What to expect

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.

Discover Palazzo Vecchio, one of their residences and the place where the bloody revenge of Lorenzo il Magnifico was carried out following the murder of his brother Giuliano, assassinated during the Pazzi conspiracy. Past the Uffizi gallery, you will cross Ponte Vecchio.

During the walk, you will be revealed the anecdotes and secrets of the famous Vasari Corridor, the elevated passage that allowed the Grand Dukes to move between Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti without being seen by the citizens. The tour will end at Palazzo Pitti in the Oltrarno district, the last residence of the Medici family and of two other dynasties: the House of Hapsburg-Lorraine and the Kings of Italy, the Savoy.
