Watch out for sites that let you book tickets and charge huge fees for the service.

It is very SIMPLE to book tickets:

Avoid the two-hour peak-season midday wait by making a telephone reservation. It's easy, slick, and costs only ?3 (in addition to the ?9.50 admission fee). Dial 055-294-883 during office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30-18:30, Sat 8:30-12:30, closed Sun) at least a day before your visit and ideally at least a few days in advance for a better selection. With the help of an English-speaking operator, you'll get an entry slot (15-min window) and a six-digit confirmation number. Off-season, it can be possible to get a same-day reservation. Using the same phone number, you can reserve in advance for the Accademia, Bargello, Medici Chapels, and Pitti Palace; of these, the Accademia has the worst lines.
