What to expect

This fascinating walk winds along an enchanting itinerary of a mile through a UNESCO World Heritage area: a mile with the highest concentration in the world of wonderful monuments and open-air works of art! Led by a professional local guide, it will be possible to discover the most important sights of Florence, retracing the fascinating history of the Medici dynasty who put their power and wealth at the service of the patronage and art, laying the foundations of Renaissance.

You'll learn stories and anecdotes of intrigues, power struggles, secrets and betrayals, but also tales of incredible foresight, which made it possible to leave to the city a priceless artistic and cultural heritage site. You'll be able to admire the palaces, monuments, streets and squares where the members of the Medici family lived and used their political and economic power over the city. You'll walk along the same narrow streets where they walked, touch the stones used to build their residences and see the same monuments they saw every day including: Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first residence in San Lorenzo district, where you can also find the Medici Chapels.

A few steps away you'll 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. Further on, you'll follow the path of the Vasari Corridor, the spectacular elevated passageway that connects the two banks of the river Arno passing above the enchanting Ponte Vecchio and crossing houses and the Santa Felicita Church: a secret and comfortable corridor used by the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany to move between their third residence, Palazzo Pitti, and their offices located inside Palazzo Vecchio, without being seen by the citizens.

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! In addition to the walking tour, you'll be given the entrance ticket to the Pitti Palace. With your ticket, you'll be able to visit on your own the Palatine Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Museum of Fashion and Costume and the Treasure of the Grand Dukes.
