Another gallery of which Florence abounds. Some good displays and while I was there was an exhibition of glassware which was beautiful. A grand building more like a prison but yet another Florence gallery / museum. There is so much artwork here. Find it and visit it. Use a FIRENZE CARD to avoid the queues. Its great to queue jump

An incredible building with a stunning interior courtyard, the Strozzi Palace today holds revolving exhibitions. We were fortunate enough to visit in the spring of 2017, when the Strozzi was having a large exhibit of Bill Viola video installations from the 1970's to the present. It was an amazing show that juxtaposed brilliantly produced contemporary video narratives based on Renaissance... More

We went hoping to see another amazing Palazzo. Instead, we walked through some exhibition of performance art. (Bill Viola) All I can say is that I'm glad we didn't really have to pay as we were using our Firenze Cards. (got our money's worth elsewhere)

Very strict palace, fortress looking like! Its completely grey, actually, nothing special. The upper floors are occupied by offices. Sometimes avant-garde exhibitions are hold inside, which look very unusual in the medieval palace. There are a lot of little orange trees in the courtyard which make the smell around just amazing when blossom.

One of the best art venues I know, large rooms, lovely and quiet. I viewed the Ai Wei Wei here and it had ample space. Also photography was permitted. Only about 12 euros to enter, really worth it. Sit in the palazzo for coffee after, peaceful but with a view of the surrounding streets.

It is a nice spot for contemporary art; international exhibitions and cultural events take place within the setting of this architectural masterpiece of the Florence Renaissance. We did not spend much time to see the exhibition. We were not that thrilled. It was average I can say, but when we finished the visit, we hanged in the courtyard for quite... More

Our guide gave us a wonderful timeline and history of the Strozzi family competing with the Medici family to show off their wealth and power. This is worth looking at to compare, but it does not of course hold a candle to the grandeur of the Pitti Palace. I highly recommend visiting here and the Pitti Palace. A well educated... More

Nice place if you're interested in contemporary art. Enjoyable exhibition Ai Weiwei "Libero" and not too many tourists!

Last time I saw the Weiwei exhibition, which is something to remember. Besides exhibitions the Palace in itself is worthwhile going for. On Thursdays it is open til 22:00 and the entrance is free.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
