This fascinating walk winds along an enchanting itinerary of a mile, which crosses for the whole duration aUNESCO World
Heritage area: a mile with the highest concentration in the world of wonderful monuments and open-air works of art! Led by a

the Medici dynasty, the family which put its power and wealth at the service of the patronage and art, laying so the foundations
of Renaissance. You will learn stories and anecdotes of intrigues, power struggles, secrets and betrayals, but also tales of
incredible foresight, which made possible to leave to the city and to the whole world, a priceless artistic and cultural heritage.
You will be able to admire the palaces, the monuments, the streets and the squares where the members of the Medici family
lived and used their political and economic power over the city. You will walk along the same narrow streets where they
walked, touch the stones used to build their residences and see the same monuments that they were used to see every
day: Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first residence in San Lorenzo district, where you can find as well their Church and
mausoleum: Medici Chapels. A few steps away you will reach then, the magnificent Cathedral, with its imposing Brunelleschi’s
Dome and the stunning Palazzo Vecchio, their second residence, which dominates the marvelous Piazza della Signoria. Further
on you will follow from the outside the whole path of the Vasari Corridor, the spectacular elevated passageway which
connects the two banks of the river Arno, passing along the enchanting Ponte Vecchio and crossing houses and Santa Felicita
Church: a secret and comfortable corridor used by theMedici Grand Dukes of Tuscany, to move between the Palazzo Pitti,
their third residence, and their offices located inside the Palazzo Vecchio, without being seen by the citizens. The majestic Pitti
Palace, which hides the marvelous Boboli Gardens, is the last Florentine residence of the Medici and is also the last stage of
