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 and the imposing Arnolfo’s Tower. 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. Visiting 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.
