Medici Tour - from bankers to Princes
Description

The Medici dynasty is one of the most fascinating ones in history. They climbed the social ladder from merchands and bankers to becoming Royal Highnesses in just about a century!

In this tour we will discover their palaces, their symbols, their stories. We will learn about the lives of people like Cosimo the Elder, Lorenzo the Magnificent, Cosimo the First Grand Duke of Tuscany and also the less known but equally fascinating family members that dot the history of this great house.
Finally we will visit Palazzo Vecchio, Florence's seat of power, and see works by 
Giorgio Vasari, Giambologna, Michelangelo, DonatelloVerrocchio, Bronzino and the overall magnificence of a Medieval castle turned into a Renaissance palace.
