Florence tour discovering the Medici family and the Vasari Corridor

This enchanting itinerary will take you along a route that is a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll get to see over a kilometer of the world's highest concentration of outdoor monuments and works of art. Accompanied by a professional guide, you'll discover the most important places in Florence, retracing the fascinating history of the Medici dynasty, the family that laid the foundations of the renaissance, putting their wealth and power at the service of patronage and art.

You'll listen to stories and anecdotes of the intrigues, power struggles, secrets and betrayals of the family who left an unprecedented artistic and cultural heritage to the city and the whole world. During the tour, you will visit the palaces, monuments, streets and squares where the members of the Medici family lived and demonstrated their political and economic power. You'll walk along the same narrow streets they walked, touch the stones used to build their residences and see the same monuments they would see every day, such as Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first residence in San Lorenzo district. Here, you can also find their church and their mausoleum -- the Medici Chapels.

Just a few steps away, you'll reach the magnificent cathedral with its imposing Brunelleschi’s Dome and the enchanting Palazzo Vecchio, the second residence of the family, which dominates the marvelous Piazza della Signoria. Further on, you'll find the Vasari Corridor, a spectacular elevated passageway that connects the two banks of the river Arno passing over Ponte Vecchio. It is a secret corridor used by the Grand Dukes of Tuscany to move between Palazzo Pitti, the third residence of the family, and government offices located inside Palazzo Vecchio, without being seen by citizens.

The majestic Pitti Palace, which conceals the beautiful Boboli Gardens, was the last Florentine residence of the Medici family and will also be the final destination of your incredible journey to discover the art and history of this unique city!

No pongo mala ya que la guia Helena es un encanto de persona y lo hizo de maravilla.Por lo demas fatal.El tour era solo por la calle,cuando en el programa ponen que visitas tres palacios y el corredor vasariano,el cual esta clausurado por completo.No se entiende la información al comprar.

Ohne Probleme
Nicht lohnenswert und zu teuer, um nur die Museen und historischen Bauten von außen zu sehen. Meistens werden die Tours auch zusammengelegt, sodass eine Person zweisprachig den Guide für eine Touristengruppe macht und die Zeit einfach zu kurz kommt für detailreiche Erläuterungen.
