What to expect

Take advantage of a small-group tour of Palazzo Vecchio, the symbol of Florence and the residence of the Medici family during the Renaissance. Accompanied by a local guide, you will access the palace from the main entrance in Piazza della Signoria without waiting in line.

Palazzo Vecchio was built at the end of 1200 to house the government of the Florentine Republic. In the 16th century, the palace was the residence of Grand Duke Cosimo I de Medici, and after the unification of Italy, it became the seat of the Parliament when Florence was the capital city of the Kingdom of Italy. Today the palace is the seat of the Municipality of Florence.

Alongside your guide, you will visit the private rooms of the Grand Dukes renovated by Giorgio Vasari. Marvel at the main attraction of the building, the famous Salone dei Cinquecento entirely frescoed by Vasari, and explore the halls and apartments of the Grand Duchess Eleonor of Toledo.

The tour ends in the government halls of the ancient Florentine Republic, namely the Sala dei Gigli and the Hall of Geographical Maps. At the end of the visit, you will have the opportunity to relax on the terrace located at the rear of the building and to enjoy one of the best views of the city.
