You can have an immagination, how the "better families" lived in the city. The whole palace is full with furnitures, art pieces. You can walk on your own on all the floors, and if you are lucky, than there are enough staff and everything is...More

This visit was most enjoyable. You can wander all four floors at your own pace viewing beautifully decorated rooms with outstanding genuine furnishings requiring close examination. I found the entire building to be rich for photography of architecture, furnishings, and period detail. We were fortunate...More

Beautifully restore palace. Gorgeous art, furniture, ceramics and more. Truly gives you a feel of the Florentine aristocratic lifestyle. You can even see the kitchen if you book in advance. We were disappointed to miss that.

We ran into this home while walking in Florence and it was one of our favorite stops. Daily life illustrated, amazing place. We were there about an hour - missed the kitchen tour, sadly. Inexpensive, not crowded, very interesting look at life for the prosperous...More

Set on four floors of a 14th century trading house with fascinating artefacts set in some wonderfully decorated rooms. A much less crowded and relaxed experience after the Uffizzi

What a hidden gem this is! A quiet retreat from the crowds at the Duomo and Uffizi. A late medieval tower house museum, home of a wealthy, but not Medici level family. Don't expect Williamsburg like recreation here - the furnishings are sparse, but the...More

I really enjoyed this Palazzo. I’m not a fan of Florence but I do like historical buildings and this one was well worth seeing. The furniture isn’t original to the building but it hardly matters. The indoor well is interesting as is the old graffiti...More

This is an interesting very old house (most things in Florence are very old). It provides a good example how families in the olden days lived. Don't miss the bedroom of the landlady Frescoes in which the legend of Chatelaine of Viergy is depicted on...More

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

The museum does public tours of all floors at 10, 11,and 12 on “normal open days”. Those days are specified on their website (which I cannot link to here). I would recommend getting there early by 15 minutes or so to secure... More
