Easy to find guide at meeting point Amazing to skip queues on entry and taken to the entrance of the exhibitions. Clean and quick - we wanted to walk around at leisure inside so did not want a guided tour but were given some advice on where to go and how to get best out of visit.

Perfect for us. Skip the line ticket without the guided tour. We wanted to control the amount of time inside so we decided not to do a guide, but did not want to wait for an unknown amount of time in the entry line. Our entry host also gave us good tips before going inside.

I booked a skip the line and guided entrance ticket and it was smooth. Nico, our guide gave us information of do’s and don’ts before starting our tour.

I thank all the Ecoart staff and especially the guide Paolo who was really so kind. Alessia and Giorgia from Florence and Messina!

We were at the museum in half an hour on a Saturday. Good guidance by the host, value for money.
