Description

Step back in time to the Renaissance period while exploring Pitti Palace and discover hidden caves in the historic Boboli Gardens on this shared or private walking tour in Florence. See the Basilica of San Lorenzo, Ponte Vecchio, Medici Riccardi Palace, and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. Start your trip by experiencing the majesty of Palazzo Pitti, a symbol of the Renaissance palace built in 1458. The building became famous for being the residence of the Medici family from the 16th century until their fall in the 18th century. Learn the history of the palace and discover the details behind the Palatine Gallery's collection of artworks, including paintings by Raphael, Titian, Rubens, and more. Afterward, continue your journey to the magical Boboli Gardens. Walk yourself through the alchemical paths made of mazes that lead to hidden caves covered with limestone. Admire the engineering of XVI-century architects like Buontalenti, the inventor of the first gelato. Wander around the fountains, obelisks, and ice-making pyramids. Finally, enjoy sweeping 360° views of Florence from Cavalier's Palace.
