Reduced Firenze card for 17.5 years old, US citizen?

Hi

Do I need to buy full or reduced card my son who is 17.5 years old?

Also, what are the museums that are not covered by this card?

Thanks!

I don't see why you "need" to buy anything: if you buy the Firenze Card for yourself, any member of your family under 18 is covered by it anyway: "Free admission for those under 18 years of age who are members of the same family unit of the Firenzecard holder" (www.firenzecard.it/index.php…).

You can see what museums are covered by the card on its website: www.firenzecard.it/index.php…

It's up to you to research prices without Firenze Card at the museums you want to visit, but at all State/ municipal museums such as the Uffizi and Pitti Palace, under-18s go free anyway, on the basis of their passport as proof of age (irrespective of nationality): https:/…free-and-reduced-tickets

Once over 18, on the other hand, EU citizenship is required for YOUTH discounts (18-25).

qaminari has answered the first question.

The second question is a dandy.

Florence is a village -- certainly when compared with "The City".

The FirenzeCard offers admission to 72 museums -- including many of the most important museums in the world -- which you have only 72 hours to visit, and, of course, none of the museums are open for all 72 hours. So you have a whole lot more museums to choose from than you have hours to see them.

Nevertheless, you are rightly concerned about all of the other museums that you just might miss.

I can think of precisely three museums that are not included:

The Museo Casa Rodolfo Siviero;

The Museo Luigi Bellini

The Gucci Museum

Can anybody else think of any others?

I think this is a great quiz. I wish I had thought of it.
