private tour with Boboli Gardens


This is a full day tour of the largest palace in Florence and the gardens that were the prototype for Versailles. We start by visiting the Palatine Gallery and the apartments, talking about the drama of the family who built the palace - Luca Pitti in particular - and of the family who subsequently owned it - the Medici. The Lorraine family inherited after the Medici and later the palace became the Royal Palace of Italy, home to the first king Vittorio Emmanuele II. We will see how this rich history translates into the interiors and collections of the palace. Inside, we visit four museums: the main picture gallery with the works by Raphael, Botticelli, Caravaggio and many other famous artists; the richly frescoed Summer Apartments with the remains of the Medici jewels; the Costume Gallery; and selected pieces from the gallery of Modern Art (19th C paintings). In the afternoon, we stroll through the Boboli and Bardini gardens, ending the day with spectacular views of Florence.
