Tour Details


Follow the trail of Dan Brown’s 2013 ‘Inferno’ novel on a half-day walking tour, led by an expert local guide!

Hear stories of the main character, code-cracking Harvard professor Robert Langdon, and visit key sites like Palazzo Vecchio’s secret passageways and the Baptistry of Florence.

Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Florence, and then set off on your Inferno tour of the city. In tune with the order of the book, start with a stroll through Piazza della Signoria to visit Palazzo Vecchio – Florence’s impressive 14th-century city hall – and head inside to explore the secret passages and chambers that linked the building to the Vasari Corridor.

During the Renaissance days of the ruling Medici family, the passageways of Palazzo Vecchio and Vasari Corridor were used by the Grand Duke Cosimo I to avoid his Florentine foes; in Inferno, Robert Langdon and his helper, Sienna Brookes, used them to flee from chasing soldiers. Other highlights of the site include the Hall of Geographical Maps and Dante’s Death Mask, a plaster cast mask of the author's face following his death.

Leave Palazzo Vecchio and stroll through town to Florence Duomo, one of the city’s most iconic sites. In front of its main door is the Baptistery of Florence (Battistero di San Giovanni), where Dante is said to have been baptized. Step inside to see the ornate bronze Gate of Paradise that helped Langton solve a few of his mysteries.

If you have more time, upgrade to a full-day tour and follow the footsteps of Langton to the Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor. Skip past the lines outside the world-famous Renaissance art gallery and explore. After admiring famous pieces of work, by artists such as Giotto and Botticelli, head to the Vasari Corridor for a stroll. The walls of Florence’s hidden corridor are lined with one of the world's largest portrait collections, and your guide will point out highlights in between telling little-known stories about Inferno's mysterious characters.

If you selected the half-day tour, finish your tour near the start point. Alternatively, if you selected the full-day tour, finish in front of Pitti Palace. Before leaving, your guide will give you an entrance ticket to Opera del Duomo Museum, Crypt of Santa Reparata, Brunelleschi’s Dome (the top of Florence Duomo) and Giotto’s Bell Tower. Just use your ticket on the same day as your Inferno tour and explore the attractions at your own pace.

You will also receive an interesting Florence City GuideBook to give you fresh suggestions and make your stay in Florence and Tuscany even more memorable.

  • The tour guide was sensational. It was a history lesson we will never forget as well as seeing special places from the book and movie. Recommend to everyone.

  • A very informative tour by a passionate and very knowledgeable guide, Mario.

  • I kind of did a speed reading of the book prior to the tour and I'm glad I did. It made the tour more interesting and it was great to see some of the iconic places of Florence. Eleanor, our tour guide was great.

  • We did the half-day tour. The only reason I rated the tour 4, not 5 was not the fault of our guide. Our guide was great and the tour was good but- the Italian government was having a special event in the Pallazzo Vecchio, and this greatly affected the tour. Since this was a scheduled event, it would have been nice to get an email ahead of time a day or so to give us a heads up this was going to happen. Viator as a provider should be able to do that. We could not explore the secret passageways, and could not get into the ground floor level of the large rooms b/c the event was being held there. Our guide did manage to make a great recovery, doing as much as we could there, but the entrance to the Pallazzo was closed off so we had to essentially go in the normal tour exit and do everything in reverse. It obviously caused her some difficulties with the order and flow, and so we did not get the full effect in the front end of the tour. All of the rest of the tour was fantastic. We spent a great deal of time in the baptistery and the skip the line for the clock tower and dome climbs was great. Highly recommended.

  • Our tour guide Francesca was excellent. She followed the book and the movie as she went through the tour. Also providing us with many interesting facts about Florence. It was a very good tour.

  • It was okay but there wasn't really all that much about the Inferno book.

  • My only regret was not adding on the Vasari corridor tour. Read the book, join this tour, skip the movie!

  • After spending 30 days in Europe and taking our grandson on so many tours of museums, churches, historical sites, etc., we were looking forward to this Dan Brown Tour which I booked just for him. He is a big fan of the Dan Brown movies and was looking forward to seeing all the sights associated with the movie. Our tour guide was great but the tour was not what we expected. 70 of the time was spent on Florence history and art history which he was totally bored with. 30 of the tour was spent on the Dan Brown movie. I don't think the tour description is accurate and I was very disappointed for him. This tour was 3 hours long. I would recommend looking for another tour that is one hour in length and just focuses on the movie. I would not recommend this tour if you are just looking for the Dan Brown experience. It is definitely not for teenagers who have read the books and enjoyed the movies.

  • What a fantastic half day tour. Our family of four were joined by a lovely couple from New Jersey. The six of us really enjoyed the tour. Daniella, our guide was superb. Knowlegable and patient, her English was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour!

  • Daniella is passionate about Florence and gave us facts about the city and #39;s history as we walked through stops in the movie. Highly recommend! Do get duomo tix and schedule duomo/bell tower first thing tho or they may be sold out!
