Full description
Discover the history and art of the Palazzo Vecchio on this private tour. Meet your guide outside the palace, skip the lines and learn about the many roles of this emblematic building throughout Florence's history. Visit the incredible collection of Renaissance artwork, marvel at the exquisite ceilings in the Hall of the Five Hundred, and explore a hall filled with ancient maps. Travel through time to the end of the 13th century when the palace was built, and then follow its path to becoming the seat of the Florentine Republic, and later the residence of Grand Duke Cosimo I de Medici. Tour the Government Halls and the Granducale family's private rooms, renovated by Giorgio Vasari, and explore the apartments of the Grand Duchess Eleonora of Toledo. Climb Arnolfo's Tower for panoramic views of Florence.
