Pitti Palace Wheelchair Accessible Guided Tour

Untitled-10This 2 hour, step-free Pitti Palace accessible guided tour takes you inside “Palazzo Pitti” and the Palatine Gallery, home to over 500 Renaissance paintings. Your expert guide will navigate you through the vast interior (over 100,000 square feet) of Pitti Palace, which is the largest museum complex in Florence.

Your visit will focus on the Palatine Gallery, including the royal apartments, where the paintings are displayed as they would have been when they were part of the Medici family’s private collection. The Palatine Gallery also features beautiful, ornately designed frescoed walls and ceilings done in the 15th century to celebrate the Medici family lineage.
