Palazzo della Signoria, better known as Palazzo Vecchio, has been the symbol of the civic power of Florence for over seven centuries. Among the works of art safeguarded in the museum: the Cortile di Michelozzo; Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento; Donatello’s Judith in the Sala dei Gigli; the private rooms of the Medici court and among these the marvellous Cappella di Eleonora, the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino.

The cost is reasonable, they even have a student discount. The art work on the ceiling, statutes, and the timeless furniture is breathtaking. There is an extra cost to go into the bell tower. There is also a cafe that is low priced, the espresso,...More

The art work was great. We took the secret passages tour, which was incredibly interesting and took you to parts of the palace normally unassailable to tourists.

Excellent location for viewing Florence. The 420 steps to the top of the bell tower can easily be made. Go early in the morning and climb the bell tower to avoid large groups who attend the location later in the day.

This wasn't our first choice of museums to visit in Florence, but lines were long at the other museums and entering this one was possible. What a surprise. The rooms, the ceilings, the artwork are all amazing. The scope and scale of the palace is...More

This is absolutely worth the visit. For 10 euros you can enter and do a self guided tour. It costs extra to go to the tower. While we spent a decent amount of time here after an hour or two many of the rooms, paintings...More

This is the Medici "city hall" and is a fair representation of the city's other treasures, thus if the crowds elsewhere intimidate you, or you do not have the energy or time to do justice to the grandeur of the Uffizi or the Accademia, visit...More

We did this on the same day we did the tower - a rainy day activity. Also, they don't allow you to take backpacks in - so if your camera is inside, take it out before handing over your backpack. You get a ticket for...More

I felt attracted to the intricate detail of the architecture and the elaborate paintings that seem quite alive and I felt the characters would move. The use of vivid colours and careful detailing makes each piece of art a great sight to watch.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
