Description

THE SITES, THE SECRETS, PLOTS AND GOSSIPS OF THE MOST POWERFUL FAMILY OF FLORENCE: I MEDICI

After this tour, the most renowned family of the city will hide no secrets anymore for you!

With our guide, you will take the same places, where the Medici lived, loved and plotted, but also supported the most talented artist and make Florence become famous all over the world and being labelled as “the cradle of Renaissance”.

The tour will begin from the first Renaissance palace, commissioned by the Family, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, as well as San Lorenzo’s district and the homonymous church, a Brunelleschi’s masterpiece and the family’s mausoleum annexed to it: The Medici Chapels.

We will continue on the way to Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Cathedral), then Piazza della Repubblica and the adjacent Via de Medici, where the family bought their first house, when they moved to the city from the countryside.

We will reach Palazzo Vecchio, one of their residences, and where the terrible bloody revenge by Lorenzo the Magnificent took place, after his brother Giuliano was murdered during the Pazzi’s conspiracy.

Walking through the Uffizi’s Portico, we will reach Ponte Vecchio; on the way we will reveal all the secrets and anecdotes of the famous Vasarian corridor, the overhead walkway that used to allow Grand Dukes to move between Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, hidden from the rest of the citizens.

The tour will end on the other side of the river Arno, at Palazzo Pitti, to discover the last residence of the family that was even the house of other two dynasties: the Habsburg – Lorraine and the Savoia, king of Italy.
