Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio (Half-Day Guided Tour)

Tour Description

Because the tour starts very early in the morning, when the Uffizi Gallery is less crowded, your experience will seem more personal. The itinerary has been rigorously selected with the help of certified guides to show you much more than the great masterpieces everyone knows. We guarantee you a professional and fun experience.

Get ready for an exciting journey through Italian and international art history From classical sculptures of emperors and Roman tombs to Giotto, Gentile da Fabriano, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mantegna, Titian, Caravaggio and many more .

The Uffizi Gallery is one of the largest and richest museums in the world, an almost mystical place that should be visited at least once in a lifetime. With your included fast-track admission ticket, we guarantee you faster entry than other ordinary visitors.

After a short break, together with your guide, continue to discover the secrets hidden in its rooms and corridors, some of which were the setting for Dan Brown’s novel, Inferno.

Learn how the palace acquired its name, meaning “old palace,” when the Medici family moved its residence across the Arno River to the Pitti Palace. Today Palazzo Vecchio serves as Florence’s city hall and houses a museum.

Enter the imposing chamber known as the “Hall of 500,” where a mysterious inscription reads “Seek and Find” (search and you will find). This inscription appears above a fresco by Giorgio Vasari, and is an important clue in Dan Brown’s novel. Hear the secrets of this room from your guide.

Admire the works of art by Michelangelo and Donatello found in the palace museum. Visit the general rooms and sections of the building, including the map room, on this small group tour.

Keep in mind that this is a general tour of the Old Palace and secret passages are not included or available.
