This palazzo was home to the Medici family at one time (they also lived at Palazzo Vecchio and the Piti Palace). The courtyard is beautiful but the highlight for me is the small but beautifully decorated Magi Chapel. The colors are so rich and the conditions of the murals is pristine. I spent 20 minutes observing the details in these four walls. No photography. The audio tour is recommended. This tour should be combined with the nearby Medici Chapels, which houses some of Michelangelo's finest sculptures. Little known fact: Michelangelo designed the unfinished church but his design was ultimately rejected by the Pope as too expensive so the church was never finished.
