Strolling from one side to the other of Florence city center, we will get familiar with the very mixed fortunes of one of its most famous families: the Medici. We will spend two hours among gossip and truth, talking about the well known as well as the unrecognized members of the family.
From Santissima Annunziata Square to the Pitti Palace there will be no time to get bored!
We will pass by the Palazzo Medici, the family’s first lordly residence. We will stop in front of the church of San Lorenzo, built according to the family’s taste and sense of scale. We will then walk to the Duomo, where we shall discover the family’s involvement in the construction of what is still today considered a miracle of Renaissance architecture: the cupola designed by Brunelleschi. From here we will move towards the heart of the political power of the city, the Palazzo Vecchio and, after crossing the oldest bridge in Florence, we will reach the fulcrum of the Medici’s ambition: Palazzo Pitti.
