Florence: Palazzo Vecchio

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'm planning on visiting the Palazzo Vecchio with my three children and I was just looking at purchasing tickets ahead of time via its website. However, I am a bit confused about which tickets I should be buying as the 'base' ticket because it's not very clear to me what the 'archeological tour' is.
http://www.musefirenze.it/en/museums/

Since my children are younger (ages 11, 9 and 7), I was looking to do a guided tour and/or the fresco workshop (the costs of which are probably in addition to the base ticket...) so I'm not sure if I should even bother getting anything more than the cheapest ticket. There's probably only so much time that I can expect my boys to stay focused inside the palace!

Also, I've seen a lot of mention about the 'secret passages' tour. On its website, it lists a secret passages tour for 4 Euros which is a heck lot cheaper than another 'Secret Passages' tour by a private tour company that came up on my Internet search of 'Secret Passages' tour. Can anyone verify that all the rave reviews is for the tour by the museum itself and not the one by the private tour company? http://www.musefirenze.it/en/museums/activities-search-results/?target=pri

Thanks!

Val
