Help with advance bookings at select Italian sights

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Italy in May 2013, and have our visit reasonably planned out. We will be visiting Venice, Florence, Amalfi Coast and Rome over a total of 15 days (2 couples traveling together).

The 5 sights which I think may require advance booking online are :
1. Galleria Accademia (Florence)
2. Uffizi Gallery (Florence)
3. Leaning Tower of Pisa (Pisa)
4. Vatican Museums (Rome)
5. Palazzo Valentini (Rome)

I understand that booking online for Uffizi and the Vatican Museums is almost a MUST to avoid long lines, even in May. The Palazzo Valentini probably requires only a telephonic booking, 1 week in advance, so should be easy. I am confused about whether advance booking is required for Galleria Accademia in Florence. Have read conflicting reports - some say that it is easy to get in later in the afternoon, when lines are virtually gone. Is that true ?

As for Leaning Tower of Pisa, I am trying their website at www.opapisa.it ; however, there appears to be some glitch on the site's Ticket Office. It offers no choice of date or time, but just asks you to enter an "Order code". What am I doing wrong, or what am I missing ? Could someone please guide me on how to book a ticket online for Leaning Tower ?

Thanks in advance, and look forward to advice and guidance.
