Description

Meet your host behind the Fountain of Neptune statue in Florence and listen as they provide some facinating information about the Palazzo Vecchio before taking you to the skip-the-line entrance to this Town Hall that was founded in 1299 and built to showcase the grandeur of Renaissance Florence. Be greeted by the elegant arches, columns, and frescoes depicting city views and mythological scenes in the Courtyard of Michelozzo, designed by architect Michelozzo Michelozzi in the 15th century. Enter the Hall of the Five Hundred (Salone dei Cinquecento) a vast hall built to accommodate the meetings of the Grand Council of Florence that features gilded decorations, epic military frescos, and a monumental statue of Hercules and Cacus by Bandinelli. Look up in the hall to see paintings that celebrate the life of Cosimo I. Be surrounded by the artistry and architectural brilliance of the Renaissance where each room tells a story of the city's political and cultural history, from the Medici family's rule to the Republic of Florence.
