“high expections, exceeded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This was the plsce we had greatest excitement about visiting on o6r first trip to Florencel sometimes, with such high excpectation you can be easily disappointed.
Not today.
With Firenze Pass we got in within 5 minutes. Did 2nd floor mostly in reverse order, which worked out well as we finished with our much loved Boticelli.
One small complaint - audio guide needs to keep up to date with shifting exhibits and give more in depth information.

“Bit of a tourist trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Obtaining tickets and gaining entrance was arduous procedure. The visit felt like being herded through galleries of paintings and sculptures

Be sure to download the free Rich Steeves audio for the MP3 player - it makes it so much more interesting!

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Most of the complaints from other reviewers are related to the queues and ticket selling system. We went there around 8:30 (gallery opens at 8:15 if I'm not mistaken) but the ticket sales only start at 9. We did not have to wait a lot of time neither had a horrible queue, although as the day progresses the queue issue becomes more and more of a problem.

Our real problem is that we felt that only some of the rooms were really worth the waiting.
"The adoration of the Magi" by Da Vinci wasnt in display
