Full description

Led by a local guide, explore the most important sights of Florence and retrace the fascinating history of the Medici dynasty. Get priority entry to one of Florence’s biggest museums and admire the Palatine Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art.

Begin with the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first residence in the San Lorenzo district, where you can find their Church and mausoleum: Medici Chapels.

A few steps away, 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.

Follow from the outside the path of the Vasari Corridor, a secret and comfortable corridor used by the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany, to move between the Palazzo Pitti and their offices located inside the Palazzo Vecchio, without being seen by the citizens.

Finally, arrive at the majestic Pitti Palace, which hides the marvelous Boboli Gardens, is the last Florentine residence of the Medici and is also the last stage of your incredible journey into the art and history of a city unique in the world.
