Overview

A must see for those wondering what to do in Florence, The Medici Dynasty Show is a striking piece of multimedia theatre in English, covering three hundred years of Florence history through the story of the most famous and influential family to ever rule the city. Performed live within the cradle of the Renaissance, this powerful historical drama portrays the end of the long rule of the Medici Family.

Stellar. Must-see. We stumbled across where they sell the tickets while wandering around, and bought them blindly after talking with the very nice guy for a few minutes. You might not expect much from two actors and a static set, but the projector-work is stunning...More
