(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 27 – Visitors to the Uffizi in the first half of August increased by 70% compared to the previous year, Director Heike Schmidt told an ANSA forum on Friday.
In the first half of this month, over 157,000 visitors came to the famous Florentine museum, he said.
That was only 23% less than the “golden year 2019”, which was a particularly good year.
“The recovery after the pandemic is going really well,” said Schmidt.
“From May until today we have had constant growth and it continues.
“Not even the Green Pass (vaccine pass) was a problem.
“Our visitors arrive prepared, with their passport or proof of a negative COVID test”. (ANSA).
