Florence’s town hall building dates back to 1299 when it was built to host the government leaders of medieval Florence. You’ll come to understand how its architecture, art, sculptures, and paintings contribute to create a rich and complex representation of the city.   Admire masterpieces by celebrated artists of the Renaissance scattered throughout the Palazzo’s many halls, chambers, and courtyards.

Two of us were the only turists guided by Laura. She was very forthcoming with information and the answers to our questions - even elementary ones. She made the tour very interesting to us with stories of the background history and of the interesting characters involved. The tour was a good starting point of the tour of Firenze.
