What to expect

Visit Palazzo Vecchio, a symbol of the history of Florence and one of its most emblematic buildings. Enjoy total immersion in the Renaissance taking a dip in the history of the city thanks to a private guide.

Enter the palace avoiding long waiting lines and enjoy a guided tour of the museum. The ticket has no expiration date: you can visit the other attractions included in your ticket freely even on the days after the tour.

Palazzo Vecchio was built at the end of 1200 to house the government of the Florentine Republic. In the 16th century, the palace was the residence of the Grand Duke Cosimo I de Medici, and after the unification of Italy, it became the seat of the Parliament when Florence was the capital city of the Kingdom of Italy. The palace is today the seat of the Municipality of Florence.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit the private rooms of the royal family decorated by the famous architect Giorgio Vasari, who also frescoed the Salone dei Cinquecento, the main attraction of the palace, and explore the halls and apartments of the Grand Duchess Eleonora of Toledo.

Palazzo Vecchio also offers one of the best views of the city from the rear terrace. The tour ends in the government halls of the ancient Florentine Republic, namely the Sala dei Gigli and the Hall of Geographical Maps. At the end of the experience, you can continue the visit on your own.
