The city of the Medici family

Start the day with an experience that will let you know the city called the "cradle of the Renaissance" and that will make you feel like a real Florentine!

Our expert guide will let you discover the true story of the Medici family, the most illustrious and powerful family of Florence, whose coat of arms with 6 large spheres is present in many corners of the city.
Let yourself be guided through the streets and squares that have been spectators of the life of this family, and you will understand how the city structure has been influenced by their presence and their artistic taste.

You will pass by Palazzo Medici Riccardi which was their first residence (then moved to Palazzo Pitti); a few steps from here you will find the San Lorenzo church whose simple stone façade hides a very bright interior.

Then you will visit the interiors of the Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace) such as the amazing Salone dei 500, or the Hall of Geographical Maps, and you will also admire the Dante's death mask.

At the end of the tour, let yourself be cuddled by the other reason why many tourists go to Italy: the real Italian breakfast!
Imagine to climb some stairs and arrive at the top of a panoramic terrace where there will be a tasty croissant and a sweet cappuccino waiting for you!
With the background of the roofs and Florentine buildings, immortalize your day in a picture that will make all your friends envious.

Description

In the midst of the Renaissance, I embarked on an unforgettable journey through a private walk. The memory still lingers in my mind to this day. The experience was unique, as I passed through the stunning architecture while taking in the Renaissance atmosphere. It was truly an extraordinary moment.
