What to expect

Learn why Florence became the birthplace of Renaissance on a 90-minute walking tour of the city’s historical center followed by a 2-hour tour of Pitti Palace. Admire the Uffizi courtyard, the Golden Gates of Paradise and the masterpieces of Raphael and Rubens in one of the largest museums in Florence.

An expert guide will introduce you to the origins of the city as well as over 2000 years of Florentine history. You'll be fascinated by everything you see and hear as you walk through the streets once roamed by Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and other important figures.

At the Piazza della Repubblica you'll discover the city's Roman origins before you head toward the religious center where you’ll see the cathedral, the Baptistery of St. John and Giotto’s Bell Tower. Passing by Dante's house and Ponte Vecchio, and then crossing the Uffizi courtyard, you'll reach Piazza della Signoria. Here, you'll come across the majestic Palazzo Vecchio where you'll be able to observe the famous statues of the Loggia dei Lanzi.

You'll then be able to take advantage of your skip-the-line entrance for a fully guided tour of the Palatine Gallery, the private collection of Palazzo Pitti. This large group of paintings, owned by the Grand Duke, is displayed in the Royal Apartments on the first floor of the palace. Explore the stunning rooms of the royal residence decorated with frescoes and stuccoes. You'll find that this overwhelmingly majestic setting provides the perfect backdrop for the superb exhibition of paintings from the Medici collection, which includes masterpieces by Raphael, Titian, Rubens and Van Dijk.
