“So interesting”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Wow this was amazing value at only 2 euros for entry. A beautifully restored 14th century house, which is large and so interesting. Go at the times that they allow you to go up to the higher floors (you need the guide to accompany you) We went on the 12 oclock tour but there are other times that they do them.

“One not to be missed”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

It is so difficult in Florence to fit everything in isn't it? How do you prioritise?
As you have strolled through all those places and museums have you been wondering what these buildings must have looked like in the 16th and 17th century? How often have you heard that the walls would have been decorated, patterned and coloured and wondered how? What would that have looked like?
Wonder no more and visit this extraordinary palace, the best value in town at €2. It is beautifully and sympathetically restored and it will take your breath away.
Watch the opening times. We visited on the Saturday morning and managed to talk our way onto the tour of the upper two floors.

“Plan to see this in the morning!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

This museum was on my itinerary in Florence, but when I got there, I found out that it closes at 1:50pm (too early!) and has many days when it is closed. I never got to see it, so lesson learned. Plan to see this museum in the morning.

“Do not miss this!”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

It's sometimes hard to get a feel of what the great palaces of the renaissance were like when occupied. This museum of domestic interiors lets you find out. It's a mix of restored rooms and museum pieces in a wonderful old Palazzo. If you can only go inside one museum in Firenze, go here - you'll learn more than in the Ufizzi. Beware though, the opening times are erratic in the extreme - check them out as soon as you arrive to make sure you don't miss it

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

This museum wasn't given much time in our guide book but I would advise all visitors to Florence to take the time to go. The palazzo is like walking into a renaissance home and helps you to imagine what it would have been like to live in Florence all those years ago. The ground floor and first floor can be looked around at anytime and the floors above can be viewed at 10, 11 or 12 if you leave your name with the staff. There are information cards in English in each room to help you understand what you are looking at. The cost is very low (2 euros for adults, 1 euro for children) and the insight it provides is invaluable. Check opening times before you go, I think it closed at about 1.30pm and I don't think it was open on a Monday.
