The Secret Passages of Florence

*walking tour *private

Step into the prodigious Palazzo Vecchio, home to some of the most powerful in Florence’s history.  The “old palace” has hosted the likes of the Medici family, Francesco I, and the Duke of Athens who actually built a secret passageway in fear of being attacked.  The palace is full of clues that indicate the turmoil and secrets that each inhabitant kept.  Like the city of Florence, it is frozen in time.  Filled with mystery.  Take the unique opportunity and navigate your way through.
