To enter the Lello, you will have to buy your ticket (a voucher of 5 euros) in a store 20m away. This voucher can be discounted in buying a book. And, as you are a busy person, aim to visit the Lello Bookstore at the end of the day, starting at 5:00 p.m. – which is when you avoid the big peak of visits.
