Italy: Florence offers one card for admission to 33 museums and public transportation

Special to the Los Angeles Times

Florence, Italy, has recently joined Rome and Naples in offering a single entry card, this one good for admission to 33 museums and passage on all its public transportation.

The Firenze Card, which costs 50 euros (about $70) and is good for 72 hours, grants admittance to sites large and small, including

* The Uffizi for the Botticelli masterpieces (without endlessly standing in line – look for the special entrance for card holders)

* The Academia to see Michelangelo’s David.

* The Medici tombs

* The museums in the enormous Palazzo Pitti, including the gardens

*The Brancacci Chapel for the Masaccios

* The small Stefano Bardini Museum

Not all top sites are included in the card program, however.  Santa Croce and  the recently restored Bardini Gardens, for instance, are excluded.

Info: Buy your card online or at select locations in the Florence area.
