What You Can Expect

Dan Brown 'Inferno' Tour of Florence

See the door of Florence Baptistery!

Your Inferno tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide. Begin with a stroll through Piazza della Signoria to visit the city’s 14th-century city hall, the Palazzo Vecchio. Inside, explore the secret passageways once used by Grand Duke Cosimo I to travel through the city discreetly, and used by Robert Langdon to flee from soldiers. You’ll also see the Hall of Geographical Maps and the plaster cast of Dante’s Death Mask, made from the famous author's face after his death.

Continue to one of Florence’s most iconic sites, the Duomo. See where Dante was reportedly baptized in front of the Baptistery and examine the Gate of Paradise that helped Langdon solve a mystery or two.

Upgrade to extend to a full-day tour, where you can follow Langdon’s trail to the Vasari Corridor and the Uffizi Gallery. Skip the line and admire masterpieces from Botticelli and Giotto before heading to the Vasari Corridor. There, inside the secret passageway, you’ll witness one of the world's largest portrait collections, and your guide will share historical highlights and stories about Dan Brown’s covert characters.

At the end of your half- or full-day tour, you’ll receive a free entrance ticket to Crypt of Santa Reparata, Opera del Duomo Museum, Giotto’s Bell Tower and Brunelleschi’s Dome, valid for same-day use.

Our tour I think was extra special as we were the only 2 people on it at this time of day early start so we had our own private guide an tour - saw everything relevant in Florence to the Dan Brown book and Guila our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable she made the tour. Now home and reading the book again makes it even more vivid and brings the book to life

Our guide was perfect for the tour. She was interesting, fun and knowledgable about the book. She was easy to understand and engaging. The three of us my group all thought she was one of the best guides on our trip.

Sarah was amazing and I had her all to myself for the entire tour one on one. I felt like I was the first tour she had ever given because her energy was contagious and fresh, so much information weaved into a remarkably memorable narrative punctuated with lots of questions on my part that received detailed and thought out answers.

Very informative tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and great through the tour. Even though most of the people in the tour have not read Inferno, she was able to provide a tour of Florence while adding in tidbits of information from the book.

The inferno tour was brilliant! The book was the reason I wanted to go to Florence and being able to go to the places from the book was fantastic. Our tour guide Mario was amazing, he really brought the story to life as well as teaching us some of the history of Florence. We done the full day tour, which just wasn't long enough, I did't want it to end. The afternoon is also an art tour, me and my partner are not art people but we found it very interesting and learnt a lot. We weren't able to use our ticket to go into the dome, bell tower or the crypt as we didn't have time. The ticket lasts for 24 hours but the next day we went to Rome so we couldn't use them then either. If we go back to Florence and I really hope we do, I would happily go on this tour again and would make sure that we had no other plans so we could do everything.

By far my favorite tour! Mario was great and really knew the book! The first part of the half day is solely focused on the book. The second half takes you through the Uffizi Gallery and the Vassari Corridor. I had Vanessa for this part and she was great, too. Loved this tour!

Great guide, Barbara, gave us a lot of information and was very enthusiastic. The locations we visited, including internal visit to Palazza Vecchio Museum and the Baptisery were beautiful, unfortunately the tour was on a Sunday so we could not go inside the Duomo but were given a ticket to view later, recommend booking another day, not Sunday. Not only did we experience the Inferno story buit we learnt oa lot of historical factes and saw great sights.
