Starting from the 1st of March 2019, to visit the Uffizi groups of 15 people minimum and 25 maximum are required to pay an extra charge of 70 euros collectively, in addition to the regular ticket price. Group leaders shall keep the receipt until the end of the visit, being subject to random inspections by the security staff and, should it be lacking, they will be required to pay for another fee at the ticket office or make up smaller groups (up to 14 persons maximum).
The only exceptions are:
- school groups included in the maximum number of school groups allowed per day (daily quota);
- groups for tours organized by the Education Department, made up of children and a maximum of 12 accompanying adults. The total number of participants, however, cannot exceed 25 people; otherwise, the security staff is authorized to lead them to the exit.
