There was no line or wait for tickets when we were there June 5. The audio guide is very good, well worth the 3 euros. The frescos have been restored and are spectacular.

Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
