Overview
Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most significant historic buildings in all of Florence. For decades, the palace served as a glamorous backdrop to the daily lives of the most powerful Florentine family, the Medici. Booking Palazzo Vecchio guided tour takes you on a journey through the artistic, political and personal aspects of their lives. Having arrived at the designated meeting point, you will check in with the agency representative and meet your expert guide. You guide will then take you to Palazzo Vecchio which you can enter without delay, only passing a standard security check. Within one hour, you will get to see the most significant halls inside the Palazzo. For instance, the grand hall filled with paintings and sculptures bearing secret messages and hidden information as well as the lavish and gilded rooms of the Medici Apartment. You will even get to peek at the entrance to the secret Vasari corridor and see the legendary Mask of Dante.
