What to expect

Did you enjoy the Medici series? Would you like to visit the symbolic places of the family that made Florence the cradle of the Renaissance? Would you like to deepen the characters of Cosimo the Elder and Lorenzo the Magnificent? Do you want to see where their enemies, Alberti, Strozzi and Pazzi, once lived? If the answer is yes, then join this tour and find out all about the family that ruled Florence for over three centuries.

Together with an experienced guide, you'll visit Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the royal residence that was built in the 15th century and is considered the first Renaissance palace in the world. Visit the Chapel of the Magi by Benozzo Gozzoli, the fifteenth-century fresco with the true portraits of the family members, and the garden where Michelangelo learned to sculpt thanks to Bertoldo di Giovanni, a pupil of Donatello.
