Discover the old palace without the crowds


Unique night tour of Palazzo Vecchio - the most spectacular palace in Florence that dominates its main square, piazza della Signoria. Historic seat of the Florentine government, its impressive halls explode with stories of political and love passions, ambitions of the Medici family and impressive works of art. Virtually every famous man of Florence passed through within its walls: from Dante to Machiavelli, from Leonardo to Michelangelo, from the dominical monk Savonarola to Italy's ex-PM Renzi. Statues by Michelangelo and Donatello, paintings by Allori and Vasari, and the famous riddle fresco hiding the lost Leonardo da Vinci - there is no shortage of marvels. Visited in the evening, when the tourist crowds are gone, restores this palace to its authentic majesty.
