Description

Go on an exciting historical tour of the Palazzo Vecchio, a medieval palace used in the 14th century as the government centre of the Florentine Republic.

The courtyard made by Michelozzo, an Italian sculptor and architect, will welcome you on your first visit to the palace. Then, you will get to walk around the Hall of the 500, a hall designed to fit 500 people in during important decision-making situations for the city.

Next, see some of the palace's great rooms such as the intimate study of Francesco I de' Medici, the private apartments of Cosimo I de' Medici and Eleonora of Toldeo, the spacious and grandiose boardrooms, and the wide selection of artworks from Italy's best known artists.

Make your way to the palace's top-most part as you climb the stairs leading to the ancient battlements patrol path where the city guards patrolled in the past to look out for enemies and trespassers.
