    Default Tour of Uffizi first Sunday in July?

    I understand that the Uffizi is free on Sunday, July 5. One company says it does tours - is that possible? I don't want to sign up only to find it is not true.

    Yes, all of the State and city museums are free in Florence on the first Sunday of the month.

    All state museums in the rest of Italy are also free on that same Sunday.

    As far as I know, groups are still allowed entrance into museums on that day (including the Uffizi) but I do not know how they are managed, probably with bookings made over the phone to manage the flow.... so if a company is selling a guided tour for that day, they will make you pay for the service they are offering. The museum itself does NOT offer tours at all, just audio devices you can rent during your visit.
