Medici Florence Tour Itinerary

This guided walking tour of the Florence of the Medici family will take you to some of the Italian city's most important monuments, revealing the history of the richest family in Italy and their huge impact on the art and architecture of the region. Amongst the family members, there were three popes, two queens, various military leaders and a number of politicians, like Lorenzo "The Magnificent". Did you know that this family governed Florence for 350 years?

During the tour, you'll admire the façades of the Basilica of San Lorenzo and the Medici Chapel, where the remains of the family members rest, as well as the Uffizi Gallery, the prestigious gallery originally built to house the city's Magistrates. The route will of course take in the iconic Ponte Vecchio, where you'll hear how the family modified the structure of the bridge in order to adapt it to their bourgeois tastes. 

Your expert guide will explain their history and reveal curious facts surrounding them while you contemplate the famous Vasari Corridor, a covered passageway that connects the palace with the Palazzo Vecchio so that the Medici family could pass freely between the palaces without mixing with the public.

The visit will come to an end at the Palazzo Pitti, a majestic Renaissance palace where the Medici family would hold extravagant parties and banquets as a display of their power and wealth.
