The main actor on Piazza della Signoria is for sure the Palazzo Vecchio (our Town Hall). It was pretty smaller when the oldest part of it was built (at the end of the 1200s beginning of the 1300s). The oldest part of the palace is the one that ” looks like a fortress”. There is a reason why the first sponsors of the palace needed to have a building that was both an administrative building and a fortress. The architect of the oldest part of the palace was Arnolfo di Cambio. He was also the first architect of the Duomo.
Many new parts were added to the first part of the palace over the centuries.
The most significant works were carried out during the administration of Cosimo I de Medici (16th century) who administered from here the city.
The visit inside the palace is about the ” new rooms ” built and decorated during 16′ century and the old rooms that were just re-decorated during the 16th century.
No, you don’t, it is not necessary.
I think that every tour can be boring or not it depends on how a tour guide is able to be “on” during the tour. Besides that, you know your kids better than I do 🙂
Of course, you can, all my tours are tailor-made.
Yes, you can.
With pleasure, if you want. A little bit more than 200 steps. There is an extra ticket (4,00 euro) for that.
