Palazzo Medici Riccardi
 

The Medici Riccardi Palace offers the visitor the chance to retrace over four centuries of history of art, architecture and collecting in Florence. The true gem of the palazzo is the Chapel of the Magi, accessible through the elegant seventeenth-century staircase. It is one of the most beautiful and famous building in Florence: built in the mid-fifteenth century by Michelozzo for the Medici, of whom it has been the first residence, it became the prototype of the Renaissance residential architecture. In 1659, the Medici sold the palace to the Riccardi, who extended the building to the north and partly renovated the interiors. The interventions were marked by Baroque splendour and spectacular sophisticated erudition.
