|Palazzo Pitti||–||Non si effettua di lunedì|
As the Italians say, “Sloth is the father of all vices”.
Excessive leisure drives people away from their duties and moral obligations and pushes them towards other sins. This is why Dante has the sinners lie in the mud, unable to move, forever striving to get a breath of air.
This tour will take you to the places where the Medici ran away from their hardship, the Treasure of the Grand Dukes at the Pitti Palace, and the Boboli Gardens.
Here, the Medici could not be bothered with ruling the State but would rather receive guests and threw lavish parties in luxuriously decorated rooms, where grotesque theatrical performance were staged, or went for long, soothing walks along the paths of the most perfect garden man ever created.
They also delighted themselves with odd alchemic experiments inside magical grottoes, wooed beautiful women under the shade of trees, and collected precious bones of saints to display in marvellous pieces of art. If you are curious about the hedonistic lifestyle the Medici led, come to this relaxing and decadent tour and you will find out what the princes did when they did not want to work!
