Tickets for calcio storico


New member
So I am in Florence for the next few days and desperately wanted to see the calcio storico final match. Every website I read said to ask my hotel when I got here for ticket packages, which I did, and they laughed and said the tickets had been sold out for 8 days. Basically, I just want to know if there are typically scalpers on the day of the match or if there is another route I can go to buy tickets. Price is not an issue as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thank you for any help

Spots in the end are limited, as the bleachers that surround the piazza di Santa Croce can only fit up to so many..... having said this, try to go directly tomorrow to the square as the match is about to start and see if you can still get in standing room only. It is really hot temperature-wise, some people might end up not going who were planning to go standing room.
