We booked the secret passages tour and were guided with a small group by Giacomo. He spent a great deal of time explaining the history behind Palazzo Vecchio and the Medicis which was very useful and informative. We visited areas not usually seen by the general public, staircases, secret chambers and above the celing in the great hall. Excellent and... More

We took our kids to a guided tour called Life at Court at Palazzo Vecchio over half-term and it was amazing! The guide, Giacomo, captivated the children with the right level of interesting facts and entertainment, and captivated us too! They also have other events for kids. Too bad they don't do this for the Uffizi as well!

Amazing visit through the secret passages of the Medici, on their own palace. The guide, Francesco Gori had perfect english and the visit was really interesting with him. 100% recommended. We'll definitely repeat.

We did the "Inferno" tour at Pallazo Vecchio with Giácomo, and it was great! He is a great guide, knowing every secret of the palace, and the tour was awesome, remaking the steps of Robert Langdon in the Museum (both the movie and book passages). If you are visiting Florence and read the book/saw the movie, you have to make... More

On a guided tour of Palazzo Vecchio we encountered Alberto Galligani who is affiliated with Muse Firenze also know as MUS.E. We have been on many guided tours and this was one of the top 5 in terms of the guide. We would use him again and he is highly recommendable. His English is excellent. His command of Florentine and... More

We were able to peer into the restoration department, as one would expect a massive room large enough to reweave the massive textiles of that period. The entire museum is fabulous, I was a bit overwhelmed with all that 16th C. iconic Christos, had no idea how prevalent that depiction of Christ was. A 'no miss' if you go to... More

If you have young children, let's face it, the centre of Florence can sometimes be a bit boring. Unless they like shopping or are mini-history freaks, apart from the Disney store and the shows in Piazza della Repubblica, there's not too much to do...

This was a very interesting and well-conceived tour, thanks to Francesca. She did a good job involving our kids and explaining how the building structure and secret rooms illuminate the Medicis personalities.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
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 and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
