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. Roam around the wide interior of this palace along with a guide who will carefully narrate the history and events that have occurred inside the palace. You will also learn about the specific artists who worked on the frescoes, courtyards, paintings, sculptures, and architecture found in the palace.

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. Continue on to reach a higher view of the city as you climb the stairs to Arnolfo's Tower which can give you a dizzying yet beautiful panoramic view around the city of Florence during the sunset.
