What to expect

This enchanting itinerary will take you along a route that is also a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the world's highest concentration of outdoor monuments and works of art that goes on for over a kilometer. Accompanied by a professional guide, you'll discover the most important places in Florence, retracing the fascinating history of the Medici dynasty, the family that laid the foundations of the renaissance, putting their wealth and power at the service of patronage and art.

You'll listen to stories and anecdotes of the intrigues, power struggles, secrets and betrayals of the family who left an unprecedented artistic and cultural heritage to the city and the whole world. During the tour, you'll be able to visit the palaces, monuments, streets and squares where the members of the Medici family lived and used their political and economic power over the city of Florence. You'll walk along the same narrow streets they walked, touch the stones used to build their residences and see the same monuments they saw every day including Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first residence in San Lorenzo district, where you can also find the Medici Chapels.

A few steps away you'll reach the magnificent Cathedral with its imposing Brunelleschi’s Dome and the stunning Palazzo Vecchio, their second residence, which dominates the marvelous Piazza della Signoria. Further on, you'll follow the path of the Vasari Corridor, the spectacular elevated passageway that connects the two banks of the river Arno passing above the enchanting Ponte Vecchio: a secret and comfortable corridor used by the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany to move between their third residence, Palazzo Pitti, and the government offices located inside Palazzo Vecchio, without being seen by citizens.

The majestic Pitti Palace, which conceals the beautiful Boboli Gardens, was the last Florentine residence of the Medici family and will also be the final destination of your incredible journey discovering the art and history of the unique city of Florence! In addition to the walking tour, you'll be given an entrance ticket to the Pitti Palace. With this ticket, you can independently visit the Palatine Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Museum of Fashion and Costume and the Treasure of the Grand Dukes.
