Description

NEW! Discover the centre of political power in Reinassance time, walking where only the powerful Medicis were allowed to walk. Unveil all the secrets of the magnificent Palazzo Vecchio museum and the incredible Uffizi Gallery, skipping all the lines thanks to the exclusive aerial passage between them.

The most intriguing Florentine history starts in Palazzo Vecchio. All starts from this Palazzo.
For centuries home of power, government and art in Florence. Built by Maestro Arnolfo the first architect of the Duomo, and where both Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were commissioned to paint murals, in the incredible Room of the 500.
This tour offers you the best occasion to thoroughly learn about the Medici dynasty, whom one day abandoned this palace for a bigger and more sumptuous Pitti Palace, commissioning their great court architect Giorgio Vasari to build a connecting Corridor all the way from here to their new home.
Present-day, this passage is still not open to the public!
But today, on this exclusive tour, you will be a few of the lucky ones. Participate in this special tour to follow in the footsteps of the “Prince’s itinerary”.
Enter for the first time, the Uffizi Galleries from the Medici’s private entrance!
This small arched bridge still today connects Palazzo Vecchio with the Uffizi Galleries and was used only by the Medici family members to enter their private Uffizi Art Gallery.
From here, your expert art historian guide will walk you through this imposing historical museum, taking you through a time line of art history learning how to distinguish different styles in different ages, and see how techniques developed over the centuries all the way up to our glorious Renaissance. Discover masterpieces from medieval maestros like Cimabue, Duccio and Giotto to the true Renaissance classics, as for Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’ and ‘Birth of Venus’. Learn about the later particular era and what artists as Caravaggio and Raphael left behind for us to admire. A real treat for the eyes!
Finally , finish your visit with a lovely stroll down the streets along the continuation of the Vasari Corridor learning about its where, why and when!
