What to expect

Discover the everyday life and habits of the Medici family on a guided tour of Palazzo Vecchio, whose richly decorated rooms constituted the magnificent residence of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici, his wife Eleanor of Toledo, and their eleven children. After the guided tour you can stay in the museum as long as you want and continue to explore the palace's rooms and art collection on your own.

Your guide will show you the Ducal Apartments, including the secret study room of Duchess Bianca Cappello, usually closed to the public. Witness the palace’s pomp and splendor as you imagine the incredible festivities and sumptuous banquets that took place in the Great Hall, and satisfy your curiosity about more personal and private details, such as the bathroom arrangements or the flowering terraces cultivated by the Duchess.

The tour culminates with a visit to the Gallery of Renaissance Costumes, where you'll see some replicas of the dresses that belonged to the members of the ducal family: Duke Cosimo I de' Medici, his wife Eleanor of Toledo, their children Bia, Giovanni, Lucrezia, and Garcia. You'll have a chance to see and touch – and sometimes even wear - cloaks, robes, shoes, feathered hats, jewels, and ornaments in the style of the 16th century, as well as play with some of the young princes' toys.
