Full capacity for visitors, via the obligation of social allocation, the possibility of bringing larger groups to the museum: this is how the Uffizi Galleries in Florence implement the new anticovid regulations decided by the Government, which regulations are in force today. The museum complex returns to its maximum capacity (up to 900 visitors to the Uffizi, 450 to Palazzo Pitti, 3000 to the Boboli Gardens) and the obligation to maintain at least one meter distance between people during their stay in the spaces of the Tunnel.
The other anti Covid measures remain unchanged: control of the green pass and body temperature at the entrance, obligation to wear a mask inside the museum. Larger groups will be admitted: the new limit is set at 16 people (including guide and companions). At the Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti over 10 people, however, the usual surcharge of 70 euros is triggered and for groups that exceed six units (guide included) it will always be necessary to use the whisper system (earphones and microphone). The new rules are a decisive step towards normality – comments the director of the Galleries Eike Schmidt -. However, the museum remains a safe place, for the tranquility of visitors, thanks to the measures adopted.
