Exploring the Galleria Palatina, former Medici residence and stunning museum


We will explore the most representative part of the Pitti Palace, home to several important families: Medici, Habsburg Lorraine, Napoleon and the Italian royal dynasty, the Savoy.

On the noble floor of the building, it includes more than 500 mostly Renaissance paintings by Raphael, Titian, Perugino, Peter Paul Rubens and Pietro da Cortona. Most of the rooms are decorated with antique furniture and objects collected by the Medici. The ceiling frescoes follow the sequence of the deities is based on Ptolomeic cosmology; Venus, Apollo, Mars, Jupiterand Saturn, but minus Mercury and the Moon which should have come before Venus.

You will be immersed in the atmosphere of the historic men and women that lived here!

A Recent Review of this tour

Elisabetta toured the two of us on three different occasions and we could not be more pleased with her knowledge of Florence. She is efficient, personable, professional and fluent in English. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a special time in Florence.
