Discover the places, secrets and history of Florence's most powerful dynasty: the Medici. After this private tour, the city's most famous family will no longer have any secrets for you! With your guide you will visit the places where they lived, loved, conspired but also sponsored the greatest artists, making Florence "the cradle of the Renaissance" famous throughout the world.
The tour starts from the first palace built for the family: Palazzo Medici Riccardi, which houses important works of art and the Magi Chapel. You will discover the district of San Lorenzo, where the family members lived and were buried, and continue to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Repubblica and the adjacent Via de Medici, where they settled when they moved to Florence from the Mugello.
