What To Expect

Your tour will begin in front of the resplendent Pitti Palace. The former home of the powerful Medici family, the lavish Renaissance palace now hosts an extraordinary collection of art.

Bypass the lines at the main entrance and enjoy direct entry with your skip-the-line ticket. Follow your guide through the opulent rooms of the Palatine Gallery, arranged for aesthetic value rather than being displayed chronologically. As you roam from room to room, hear about the history of the building and the Medicis, who took over the palace in the 16th century until their fall from power in the 18th century.

Pause to admire some of the incredible works amassed by the Medicis during their rule. See works from Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian, Pietro da Cortona and Rubens, learning the stories and techniques behind the masterpieces. From the windows, catch views of Brunelleschi’s Santo Spirito Basilica and the Boboli Gardens.

Your tour will conclude in the gallery after two hours, leaving you free to continue exploring on your own, if you wish.

Our guide, Mauricio, was outstanding! His knowledge of art, history, architecture, government, politics, and horticulture were amazing. He was informative, engaging with the perfect mix of humor and insight. We would absolutely take another tour of Pitti and Bobili with him again!

The tour operator didn’t show up! We waited in the hot sun for this tour. I got a phone call 15 minutes after the tour was scheduled to begin. THEY FORGOT. I’m trying to get my refund of €120 but VIATOR IS NOT REPLYING
Delightful Pitti Palace tour
Lucretia_A, Nov 2019
Three couples from Texas comprised the small group tour of the Palatine Gallery on November 6. We found ourselves in the company of an extremely knowledgeable guide who effectively shared his enthusiasm for the artwork collected by the Medici family. He made excellent use of the time we had in the gallery and recommended a number of additional things we could see in the palace following our tour. We were very pleased with the tour.
Wonderful tour and guide

We enjoyed a most informative and enlightening tour. Our guide had such an understanding of the amazing art and history - we loved this tour. Highly recommend!
Background and perspective
Travel45580997764, Oct 2019
Our wonderful guide Sarah brought to life the history and stories of the Medici’s and the artists of the time with such insight and detail that it backfilled much of the knowledge to explain what we had already experienced in Florence. Highly recommend this tour and can’t thank Sarah enough for sharing her knowledge with us.
Not as Much to See as I Had Hoped
Cecelia_H, Oct 2019
The tour guide was good and she pointed out the best of what was on display. But the sad fact of the matter is that there are a lot of less than glorious paintings. And the apartments of the king and queen are tired and uninteresting. Had I known this, I would have taken a tour of the gardens instead.
