Here's the Uffizi's new fee schedule: all prices for low and high season

Prices for visiting the Uffizi Gallery and museums in the complex are changing. Here are all the prices in the new fee schedule, divided between high and low season.

The new pricing schedule for the Uffizi museum circuit, which in addition to the Uffizi Gallery includes the Pitti Palace (with the Palatine Gallery, the Royal Apartments, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Museum of Fashion and Costume and the Grand Dukes’ Treasure) and the Boboli Gardens (Boboli Gardens, Porcelain Museum and Bardini Gardens), was released this afternoon. Prices are divided between high and low season (high from March 1 to Oct. 31, low from Nov. 1 to Feb. 28/29), and there are also cumulative tickets and annual passes (the latter named and with priority admission).

Here is the price table:

MuseumLow season priceHigh season priceAnnual subscription
Uffizi12 euro (6 reduced)20 euro (10 reduced)50 euro
Pitti Palace10 euro (5 reduced)16 euro (8 reduced)35 euro
Boboli6 euro (3 reduced)10 euros (5 reduced)25 euro
Cumulative all museums 18 euro (9 reduced)38 euro (19 reduced)70 euro

For Palazzo Pitti there will be a 50 percent reduction on tickets with admission from 8:15 to 8:59 am. Florence residents will continue to have free admission to the Boboli Gardens.

Recall current rates for comparison: Uffizi 12.50 euros (+4.50 during exhibitions, 8 euros reduced), Pitti Palace 13 euros (+4.50 during exhibitions, 8.50 reduced), Boboli 10 euros (+3 during exhibitions, 7 euros reduced). The new rates will go into effect on March 1, 2018. From September 1, 2017, annual passes will start instead.

The new system of admission fees to the Uffizi Galleries museums, said Uffizi Director Eike Schmidt, rewards those who come to see the entire artistic heritage concentrated by the Medici and Lorraine families in our museums, but disincentivizes those who choose only one slice with the most famous works. It privileges those who return several times a year (or in the span of a week or two), and therefore particularly targets Florentines by birth and adoption as well as genuinely interested outsiders, while intending to discourage hit-and-run tourism. I recall in this regard that among the tasks entrusted to museums is also that, at this time a priority for cities such as Florence and Venice, of protecting in every respect the integrity of historic centers, which are the heritage of humanity. Thanks to the seasonalization of tickets and the particular incentive to visit the museums located in the Oltrarno Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, the new tariff system of the Uffizi Galleries will contribute decisively to a better topographical and hourly balance of tourist flows in Florence. We will foster a less hurried, countercultural and quality tourism: a tourism that is based on the desire for knowledge, that stimulates cultural exchanges between peoples, and that will create prosperity and new jobs throughout the city thanks to the economic inducement.
