A must see in Florence. The bell tower is one of the highest points in the city and offers great views. Tha audioguide can be a little confusing and if you see the bell tower first, you will have to re-enter the museum portion which is easy enough but can be a little alarming as you are being shepherded to the exit.

Historically significant and wonderfully preserved. Tip: the home audio guide makes the visit more relaxed, as it is a tablet that you have to carry in your hand. Even if the guide is well done, I found the videos rather annoying as they distract from the halls.

The care is very secure (covid); normal. But it is fast and of high quality. Visit in 2 stages. First the tower, in small groups. Splendid view of the city. Tiring, but worth it. Then the museum: very beautiful pieces

The instructions in the App were clear. At the meeting point/info desk there was a person, waiting for me. After I received my audioguide, this person took us to the tower.

The local guide was very friendly. She assisted us with getting The tickets at the local ticket office. I was very happy for the audio- guided tour .
