remain unchanged.
For the low season “the entrance prices and all the low season discounts remain unchanged, in addition to the Passepartout 5 Days, Passepartout annual and Passepartout Family passes”. Finally, until 28 February, the Uffizi reminds us that “the price of the ticket for the Gallery of statues and paintings is 12 euros”.CopyAMP code.
