Description

Start your tour very early in the morning when the Uffizi Gallery is less crowded, so you will not be annoyed by the masses of tourists. Your guide will be monolingual so you will not have to listen to everything being repeated in other languages. Prepare yourself for an exciting journey through the history of Italian and international art. Discover the Uffizi Gallery, one of the biggest and richest museums in the world, an almost mystical place that should be visited at least once in a lifetime. With your fast entrance ticket included in the price, you're guaranteed a quicker entry than other ordinary visitors. After a little break, together with your guide continue to Palazzo Vecchio to discover the secrets hidden in its rooms and halls, some of which were the setting for Dan Brown's 'Inferno'. Learn how the palace acquired its name, which means 'old palace,' once the Medici family moved its residence across the Arno River to the Palazzo Pitti.  Today, the Palazzo Vecchio serves as Florence's city hall and houses a museum. Enter the imposing chamber known as the 'Salone dei 500,' where a mysterious inscription reads, 'Cerca e Trova' (seek and you shall find). This writing appears atop a fresco by Giorgio Vasari, and is an important clue in Dan Brown's novel. Hear about the secrets of this room from your guide. See works of art by Michelangelo and Donatello that are in the palace's museum. Visit the general rooms and sections of the building, including the map room with this small-group tour. Please note that this is a general Palazzo Vecchio tour and that the secrets passages are not included or available.
