The Palazzo Vecchio is one of the essential wonders to visit in Florence. Symbol of the "people's power", that merchant and artisan class that became rich in the late Middle Ages, it's a building full of surprises thanks to the Medici family, who fully transformed the inside with statues, frescoes and even some secret corridors and chambers .

Delight your sight and feelings by visiting this formidable piece of history! Together we’ll explore the fresh 1500s and discover why they contain Austrian landscapes; We’ll admire the magnificent “Salone del Cinquecento”, scene of the famous Tom Hanks’ movie “Inferno”, and understand all its several transformations.

We'll also dive into the Medici's intrigues, a dynasty that changed global history, by visiting the family rooms, with highly significant artwork like the Giuditta and Oloferne, by Donatello, and Niccolò Macchiavelli's personal office. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this jewel with a welcoming expert in the topic!
