With our Medieval Florence Tour for Kids you will transported back to the time of Medieval Florence, which was ruled by the powerful Medici family and was the cradle of Renaissance. During the tour your children will actually experience how it was to live in Florence at that time, between 14th and 16th centuries.
During this fun family tour you will be accompanied by a child-friendly private guide. Your first stop during this 4-hour walking tour will be Palazzo Davanzati.
Built in the 14th century, it has belonged to the Davanzati Family, a household of rich merchants, until 1838. Today it houses the Museum of the Ancient Florentine House. In the Museum you will actually witness how a Florentine family used to live. You will admire the beautiful wall decorations and visit the rooms of the palace, such as the Room of the Parrots, the bathroom, the bedrooms and the study.
Your Medieval Florence Tour for Kids will continue to the impressive Palazzo Strozzi. You will admire from the outside one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces in Italy. Filippo Strozzi, head of the Strozzi household, had the palace built in the 15th century. The palace was so huge that 15 buildings nearby were demolished to make enough room for Strozzi Palace. Your private guide will tell you all about the history of the Strozzi family and how it was to live in a wealthy family in Florence at that time.
After the visit of the exteriors of Palazzo Strozzi, you will do a stop to taste a delicious ice cream, before immersing yourselves in one of the most important must-sees in Florence: the Academy Museum where the famous David by Michelangelo is preserved.
On request: we can organize for you a first-hand experience in one authentic artisan shop. Usually we arrange for families to stop in a local workshop where Florentine artisans produce the worldwide famous Florentine hand-decorated paper. Your children will learn from a real artisan how to create this precious paper.
