Symbols revealed, a magical atmosphere with mystery and suspense! All this and more on our unique tour of Florence that will introduce you to the sites described by Dan Brown in his novel Inferno, also giving the EXCLUSIVE opportunity to visit the VASARI CORRIDOR, along the Medici Walk, together with an English speaking guide.

Our charismatic guide will entertain you through an intriguing path of mind-blowing details, anecdotes, and clue-filled history that will reveal all the most important sights and locations that professor Robert Langdon visited in the Brownian dark masterpiece.

The first part of the tour will introduce you to Dante and his Divine Comedy, with a focus on Botticelli’s painting entitled Inferno and will include an in-depth description of the connection this has with Dante and the history of the Divine Comedy.
The tour will include the visit to the Baptistery, the Paradise Gates and the Duomo of Florence (the cathedral) where you will be enlightened with knowledge of the symbols and codes as described in the book. Then you’ll visit Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of Florence, where faith and science join together with breathless revelations. This will lead the way through the beautiful “Salone dei 500” and the Museum of Palazzo Vecchio. This unique building is described by Dan Brown as “A giant chess piece that has become an inimitable symbol of Florence”. (cit. Dan Browns’ Inferno) - At Palazzo Vecchio we will also admire the Hall of Geographical Maps, the balconies and Dante’s death Mask

The second part of the tour, will drive you through Vasari Corridor, the secret Corridor built by Giorgio Vasari ad commissioned by the Grand Duke of Florence, Cosimo I de' Medici in 1564, wit the aim to built a path that would allow him and the Royal family to move freely from their residence (Palazzo Pitti) to the government palace (Palazzo della Signoria, other side of the river Arno), passing above the famous Pontevecchio (the landmark of Florence).

The Vasari Corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance, but rarely open to the public. So take advantage of this unique opportunity to view Florence and its artistic pleasures on this exclusive walking tour!

Before this very exclusive opening of the unique Vasari Corridor, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy an approx. 1 1/2 hour guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the usual long lines as we will have a reserved priority entrance. You will thus be able to view the main masterpieces by artists like GiottoBotticelliLeonardo da VinciMichelangelo, etc.
When in Florence... do like the Medici used to do!

A nice and interesting booklet on the tour and the city will be our present that you can take back home with you to remember this wonderful experience.

This is a great tour that will allow you to learn more about art and the rich history of Florence while learning about its protagonists of the past, such as Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo and Giorgio Vasari through the lens of mystery and symbology.
