Tour Description

Have you ever been told that the walls are listening? Well, there is a place in Florence where they not only hear, but even speak! In Palazzo Medici Riccardi!

Our guide will leader this “game-tour” where the children will be the main characters and key-pieces to engine the activities that we will propose them during the visit.

This treasure hunting is a game to discover all the messages that the Medici members hid in the 15th century!

We will resolve together the enigmas and finally “read” the frescoes on the walls of this magical place: Capella dei magi.

Through games and activities we will immerse ourselves in a ancient world full of symbols.

Open your eyes and look well! We need you! 

WHAT DO WE VISIT IN THIS TOUR?

This tour will take place in an ancient palace of Florence: Palazzo Medici Riccardi. We will compose together with a few drops of information its history to jump into our game!

What a chest of treasure it is inside! The couryard is full of information and clues that will help us to solve the firts “problems” to lately clim through the monumental stairs to the real treasure chamber of the buildign: La Capella dei Magi (The Chapel of the 3 Kings) an space entirely decorated by a painter of the 15th century where the Medici family hid secret messages and ideas related with the family, the power and what was happening in Florence at that time.

It is like a “shot” of the 15th century but to really understand and interpretate it we just need to put two and two together.

We will finish the visit in another spectacular room called the Gallery of Luca Giordano full of ancient mirrors (a very rare element in a room in the past!) with an incredible decorated ceiling!

 

This palace is an authentic jewel in Florence. Arrive inside means to jump back on time and you will have the opportunity to stroll through the stories and the history.

 

We conceived this tour as a learning and an entertainment at the same time. We will enjoy and resolve toghether the “tasks”.
