What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Pitti Palace and Palatine Gallery Walking Tour

Brunellesci's Statue

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.

One of our two top tours taken of the many we booked. all due to a wonderful guide named Frederica. Bright, sharp, well spoken young woman who made the tour enjoyable and informative. No real lines to skip, honestly, but the tour was worth it,,,,,definitely wouldn't have come away knowing so much on our own.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

We loved our tour with Roberta who was extremely knowable. The time flew past quickly as she gave us great background on the Medici and the art they collected. It was a most enjoyable afternoon.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

On a wet day in Florence we completed this visit which was a pleasant change from the busy and crowded streets we were trying to navigate.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and it was a worthwhile tour with less than 10 participants. The art was lovely and the history of the building was great to learn. I would suggest that it would be great to include the gardens as part of the tour.
