Your guided visit is a storytelling experience which will take you on an evocative journey into the past. Learn about about the origins and functions of the tower, as well as famous episodes of Florentine urban life.
Built in 1324, the tower of San Niccolò reveals the city's history, tells of assaults and defenses, of vigils and inquisitive gazes, and of tolls and taxes. Five centuries of Florentine history reveal themselves within these walls.
Your visit of the tower will be crowned by a glorious view onto Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills illuminated by the golden glow of the late afternoon sun.
Florence's city hall, the Palazzo della Signoria, known also as Palazzo Vecchio, has been the symbol of civil power of the city of Florence for more than seven centuries. Your visit begins in the Cortile di Michelozzo, the courtyard adorned with stuccoes and frescoes, crests of the church and city guilds, and frescoes by Giorgio Vasari. There is a fountain in the center - it was built by Battista del Tadda. The putto (chubby child) with the dolphin, which crowns the fountain, is a copy of Andrea del Verocchio’s original, now on display on the second floor.
Step into the Palazzo and continue to the first floor with the Salone dei Cinquecento (Hall of the Five-hundred), the large assembly hall. Here, you'll see the majestic cycle of pictures celebrating the history of Florence and the apotheosis of Cosimo de’ Medici as well as a rich array of statues accompanying Michelangelo’s celebrated sculpture Genius of Victory.
Continue onto the second floor of the museum for a visit of the private rooms of the Medici court, all sumptuously decorated and furnished. Among these is the marvelous Cappella di Eleonora, the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino. Important testimonies of the Palazzo’s oldest decorations are kept in the Sala dell’Udienza (Audience Hall) and the Sala dei Gigli (Hall of the Lilies), where you'll also see the original of Donatello’s sculpture Judith. In the Sala delle Carte Geografiche (Hall of Maps) an exceptionally large globe and more than fifty painted panels provide an extraordinary glimpse of all the parts of the world known in the sixteenth century.
Round off your visit with a stroll through the mezzanine floor for its remarkable collection of paintings and sculptures from the Middle Ages and Renaissance left to the city of Florence by Charles Loeser, the American art historian and collector.
Only Full Price tickets available.
