Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Via Camillo Cavour 1-3, 50129, Florence Italy

Begin your tour at the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, which is the main residence of the first branch of the Medici family. The Medici family was connected to most of the other elite families of the time through marriages of convenience, partnership, or employment so the family had a central position in the social network. Several families had systematic access to the rest of the elite families only through the Medici family. Some examples of these families include the Bardi, Altoviti, Ridolfi, Cavalcanti, and the Tornabuoni. This has been suggested as a reason for the rise of the Medici family.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: San Lorenzo, San Lorenzo, Florence, Tuscany
