Owner description: 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.

“Great View from the top!”

There is an spectacular 360 view from the top of the Palazzo Vecchio. Make sure you go there, even having some many stairs on your way to the top.

A beautiful old building with fantastic pieces from history, the walls are unique and the area which it stands is an amazing introduction to the Museum.

Lots of interesting things within; it reminded me of the Doge's Palace in Venice. What a life these people must have lived!

“Really interesting building - big part of Florentine history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Really enjoyed exploring the Palazzo Vecchio. Some of the most richly decorated rooms I found hard to like but I could appreciate the amazing art and decoration of the rooms. The detail of the ceiling painting was incredible. Also, there's a room in the entrance hallway with a short history of Florence, which was really interesting. The Parliamentary room (Room of the 500) is amazing and includes an unfinished sculpture by Michaelangelo. In summer, the Palazzo Vecchio is open until midnight - we visited during the day and used the same ticket to visit again in the evening. Lovely to see the different in light and how much quieter it was in the evening. The café is reasonably priced and staff very friendly. We visited while a temporary Pollock exhibition was on, which was very interesting - partly in Macchiavelli's former study . . .
