It took hours to line up first for the ticket (I understood can buy online) then line up to get in. If your hotel offers the fast track at higher price, take that if you don’t want to spend time lining up. The interior is...More
This bookstore is beautiful. In fact, it is breathtaking. I love bookstores, I love architecture, I love historic buildings. This bookstore is all of those in one. The problem is that there is a group of people who visit this store because it inspired the...More
I’m sure it all has to do with the Harry Potter story and the fact that the author visited there but too crowded and 5 euros to get in. Books are expensive even though you can use the 5 € as credit towards the purchase....More
It’s always a good experience for those who love books, but the main issue is the excess of people.
We advise to buy the tickets online, if not the tickets can be purchased in the next door building called Lello check in, the cost is...More
Luckily We didn’t have to Queue too long today , however we didn’t realise that you need a ticket from another building 3 doors up the road to get in . So ended up queuing twice once we realised .

Being a local I was used to pass by the library on a weekly basis and to buy my books there. Today I ended up going there and it was choking to see how they marketed it, how crowed it was. The architecture keeps being...More
The architecture here is spectacular, but I'd highly recommend visiting as early as possible to try and avoid some of the crowds. Fully appreciate I was one of the tourists in there (!) But really difficult to appreciate it when it's as busy as it...More
We waited in the rain for a couple of hours for this experience. We hadn’t realised we needed tickets to enter until the shop was about to open. Tickets can be bought online or at the ticket office near the bookshop. This is a quaint...More
It truly is the most beautiful bookstore. If you have Harry Potter fans in your family you should stop by. The ticket line was fairly quick. No backpacks are allowed in. You need to put your pack in a locker after you buy your ticket...More

The line is the same if you’ve purchased tickets or not. There is no time you have to go in once you’ve purchased them. Someone from the store walks through the line to see if you’ve purchased a ticket. If you have someone with you they will send one of you to get one. If you get to the front of the line and you haven’t gotten yours yet you’re sent to the back of the line!

No, there is no such limitation. You may not use your photos for commercial purposes, and you are asked to CO tribute to a calm visit and a steady flow of and down the stairs. This was the case in October, at least.
