Group Guided Tours of Palazzo Vecchio

The Group Guided Tours of Palazzo Vecchio will lead you in the symbol of the political power of Florence, whose original design is attributed to Arnolfo di Cambio.

For more than seven centuries the Palazzo della Signoria, better known as Palazzo Vecchio, is the symbol of the civil authorities of the city of Florence. It was built between the late thirteenth and early fourteenth century to house the Council of the Republic of Florence, the supreme organ of government of the city. Over the centuries has undergone a number of expansions but also transformations.

In the middle decades of the sixteenth century, Cosimo I de ‘Medici destines this building to the ducal palace, its current appearance is due in large part to these great works of renovation and interior decoration carried out to adapt it to the new function. After the transfer of the Medici court to Palazzo Pitti it continued to host the Dressing Room and various government offices, until in 1871 when it became the headquarters of the Municipality of Florence. Up to the present day Palazzo Vecchio houses the headquarters of the City Council and a precious museum.

The Museum is home to beautiful rooms and private apartments fruit of these Renaissance architectural transformations. Each of the Palazzo Vecchio environment is rich in history and secrets, some of these still unresolved.

Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most dynamic museums of Florence with itineraries designed for families with children or single or group visitors. The secret paths and the tower offer ideas for fun and mysterious visit to discover. The magnificent Salone dei Cinquecento was commissioned by Girolamo Savonarola in the short period in which he held the power of the city before being executed as a heretic in 1498 in Piazza della Signoria.
