What to expect

Take part in the tour which recreates the cultural climate at court during the reign of the Medici family!

Enjoy skip-the-line access for a fully guided tour of the Palatine Gallery (Galleria Palatina). This is a private collection at Pitti Palace which will take roughly two hours to complete. This private collection is made up of a vast group of paintings owned by the Grand Duke and are displayed in the official staterooms on the first floor of the Pitti Palace.

You will explore the various rooms in the palace, including the Planetary Rooms. These rooms were designed by the great Baroque painter Pietro da Cortona and create an overwhelmingly stunning environment of frescoes and stucco. You will soon find that this beautiful setting provides the perfect background of the superb exhibition of paintings from the Medici collection, including masterpieces by Raphael, Titian, Rubens and VanDijk.

This is the ideal tour for art and history lovers alike made all more the better by your knowledgeable tour guide and coveted skip-the-line access.
