Full description
The Palazzo Vecchio is Florence’s Town Hall, and acquired its current name when the Medici duke's residence was moved across the Arno River to the Palazzo Pitti. For this 90-minute tour you’re guaranteed a small group to ensure a more intimate and relaxing experience. Inside this stunning structure you’ll have a chance to see the Salone dei 500, the chamber containing the mysterious inscription, Cerca e Trova (seek and you shall find) written at the top of Giorgio Vasari's wall frescoes. The inscription plays an important role in Dan Brown’s Inferno, and with your official guide you'll uncover its secrets. Admire the art of Michelangelo and Donatello and visit all the apartments and chambers of the palazzo.

Great experience

Fantastic experience with fantastic guide. We had a private tour for 3people, our guide LEONARDO was incredibly knowledgeable, interesting in all explanations, went out of his way to give background information. We ask many questions and felt enriched by this tour. Absolutely recommended, can’t be compared with anything with audio guide.

Great tour and highly reccomend

This was a really great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable but it did not feel like a history lesson. The pace was great and in fact me and my mom were the only ones that signed up that day so we had our own personal guide. I really enjoyed this tour and highly reccomend it.
