A trip to Florence is equal to a trip back in time to the Renaissance era. Discover the architectonic gems & masterpieces brought to life during the Renaissance on a private tour that gives you full access to the best museums, the Duomo, and palaces.  During the Renaissance, Florence had wealthy families that helped this era flourish and one of them was the Strozzi family. Their palace was built as a symbol of power over one family in specific, the Medici’s, and as soon as you step foot in this place, you can see why. Walk through its courtyards and listen to the incredible stories of rivalry between these two families.  Ready for a hidden gem?
