Description

Immerse yourself in the power and politics of the Medici Dynasty on this fascinating 3-hour tour

 - Commence your tour of Palazzo Medici, the family's first lordly residence
 - Discover the hidden gems of the palace - Palazzo Pitti and the picturesque Boboli Gardens 
 - Stand in awe of a wide collection of Renaissance paintings and sculpture 
 - Uncover the history and secrets of the Medici family 

The 15th century was Florence's golden age, a period of unprecedented artistic and intellectual achievements. Indeed, it is the city that gave birth to the Renaissance, and home to the Medici family

The House of Medici was an Italian bourgeois family that ruled Florence and, later, Tuscany, from 1434 to 1737 (except for two brief intervals). Wherever you look in Florence, you will meet the Medici – not just their busts and coat of arms but the magnificent churches, palaces and works of art they commissioned. Discover how the history of the Medici is riddled with dramatic rises and ruinous falls- filled with secrets and scandals

This tour will focus on the amazing history of their rise to power and the palazzo intrigues, and will let you know more about their private life by visiting the hidden gems of their main Palace, Palazzo Pitti, and the gorgeous Boboli Gardens. Palazzo Pitti, which has also been the residence of the King of Italy for a brief period in the late 18th century, houses important collections of paintings and sculpture, porcelains and a costumes, besides providing a magnificently decorated historical setting which extends to the Boboli Gardens, one of the earliest Italian gardens famous also for its fountains and grottoes. This green heart of Florence can be considered an open air museum, rich in history and art, stories, secret corners and fascinating routes
