Overview
The Medici rulers who pieced together the world-class art collection at the Palatine Gallery (Galleria Palatina) in Pitti Palace (Palazzo Pitti) arranged it for aesthetics, not in date order. That makes the museum hard to navigate and the masterpieces hard to find. Save time and energy with this skip-the-line, small-group tour of Palatine Gallery. Your local guide will lead you straight to masterworks by Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Rubens, and more.

What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group—no more than 15 for morning and afternoon tours, and no more than eight on the first tour of the day—in front of the lavish Pitti Palace, once home to Florence’s regal Medici family. Skip the lines at the main entrance and head straight to the opulent rooms of the Palatine Gallery at Pitti Palace. As you roam, your guide will tell the story of the building and the Medicis, who lived here from the 16th century until the 18th century. Admire works by Rubens, Raphael, Titian, and Caravaggio, as your guide explains the religious and mythological stories that lie behind these great Renaissance artworks. Once your tour is finished, you’re free to continue exploring Pitti Palace independently, or see a little more of Florence.

Roberta gave us a good tour through the Pitti Palace. She explained the history and the politics of the era. Take the morning tour if available… the museum gets very crowded in the afternoon.
