Full description

Start in the early morning and visit the grandiose courtyard of the Pitti Palace with your expert English-speaking guide.

Then, you'll reach the "noble floor" (first floor) to discover the magic of the Palatina Gallery and its amazing collection of paintings, Renaissance and Neo-classic pieces of furniture with superb tops made with semi-precious stones, which gave fame to the Medici family all over Europe. Stuccoworks and frescoes on the ceilings, splendid paintings by Andrea del Sarto, Raffaello, Tiziano, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Caravaggio in unimaginably beautiful gilded frames will linger on in your memory. Never too crowded and so enjoyable even in the heat of the summertime, visit the Boboli Gardens in the early morning. One by one all the Grand Dukes of the Medici family will be stepping into the scene in a fabulous scenario.

Continue exploring the oldest part of the Boboli Gardens and its enchanted Amphitheater, as well as its green spaces which have inspired major landscape architects of the world.

This was one of the best tours we have been on thanks to Camella. She paced the tour well with interesting facts about the Medici family, the art in the palace and the ended it with a wonderful walk of the Boboli gardens. The views from the upper parts of the garden were amazing You could see the town of Florence and Duomo for beautiful pictures. She was one of the best tour guides we have experienced on our trip.

Fabulous knowledgeable and humanist guide, Monica, who shared her passion of the cathedral and palace! Exceptional evening tour without all the people. When we entered the dark cathedral at night, we took a seat and slowly the lights came on to illuminate the incredibly beautiful gold cathedral- we were in awe!Tour started at 6 pm and ended at 10:15 with a 1 hr break ( much needed) allowing us to sit down and have something to eat in the square . So happy I booked this evening tour!!!
