Built in the 14th century, it 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 Medieval 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 one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces in Italy from the outside. 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 what it was like to live in a wealthy family in Florence at that time.
After the visit of the exteriors of Palazzo Strozzi, you will take a break 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 an authentic artisan shop. Usually we arrange for families to stop in a local workshop where Florentine artisans produce the world famous Florentine hand-decorated paper. Your children will learn from a real artisan how to create this precious paper.
