Visit one of the most important buildings of the Renaissance with this Medici Riccardi Palace Guided Tour. You'll explore its main rooms to see how the most powerful family in Florence lived.
Medici Riccardi Palace Guided Tour
At 11 am we'll meet outside the Medici Riccardi Palace. Are you ready to enter the home of the most powerful family of the Italian Renaissance? Let's go!
We'll enter the building and begin to tell you about its origins. Constructed by order of Cosimo de' Medici in the 15th century, the palace was the official residence of this family for over a hundred years, becoming a symbol of their power. In the 17th century, it passed into the hands of another noble saga, the Riccardi family, who added some baroque alterations to the monument.
During the visit, we'll look at the architectural details of the building and recall some scenes from the fictional series Medici: Lords of Florence. Peter the Gotoso, Lorenzo the Magnificent and other members of this family will be present throughout the tour.
We'll visit the Chapel of the Magi, decorated with frescoes by Benozzo Bozzoli, see the residential rooms, walk through the tapestry room, admire the paintings by Luca Giordano... You'll fall in love with this location!
In addition, inside the palace, we'll visit a garden where the famous Michelangelo was initiated in the art of sculpture under the orders of one of Donatello's disciples, Bertoldo, a really important place for the History of Art!
The guided tour will end outside the Medici Riccardi Palace at 1 pm.
