Medici Riccardi Palace (Palazzo Medici Riccardi) Tours

Forming part of the UNESCO World-Heritage Listed Historic Centre of Florence, Palazzo Medici Riccardi on Via Cavour was designed by Michelozzo in the mid 15th century for the all-powerful Medici family, who then sold it on to the equally rich Riccardi clan in 1659. The palazzo has been the property of the Italian state since 1874 and despite its rather stolid appearance, with rough-hewn blocks of stone used on the lower floors, it is considered a masterpiece of early Renaissance architecture. Built around Michelozzo’s lovely arcaded and colonnaded central courtyard, much of the palace operates as an art museum, featuring a chronological journey through art in Florence.

Among the temporary exhibitions, richly furnished apartments and two libraries of rare tomes (entrance to the latter two is on Via Ginori), the palazzo’s magnificent Galleria features Baroque paintings under a wildly frescoed ceiling by Luca Giordano but the highlight of a visit is Benozzo Gozzoli’s sublime jewel-like fresco in the first-floor Cappella dei Magi; he painted The Procession of the Magi in 1459 and it works its way around three of the chapel’s four walls. Various members of the Medici dynasty feature in the procession following the kings, who are clad in sumptuous robes and sit on fine horses. Due to the chapel’s diminutive size, numbers allowed in are limited to 10 visitors every seven minutes.
