What to expect
For centuries the political heart of the city, the Palazzo Vecchio was built atop ancient Roman ruins and carries the legacy of both medieval and Renaissance Florence. To explore this historical treasure, meet your local guide and get an overview of the building’s past and importance before stepping inside. Wander in awe through the enormous ‘Salone dei Cinquecento,’ where the two greatest Florentine artists of their time, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, were once commissioned to adorn the walls with giant murals. Admire other masterpieces by Michelangelo, Donatello and other Renaissance greats throughout the palazzo. See the mysterious symbols and artworks that inspired Dan Brown’s novel ‘Inferno’ (and the film of the same name), such as an inscription ‘Cerca e Trova’ (‘Seek and you shall find’) written atop a fresco by Giorgio Vasari. Learn about the building’s transformation from a medieval town hall into the private residence of Duke Cosimo I de Medici during the 15th century. During the tour, visit every section of the palazzo, the map room, captivating terraces and Arnolfo’s Tower, which rises majestically above the city. Tour size is limited for a more personalized, small-group experience.

Martina was amazing
Jun 2019 • Friends
This was a very interesting tour. Martina was very knowledgeable and provided us with a first rate history of the Medici's and the Republic's influence on the development of Florence. Highly recommend.

What a start!
May 2019
The first tour of our visit and thanks to Riccardo, our guide, the greatest start we could have had. So knowledgable and full of details the visit was great and the added recommendations of less well known museums to visit added to our trip. We can’t thank you enough.

Surprising history!
Mar 2019
We didn't know just how gorgeous the inside of this building was, and this tour was absolutely wonderful. I don't think the palazzo would have been half as meaningful without a guide to walk us through it! Our guide, Viola M, was very excited and knowledgeable about the palace and Florence in general.
