your experience

Take a fascinating guided tour covering the landmarks along the Medici Mile, retracing the footsteps of the world-famous Medici family. Find out the story of how the power, money, and name of the Medici dynasty led to the revolution of expression in the Renaissance era. Your expert guide will help you travel back in time as you explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Marvel at the palaces and monuments that were influenced by the Medici family in one way or another. Whether they lived in or commissioned a place, it became the symbol of power.

Visit their first home, the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. It is located in the San Lorenzo neighborhood, together with the Medici Chapels Church and Mausoleum. The beautiful Cathedral, with its towering Brunelleschi's Dome, and the stunning Palazzo Vecchio, their second house, which dominates the great Piazza Della Signoria, are also just a short distance away.

The magnificent Pitti Palace, which conceals the beautiful Boboli Gardens, is the final Medici palace in Florence and the culmination of your fantastic tour through the art and history of a city that is unmatched in the whole world. Here you will discover an impressive elevated passageway that connects the banks of the Arno, passing by the charming Ponte Vecchio, houses, and Santa Felicita Church called the Vasari Corridor. The Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany used the corridor to travel between the Palazzo Pitti, their third residence, and their offices inside the Palazzo Vecchio without being seen by the public.
