Tragic Decline of a Great Family
Oct 2017 • Friends
I found it depressing how they made fun of the "Last Medici". The decline was emphazised. I should have seen another Opera at St. Mark's church

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 and really makes it something larger than life. Great actors, a ton of interesting history told in a compelling way. Watching this first adds an extra layer of meaning to everything else you'll see in the city.

Wonderful show!

If you’re at all interested in the history of Italy or Florence, you will enjoy this show. It’s in English and in a very small theater (beautiful in itself). It might be helpful to read a short synopsis first so you’ll understand the background, but it basically is the story of the last two Medici heirs. They discuss their history but it’s helpful to know a bit first, I think. It is well worth the time and money.

Great show

Beautifully done, in an atmospheric church, definitely recommend if you have the time whilst in Florence! The Medici family were fundamental to the renaissance and Florence as a whole, and this play gives a very good insight into their history. There is a lot of dialogue, so make sure you listen!

So glad I found this online before departing for Florence. It's a clever and well executed show that guides you through the major moments and people of the compelling Medici Dynasty. It offers multimedia highlights that will peak your interest before you set out on your trip or could be a great way to recap the sights and wonders you've seen if you attend at the end of your trip. 5 stars and kudos to the actors and all involved in the production.

We spent our second night in breathtaking Florence attending The Medici Show. We honestly didn't know what to expect, but the show turned out to be funny, energetic, meaningful and the actors gave us a wondreful performance in which we learned a lot about the impact the Medicis had on art and Science in the Renaissance in Florence. BRAVO👏👏👏

We saw this play on the second day of our trip to Florence and we are so pleased we did. Understanding the influence of the Medici family put the rest of our sightseeing into perspective. The venue was most delightful and the fact that it caters for a small audience only made it all very intimate. The staff were so welcoming and informative and
the acting, and visuals, were brilliant. This is the story of the Medici family rise to power and the legacy to Florence of some of the greatest artworks.

First of all, let me give a huge thanks to Christian and Valentina! They are the real deal! Genuine, kind and caring. They made this amazing experience even better.
The play is beautiful! Very well presented, as both actors have a griping stage presence. The venue was breathtaking. Thank you all for an unforgettable evening.

Medici Dynasty Show - a good experience
Oct 2017 • Family
Our family of five recently attended the Medici Dynasty Show. I was a bit concerned as I am the only theatre-lover in the group but everyone enjoyed the experience. The play is well done and provides a lot of interesting information about the Medici family and the impact they had on Florence. The production was just over one hour long and we all agreed it was the perfect length of time.
