Join us in a 1.5-hour guided tour of secrets and hidden passages in Palazzo Vecchio uncovering true history of Florence and the palazzo.


If you’ve read Dan Brown’s famous novel ‘Inferno’, you may have heard of the paths crossing the staircase built in the thick wall of the medieval palace in Florence by the tyrant Walter di Brienne to reach the secret door, his escape!


You will get to visit some extremely precious spaces such as the staircase built thanks to Gualtieri di Brienne and carved into the depths of the walls; the Studiolo of Francesco I de’ Medici, a very refined treasure chest “of rare and precious things”, and the Desk of his father Cosimo I (also known as Tesoretto); and finally the majestic coffered ceiling of the Salone dei Cinquecento.


You will pass from the Studio, Secret Room of the Alchemist, and see many other hidden rooms. Discover hidden escape routes and secret passages that were used to stealthily move inside the building.


The guide will also tell you many anecdotes about the Medici family, a very wealthy political power in Florence, who chose the Palace as their residence in 1540.
