Full description
Discover the amazing story of the ruling family of Florence, from the very beginning to the extinction of the Dynasty.

The tour will start at San Marco Square and your guide will show you how the Medici grew their importance, from a simple family coming from the Mugello area (North of Florence) to become one of the most important in the Renaissance Period.

Really beautiful and engaging experience, our guide Ilaria spent more time than expected to tell us about the city and its history. Nice, clear, engaging and very well prepared. We will definitely do other tours! It deserves a lot to go beyond the surface of self-guided tours and really get to know the history and monuments.

Very pleasant tour, received a lot of info. Only downside: not clear on site that sights (eg cathedral and medical Chapels) were not included in Tour. We thought we were going to visit this and had to pay an entrance fee on the spot but this was not. Nice to take the tour during a stay in Florence.

Giacomo was fantastic and had amazing knowledge of not only the Medici family, but also of art and other aspects of Florence and Renaissance history. He made several excellent recommendations for further excursions off the usual tourist lists and freely gave us some additional time when he saw our interest. He delivered all with a true passion and is a credit to his craft as a tour guide.
