What To Expect
Start the Morning discovering secrets and revelations at the exciting sites described in Dan Brown's thrilling novel, Inferno. Our charismatic guide will entertain you through an intriguing path of mind-blowing details, anecdotes, and clue-filled history that will reveal all the most important sights and locations that professor Robert Langdon visited in the Brownian dark masterpiece.
This Inferno experience will introduce you to Dante and his Divine Comedy. The guide will focus on Botticelli's painting entitled Inferno and will include an in-depth description of the connection this has with Dante and the history of the Divine Comedy. The tour will include the visit to the Baptistery, the Paradise Gates and the Duomo of Florence where you will be enlightened with knowledge of the symbols and codes as described in the book.
The highlight of the tour will be at Palazzo Vecchio, Town hall of Florence where faith and science join together with breathless revelations. This will lead the way through the beautiful Salone dei 500 and the secret passages of the Duke of Athens. This unique building as described by Dan Brown as, "...a giant chess piece that has become an inimitable symbol of Florence." Here, we will admire the Hall of Geographical Maps, the Capriate, the balconies and Dante's death Mask.
This is a great tour that will allow you to learn more about art and the rich history of Florence while learning about its protagonists of the past, such as Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo and Giorgio Vasari through the lens of mystery and symbology.
You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the usual long lines as we will enter from a reserved side entrance. You will thus be able to view the main masterpieces by artists like Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Finally, you will explore the Vasari Corridor, the best kept secret of Florence. It served as a passageway dating back to 1564, when the Grand Duke of Florence, Cosimo I de' Medici ordered his favorite architect, Giorgio Vasari to build a path that would allow him and the Royal family to move freely from their residence (Palazzo Pitti) to the government palace (Palazzo della Signoria, other side of the river Arno). The visit of this Corridor will make the Inferno Experience more complete and more special. Hidden between city houses and even passing through a church, the Vasari Corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance. The corridor is rarely open to the public, so take advantage of this unique opportunity to view Florence and its artistic pleasures on this exclusive walking tour.
This unique opportunity to visit the vasari will end on the 30th of November, from the 1st of December the Vasari corridor will be closed for restoration work thefore the tour will only include a walking tour of the vasari corridor from outside. Customers will still enjoy an extended guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery with a Skip the line Service, visiting the main Uffizi masterpieces including Leonardo's art pieces which was not be included in the original itinerary. After the gallery visit, join a complimentary walking tour following the Vasari Corridor path (from the outside), crossing Ponte Vecchio and ending in Piazza Pitti, also known as the Medici Residence.
