You say Uffizi and I say Ucrazy!
I think a lot about the inefficiencies in Italy - particularly when I'm standing in line.
For example I had purchased tickets to the Uffizi Museum online, so that I could bypass waiting in a long line to get in.
Sounds simple, but here is how it really goes:
You take your online voucher and stand In line to get your real ticket.
Then you take your real ticket and stand in line to get in the museum, where you stand in another line to get access to the exhibition area. WTF?!?
What's so hard about buying one ticket and getting access to the exhibit area?
Why the 3 or 4 extra steps?
However, if you haven't prepared with an online voucher, you must be prepared to stand for hours at any attraction in the hot sun or the pouring rain. Not just in Florence, but pretty much anywhere in Italy that tourists frequent.
They have the concept right. Buy a ticket to bypass the line, but the implementation leaves something to be desired.
