Palazzo Vecchio reviews
The overall visit of the palace was interesting and every room offered great art to stare at, with detailed informations displayed on stands. The maps room is a must see! However, we got a bit... more »
The thing we liked the most here was an exposition of very beautiful statues that had in front of the palace. Not sure if this is always there or if it was seasonal, but you will definitely not lose..... more »
Very interesting. Do the excavation tour, well worth it if you stop and listen to the 10 minute movie. If it looks like rain either don't bother with the tower or do it straight away before the rain as it is closed when wet.
Beautiful. Just that. Each room is decorated in a specific way. The artists that worked on this palace truly gave it a flavour of aristocracy while keeping the warmth of a home. If you're a student in the E.U. you get a small discount. There are lots of different options. You can choose any combination of visits: -to the palace -to the tower -to the underground recently discovered roman theater On a good day, the line for the tickets is not that long (considering other places of interest in Florence) KEEP IN MIND! there is usually a line (around thirty minutes wait) for the tower, AFTER you have purchased your ticket.
