Tour description

After "The essence of Florence", "The Golden Age",
The Medici family has given birth to women and men of such an open mind that they have favored the greatest cultural renaissance in the world: the Renaissance."

Our watchword? Storytelling!
Ours are Italian local guides and they speak English perfectly.
It is fascinating to understand how in just over a century a humble country family managed to become the most powerful dynasty in Europe.

What were their secrets?
What role did the Medici women play?
How did they become so rich and powerful?
How do we still recognize their hidden symbols scattered in every corner of Florence?
How have they influenced works by artists such as Botticelli and Michelangelo?

Let's find out together during this walk surrounded by the art of the most vibrant city in the world.

She gave lots of information and is useful to tourists who is visiting Florence for the first time. The group was too big and she has to split us into two separate groups. Otherwise we manage to hear her even though Florence was packed with thousand of tourists!!!!
