It was amazing visiting this museum. The very interesting thing does not only come from the paintings but also from the way they put those paintings together on one wall to another. This is true art.

The palace is dimly lit by candelabra as you walk through. Windows are shuttered because light must be kept from the paintings and wall coverings but it is absolutely intriguing as this place was occupied by members of the Martelli family till the last little old lady died in 1986 - she lived just in a few rooms - rarely...

They say you must call ahead to reserve, but I was able to get in without calling ahead. In fact, I tried to call ahead, and the women on the phone told me that they only had... More

It's a fascinating insight into noble life at the time of the Medicis and as well as a fabulous collection of art, it was a treat to see how rooms were decorated in the 18th & 19th centuries. The ceiling frescoes were particularly interesting and beautiful. I loved the summer bathing room... More

Off the beaten track, a real hidden gem in Florence a few steps from the Duomo and close to San Lorenzo street market. Charming decor, intriguing ambience, great art collections. A well-preserved noble "palazzo", where the Martellis haved lived till 1980's. Enjoybale and informative guided tours led by a group of enthusiastic local experts. Art and history brought back to...
