Know More about this tourMeet 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.
