Follow the journey of Robert Langdon in Florence and see some of the most beautiful attractions in Florence.
We start from Porta Romana, where Langdon and Sienna try to enter the ancient city to reach Palazzo Vecchio, finding out that police is everywhere. We will replicate the rush through the Boboli Gardens, but in a relaxed way, admiring the magnificent fountains and the architecture of the Pitti Palace, until we get to the Large Grotto, where Langdon and Sienna were almost caught.
We will see the entrance to the Vasari Corridor, before leaving the gardens to walk in the streets of Florence, following the path of the Corridor from outside and visiting the church of Santa Felicita, which worked as the Medici parish church after they moved to the Pitti Palace.
We will walk through Ponte Vecchio, surmounted by the Vasari Corridor, and we will see the Uffizi building from outside. After a break for lunch, we will resume our pursue in Palazzo Vecchio, the main stage of the book (and film), visiting the apartments of Cosimo de Medici, but also the magnificent Hall of the 500. We will hunt for the message “cerca trova” (seek and you shall find) left by Giorgio Vasari in the Battle of Marciano fresco, and we’ll see the Death Mask of Dante Alighieri.
After leaving Palazzo Vecchio, we will walk in the Medieval alleys that lead to Dante’s church. Here, Langdon discovers the next clue, in the poem by Dante Alighieri. We will then reach the Gates of Paradise, the gorgeous doors of Florence Baptistery, admiring the Cathedral and Brunelleschi’s Dome. We will get inside the Duomo, to see a famous portrait of Dante Alighieri, and then we’ll get inside the Baptistery, to see where Langdon finally found the missing Death Mask.

How is our Inferno Tour different?
First of all, this is a private Inferno Tour. You won’t join any large or small group of tourists, it’s meant for you, your family and/or your friends. The Florence Tour Guide will be at your service for the duration of the tour, assisting you in buying skip the line tickets for the Duomo and explaining to you whatever you want to know.
A complete tour
This tour explains in detail the architectural wonders outside and goes in depth inside Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo and the Baptistery, giving you a complete coverage of the main buildings in Florence Italy. Your Duomo tickets remain valid for the next 24 hours and after the tour is finished, you can climb on top of Brunelleschi’s Dome and/or Giotto’s Bell Tower!
Is our Inferno Tour expensive for you? Any agency will price any private 6 hours Florence Walking Tour no less than € 700. Here you can hire directly a local genuine Florence Tour Guide, so you save any agency or middlemen fees, which means paying much less. The tour is certainly expensive if you travel alone, but it’s as low as € 122/person for a family of five: much less than any 6-hour Florence Day Tour offered online and a much better experience than any shared group tour.
