What to Expect
Discover with your guide the extraordinary beauty of one of the most renowned and photographed squares and historical palaces in the world: Piazza della Signoria with the sculptural masterpieces of Loggia dei Lanzi. It is an incomparable "open-air museum" and the elegant Palazzo Vecchio with the embattled tower has been the political headquarters and one of the symbols of the city for centuries. Founded in 1299, it later was transformed by the famous deMedici family, which became the forefront of their home palace. The square is filled with sculptural wonders and its massive, Romanesque buildings make for impressive photos.
