The "classic" Firenze Card has also other versions: the Firenze Card Plus and the Firenze Card Restart. But let's see in detail what they offer:

The basic Firenze Card costs € 85, is valid for 72 hours (from the entrance to the first museum) and allows priority access to 80 museums and monumental sites in and around Florence; most of them without reservation.

Every card includes free access to museums for a second person if younger than 18 (EU citizens only).  The activation of the card starts with the first use. The holder must personalize the Card (not transferable) with his name and surname.
It is possible to buy it online, by downloading the Firenze Card App on Google Play or Itunes Stores, inserting the number of vouchers received after the purchase… then starting directly your visit! Alternatively, you can also purchase/withdraw it from a series of museums and info points, either by credit card or cash, according to the details shown in the diagram at the bottom of the page.

Now to the reservations:
Brunelleschi's Dome requires a special reservation (to be made on site, at the Museum of the Cathedral).

From April 1, 2019 priority entrance to Uffizi and Galleria dell'Accademia is only possible by a free of charge reservation for an appointed time. Reservation can be done by phone (calling the Firenze Musei call center ph. +39 055 294883), or in person at: Orsanmichele booking office (Via de' Calzaiuoli - opening hours Mon-Sat 9am-4pm), My Accademia bookstore (Via Ricasoli 105r - opening hours Tue-Sun 8:15am-5pm) or Uffizi booking offices (door no. 2 or 3 - opening hours Tue-Sun 8:15am-5:45pm).

As for the Firenze Card + (Firenze Card Plus), this entitles you to travel on all urban bus lines and tramways for 72 hours (from when you validate on the bus at the beginning of the first journey). Thanks to several commercial partners it offers you a series of discounts and promotions in restaurants, shops, and shows. The Firenze Card Plus costs € 7 and can be purchased only together with the “normal” Firenze Card.

Recently the "Firenze Card Restart" has been launched. It is a new tool, costing € 28, that allows to reactivate your Florence Card - at its expiry and within a year - for a further 48 hours. Firenze Card Restart - which can be purchased exclusively online - will allow you to access to all those places you had not been able to visit in the first 72 hours.
