Palazzo Vecchio, Museum, and Tower Skip the Line Tour

Join our expert guide and small group tour as we explore this center of Florentine power and relic of rennaissance.

Direct access into the palace will take you immediately inside, where you'll experience the opulent rooms, statues, paintings and halls, including the jaw dropping Sale dei Cinquecento, surrounded by enormous frescos on all sides and dating back to 1494. Wander the halls and discover secret rooms and magnifient gold ceilings while your guide uncovers the history behind it all. Lastly, climb the tower to the most breathtaking 360 degree views of Florence and the perfect photo opportunities.
