Casa Martelli is easy to overlook in the wealth of offerings in Florence but it should be on your list if you enjoy interior design as much as art. The palazzo typifies a noble residence of Florence going back to the days of the Medici....More

We literally were strolling around and found this by accident! A free tour of the wealthy Martelli family home. The rooms, the art, everything gorgeous! What a treat! Tour lasts about 1 hr. Love getting to walk in the shoes of history...

Within a very short walk of Il Duomo is Casa Martelli. Gives you a glimpse how the rich Martelli family lived. Free admission and friendly, semi-personalized guided tour! Make a donation if possible. Carefully check days/hours of operation.

This house does not compare to the palaces and churches of Florence, but it doesn't try to. It's the house of a rich Renaissance family, the Martellis, and it has a lot of original art and furnishings. The tour guides are from a local high...More
