    Private Tour of Dan Brown's Inferno

Private Tour of Dan Brown's Inferno

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 4 hours.

Bring Dan Brown?s bestselling novel, ?Inferno,? to life on this 4-hour walking tour of Florence led by an English-speaking guide.

Overview

Follow in the footsteps of Robert Langdon and Sienna Brooks as they make their breathtaking quest across Florence looking for the death mask made for the poet Dante shortly after he passed away in 1321. Your art historian guide will reveal the symbols, facts, and monuments contained in Dan Brown's bestseller, "Inferno." Even if you have already been to Florence, this tour will show you the city in a way that you've never seen it before!

This 4-hour tour follows the plot of Brown's novel, bringing Dante's spirit realm into sharp focus by visiting all of the sites that Dan Brown refer to in "Inferno." You will meet your guide at Porta Romana, the main entry point into medieval Florence; in the novel, this is where the Italian army block Robert and Sienna's access. Their only way to reach the city center is to cross the 11-acre Boboli gardens past fountains, avenues lined with statues, lovely meadows, and small groves of trees. At the end lies the hidden Grotta del Buontalenti where the novel's protagonists take refuge while running from the flying drone.

Upon exiting the gardens, you will trace the path of the Vasari Corridor from below -- used by Langdon to elude his enemies -- until it reaches the Palazzo Vecchio. The tour continues inside Palazzo Vecchio through hidden rooms and up into the roof trusses of the palace's attic. A visit to the tiny, ornate Studiolo of Francesco I de' Medici is a special treat.

Dante's reconstructed house comes next, followed by the little chapel where he first saw his beloved Beatrice. A few steps away is Piazza del Duomo with its marble-clad cathedral and octagonal baptistery. The tour ends inside the baptistery; here Dante and many other famous Florentines were baptized.
