The tour is a long wait and charming in its own way but if you have a choice just spend your time basking in the beauties of the apartments. The walls, ceilings... it's all marvelous!

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio

It is a normal street over a bridge, but it is very crowded. Maneuvering will take time and will get you a bit cranky. I haven't seen accommodations for persons with reduced mobility.

Hi, I am trying to find the website to book this tour. We are planning to visit Aug 10-12, 2017 and will be 2 adults and 3 kids. I looked up the official website but it doesn't show any booking times. Is it too early to book for Aug? Thanks
