"The Palazzo Vecchio resembles a giant chess piece. With its robust quadrangular facade and rusticated square-cut battlements, the massive rooklike building is aptly situated, guarding the southeast corner of the Piazza della Signoria". This is what Dan Brown writes in his best seller set in Florence, Inferno.
Follow in the footsteps of Prof. Robert Langdon and learn about the history of the palace as you move through the locations and scenes of the novel. The public rooms – as well as the most secret ones – become the settings for searches, pursuits, and coups de théâtre centered on a precise work of art:
"Here we are, finally… Marta Alvarez had expected to see Dante’s familiar dead face staring back at her, but instead, all she saw was the red satin interior of the cabinet and the peg on which the mask normally hung".
After the guided tour you can stay in the museum as long as you want and continue to explore the palace's rooms and art collection on your own.
