The Uffizi art gallery offers you a wide range of gold-background panels, refined paintings, ancients’ sculptures, but also an insight into the Medici family. From the Uffizi terrace you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace) and the key monuments of Florence.

And then, after the art of Renaissance, let’s discover the Medici Family Intrigues 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.
