What to expect

Built for a dynasty, overtaken by the Medici, occupied by Napoleon, and seat to the first king of a united Italy, the commanding façade of Palazzo Pitti has watched Florence’s fortunes rise and fall over the centuries.

The tour will start from the Palatine Gallery, where you will be able to find artworks by some of the most famous painters of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, including Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Rubens, Artemisia Gentileschi and Pietro da Cortona. You will admire the Medici living quarters and listen to the stories about how life was lived in the heyday of the Medici reign.

Behind the palace, You will find the Boboli Gardens, unfold in a cool haven of sculpture, water and hidden grottos. Monumentally designed and filled with classical artworks, it’s now considered one of Florence’s most spectacular open-air museums and was the inspiration for the gardens at the Palace of Versailles.

The tour will end by the hill to Forte di Belvedere and onwards to the Bardini Gardens and its coffee house, where you could enjoy a relaxing coffee overlooking marvelous views of Florence.
