Medici Family in Florence. Banking, commerce, and religious influence led the Medici Family to become one of the most powerful families in Florence, while tasting some of the best products of the Florentine food culture such as a Gottino (glass of Chianti wine), a selection of traditional Salami, coccoli (deep-fried dough bites) and last a delicious home-made Gelato.

The Medici story began when they migrated to Florence from a little town in Tuscany. Our professional guide will escort you on a tour across years of history safely preserved within the architecture, palaces, churches and art that were sponsored by the Medici Family.

During the tour we will have the opportunity to observe Palazzo Medici, Palazzo Vecchio the most important civil building in the city; where will also discuss the open air sculptures found within the Loggia della Signoria. We will also observe the Pitti Palace which was home to the Medici family.

Strolling along the banks of the Arno will bring us to Ponte Vecchio, a bridge famous for its beautiful gold jewelry; on the top of the bridge is the hidden Vasari Corridor, which allowed the Medici family to travel secretly and safely from their home at Pitti Palace to the government building, Palazzo Vecchio.

After this tour you will have time at leisure and continue with the visit of the Accademia Gallery. In this 2nd part of the tour you will discover more about the imposing statue of a young hero, David, which became the symbol of the Republic of Florence.

This museum displays other important sculptures by Michelangelo, such as I Prigioni (The Incarcerated) and San Matteo (St Matthew), together with an interesting collection of religious paintings and panels.
