Marvel at the incredible collection of artworks arrayed in the style typical of private collections, surrounded by rich decor and original ornate frames.  Follow your local guide through the gallery and admire dozens of Renaissance paintings, including masterpieces by Botticelli, Titian, Rubens, Caravaggio, and many other Italian and European painters. Explore the Planetary Rooms, which were designed by the great Baroque painter Pietro da Cortona to provide a stunning backdrop of frescoes to the paintings in the Medici collection. Finally, visit the Royal Apartments, once inhabited by the King of Italy.  After your tour, enjoy free time to return to any rooms or paintings you want to take a closer look at. This is the ideal tour for art and history lovers alike, made all the better by your knowledgeable tour guide and skip-the-ticket-line access.

    The palace was very nice.

    It was kind of hard to figure out where the tour started. My tour guide was great and she shared a lot of knowledge about the palace and the paintings inside.
