Full description
Those wishing to visit the main attractions in Florence simply cannot miss the Palazzo Pitti and the Palatine Gallery. This palace was the last residence of the Medici family in Florence, and as part of a small guided group tour you'll have the privilege to enter from the priority entrance of the palace without waiting in the long lines.

Starting from the office and crossing the Ponte Vecchio, you'll arrive in front of the palace to discover the most important works belonging to the daily life of the family of the Grand Dukes of the Medici. Discover works from Cosimo the 1st to Anna Maria Luisa, the latter of which was also called "Electress Palatine" from which the name of the gallery is derived.

Your guide will show you works concerning the families which followed the Medici, from the Habsburgs Lorraine to the first King of Italy, including annexed royal apartments. Visit the main attractions of the palace such as the Palatine Gallery, the Royal Apartments, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Treasury of the Grand Dukes, and the Museum of Fashion and Costume. The entrance ticket that your guide will give you will be valid for the whole day, allowing you to remain inside the gallery even after the end of the guided tour.
