What to expect

Explore Palazzo Vecchio with an audio guide that will lead you through the sumptuous halls and private apartments of the former residence of the Medici family. The greatest artists of the Renaissance worked in the palace, which is one of the most renowned symbols of the city. Discover priceless treasures, but also the secrets of the powerful royal family.

The palace still preserves the austere architecture of the 14th century with its crenelated top that surrounds the imposing Arnolfo's Tower, the highest viewpoint in the city after Brunelleschi's Dome. The interior of the building, beautifully renovated when the palace became the residence of the Medicis, is instead typically Renaissance and holds priceless treasures and works of art.

After the elegant courtyard designed by Michelozzo, the audio tour continues through the imposing Hall of the Five Hundred, 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. Enjoy total immersion in an incredible series of frescoes, paintings, decorations and statues by Michelangelo, Donatello, Verrocchio, Ghirlandaio, Vasari and many others.
