EXPLORE FLORENCE THROUGH THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF THE HOUSE OF MEDICI

The Medici have been called the “fathers of the Renaissance” because they were men and women of genius far ahead of their times. However, their lives and patronage of the arts is still surrounded by a deep aura of mystery. One aspect that bemuses tourists and Florentines alike is how they could possibly manage to amass such a fortune, commission the most amazing artworks of all times, and influence the politics of all Italian city-states for nearly four centuries without getting overthrown or, worse, killed!

Going through documents, letters and all sorts of written sources, we have found out that behind the beacons of the Renaissance lurked sinister shadows of darkness. The Seven Deadly Sins of the House of Medici will put the rulers of Florence in the spotlight, not only as brilliant and groundbreaking characters, but also manipulative, vengeful and lustful lords (and ladies!). These original tours are guaranteed to show you how the sins of the Medici were able to produce masterpieces…
