About the tour

This is not a tour of territory, but a tour of the mind of Niccolo Machiavelli, the political philosopher known as the bad boy of the Italian Renaissance. This infamous Florentine is known for teaching that "the ends justify the means" in his classic book of advice The Prince. This book has been applied to politics of course, but also to business and relationships. It is very useful no matter what your profession or problem. I will talk a bit about his life, and will bring in some of his choicest quotes and ideas. This session will last 45 minutes. I will do my best when answering your questions to channel Machiavelli, asking "What Would Machiavelli do?

This is wonderful and reminds me of Florence and Machiavelli who is often read and less well understood. Thanks and I look forward to your future tours.
