Raffaello (Raphael): his extraordinary life and artworks in Florence

Raffaello (Raphael): his extraordinary life and artworks in Florence

Raffaello Sanzio from Urbino contributed to beautify the city of Florence during his stay in our city from 1504 to 1508. He died at the age of 37 in 1520. On the occasion of the anniversary of his death we have created a special tour about this undiscussed painter. The Palatine Gallery , Palazzo Pitti, houses the best Raphael paintings in Florence, perhaps even a portrait of the beautiful Fornarina in the sweet face of the Madonna della Seggiola (Vergin Mary of the Chair). You will see the Palace where Raphael met Leonardo’s Monna Lisa in Florence and got totally impressed. Raphael was also an original architect of smart taste: Raphael’s style palaces in Florence are very different from the Florentine Renaissance-style buildings. Raffaello was handsome, kind and intelligent, everybody loved him: your guide will tell you the story of Raphael's short but intense life, full of love, women and favours by his patrons!
