Full description
In the recently opened Museum in Florence about the history of the Medici family, you will find the story of all the members of the Medici family; beautiful ladies, cardinals, popes, alchemists, knights and wives of kings, like Catherine and Mary. The Medici were patrons of paintings, sculptures and palaces, scientific discoveries and the best musicians of the time. The Medici specialized guide will guide you along this fascinating journey.

Among the many exhibits are the hologram of Cosimo The First's grand-ducal crown, the official dress of Eleonora di Toledo and their set table! In the museum, be carried away by the Renaissance music of the compositions of Lorenzo the Magnificent and by the beautiful and unfortunate Isabella de 'Medici, who was murdered by her husband out of jealousy.
