Type of Service: Palatine Gallery and Boboli Gardens Walking Tour - private tour

There are many sights you can’t miss in Florence—that all happen to be in the Oltrarno!  Just walking across the River Arno brings you to one of our favorite neighborhoods in Florence: the Oltrarno. (The name means “beyond the Arno.”) Discover and explore the Palazzo Pitti, Palatine Gallery, Boboli Gardens and local Florentine artisans shops along the way.

The Palazzo Pitti located just over the Ponte Vecchio from the heart of Florence, a Renaissance-era palace that belonged to Luca Pitti, a Florentine banker; the Medici family bought it in 1549, and it became the ruling family’s main residence.  The palace today is home to the Palatine Gallery, with more than 500 paintings, most from the Renaissance.

Boboli Gardens - At 11 acres, the Boboli Gardens make up one of the biggest public parks in central Florence. Laid out originally in the 16th century, the Boboli Gardens—which are attached to the Palazzo Pitti—are formal gardens, with a twist: They have outdoor sculptures including ancient Roman statues and, most famously, striking Mannerist works, including a grotto that was carved to look as if it was dripping with stalactites, and houses copies of important Renaissance and Baroque works.

Florentine artisans - Florence is known for its artisans—The whole area around the Piazza di Santo Spirito still thrums with artisanal traditions such as bookbinding and handmade marbled paper, mosaics handcrafted from Murano glass, handmade jewelry and more.

Basilica of S. Maria del Santo Spirito - This church, often simply called “Santo Spirito,” might be unassuming-looking from the outside. But it has a serious pedigree: It was designed by Brunelleschi. Yes, the guy behind the dome. Although his facade for the basilica never was completed, the interior, with its Latin cross and 40 side chapels, is fairly true to his original design. The tour will end at a popular cafe in the Piazza.

Located about 35 km south of Florence, well off the main roads, Greve in Chianti is considered by many as the gateway to the Chianti wine region and boasts an attractive, triangular-shaped piazza that has been a marketplace since the Middle Ages. The Falorni family owns the town's three main tourist attractions: the Museo del Vino, a huge cellar where you can sample and buy wine and the oldest butcher shop in Italy. Here you will sample a glass of wine, meats, and cheeses in the outdoor piazza. After the wine and food tasting, you will have time to explore the shops in the main square. (If you happen to be around Greve the first or second week of September, don't miss its yearly wine fair, during which a variety of wines, cheeses, and other local products are available for tasting and purchase).

You will visit a popular butcher shop - Antica Macelleria Cecchini (a butcher shop + restaurant famous for its Florentine T-bone steak): Dario Cecchini – the hilarious owner offers you witty conversations, wine, and salami when you enter his shop.

The final stop on this amazing tour is a small winery/farm where you will discover the famous Chianti wines and the fine products as extra virgin olive oil, honey, and balsamic vinegar.  The private wine tour takes 1 hour and you will see the old winery, rich of finest wines as Super Tuscans and Dincanto, produced in a limited edition, then you will go to the nearby Acetaia, fully aged balsamic vinegar.

The Tuscany wine tasting tour includes lunch with one of its famous fresh dishes such lasagne, pappardelle, tagliatelle or the typical ravioli of Maremma, stuffed with fresh ricotta and herbs, as well as potato gnocchi seasoned with traditional sauces. And different varieties of honey, cheese, and salami accompanied by excellent Chianti Classico wines and dessert.

After lunch, enjoy a relaxing car ride back to Florence as your English-speaking tour guide shares great conversations with you and answers any questions you might have on your drive.

  • Detailed Itinerary

    The Uffizi was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 for Cosimo I de'Medici to house the Granducal Magistratures of Tuscany. The construction was later continued by Alfonso Parigi and Bernardo Buontalenti and completed in 1581. As the time passed, the top floor loggia became an exhibition of the imperial collection of ancient sculpture, artwork and artifacts.

    Over the years, more sections of the palace were recruited to exhibit paintings and sculpture collected or commissioned by the Medici. According to Vasari, who was not only the architect of the Uffizi but also the author of Lives of the Artists, published in 1550 and 1568, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo gathered at the Uffizi "for beauty, for work and for recreation”.

    In 1565, on the occasion of the marriage of his son Francesco to Giovanna d'Austria, Cosimo I asked Vasari to design a raised passageway connecting Palazzo Vecchio with Palazzo Pitti, the new residence of the family. The passage starts from the government palace, Palazzo Vecchio, goes through the Uffizi, then runs parallel to the river above a portico and crosses over the Ponte Vecchio. The Corridor continues through the facade of the church of Santa Felicita to reach the Boboli Gardens.
