What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group—no more than 15 for morning and afternoon tours, and no more than eight on the first tour of the day—in front of the lavish Pitti Palace, once home to Florence’s regal Medici family. Skip the lines at the main entrance and head straight to the opulent rooms of the Palatine Gallery at Pitti Palace.
As you roam, your guide will tell the story of the building and the Medicis, who lived here from the 16th century until the 18th century. Admire works by Rubens, Raphael, Titian, and Caravaggio, as your guide explains the religious and mythological stories that lie behind these great Renaissance artworks. Once your tour is finished, you’re free to continue exploring Pitti Palace independently, or see a little more of Florence.

You can go into the gardens but have to purchase another ticket. The Pitti and Boboli are separate venues.
