Palazzo Vecchio, which stands majestically on Florence skyline, is one of the most recognized symbols of the city. Built during the Middle-Ages, it still preserves the austere architecture of the fourteenth century, with its crenellated top that surrounds the imposing Arnolfo’s Tower which, with its 95 meters high, is the highest viewpoint of the city, after  Brunelleschi’s Dome. The indoor parts of the building, beautifully renovated in the '500 when the Palace became the house of Medici, are instead typically Renaissance and hold priceless treasures and works of art. In the sumptuous halls and the private apartments of the family, worked the greatest artists of the period. Visit the palace means to stroll among the wonders of Renaissance and retrace its history, discovering also the secrets and tales linked to the powerful Medici family. The elegant courtyard by Michelozzo, welcomes you at the beginning of a visit that will enable you to admire the famous and beautiful “Hall of the 500”, the charming and intimate study of Francesco I de’ Medici, the beautiful private apartments of Eleonora of Toledo and Cosimo I de’ Medici and the sumptuous and stunning boardrooms, in an incredible series of frescoes, paintings, decorations and statues of the greatest Renaissance artists as Michelangelo, Donatello, Verrocchio, Vasari, Ghirlandaio and Bronzino, just to mention some of them. After this incredible full immersion in the art masterpieces, you will access with your guide to the top of the building, on the ancient "battlemented patrol path", which offers a spectacular walk around the top of the palace where to enjoy an original tour of the city from the height of 40 meters! The spectacular sight of Florence monuments at Sunset will remain in the best memories of your stay in Florence! The most enterprising and tireless of you, will continue the climb up to the top of Arnolfo’s Tower, to end the tour with a stunning “aerial view” of the whole city and its hills.

Unforgettable

A perfect evening. The guide was very professional. He looked like a university professor, with perfect English and stunning knowledge. We were very fortunate to have him. The scenery from the tower in the twilight remains unforgettable.
Best sunset ever

The best sunset of my life! We joined this tour in September and we really loved that! The guide Fabio was such a nice man, so passionate about art and he spoke English like a native. The view from the Tower of the palace is simply breathtaking.
The view is stunning!

Loved this tour, the guide was prepared and open to any question, the view from the top is stunning! After walking around Florence city center is good to see the town from a different point of view.
Increíble visita

La visita a Palazzo Vecchio fue increíble, el guía nos contó la historia del palacio y sus secretos (tiene muchos!). Buena la idea de hacer el tour al atardecer, la vista desde arriba es preciosa!
