Trip Info

Palazzo Vecchio, a government seat during the Renaissance has lots of secret passages, staircases, hidden chests, gates and doorways – each with a different story and a legend.

The tour offers the chance to see Gualtieri di Brienee’s mediaeval stairway. You’ll also get to admire the splendid frescoes and panels of the Salone del Cinquecento, the heavy ceiling of Giorgio Vasari. We pass by the study, the secret chamber of the alchemist, and we will see the private chambers of the Grand Dukes Francesco and Cosimo de’ Medici. These splendid rooms, the ‘Studiolo’ and the ‘Tesoretto’, linked by secret passages, offered a rare chance of privacy for the rulers of Florence.
