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

Palazzo Davanzati was an unexpected delight. After grand palaces, it was refreshing to see a more intimate vision of an aristocratic family’s life. The structure is lovely but not overwhelming and offers glimpses into a Renaissance lifestyle beyond the cavernous palaces. My whole family found...More

Remarkable example of a late medieval dwelling. The tours, which should be arranged in advance take you to the living quarters for a wealthy pre-renaissance family. Very much worth doing.

I went with a guide Virginia Lacy who explained everything so well. An amazing well kept piece of history.

What an amazing place! We were lucky enough to see all the floors including the kitchen at the top of the house. It is a hidden gem. The opening times are short and early- we were allowed in the top floor at 10am- but well...More

One of the reasons I wanted to visit was that my recently dead mother had rated it as one of her fondest memories of Florence; I wish I could say the same! First, the opening hours... 8.15 to 13.50 - one of the cushier jobs...More

We had a great morning wandering through this museum getting a feel for how the wealthy Florentines lived. Such opulence is seen in this palace still. Original wall coverings, ceilings and many, many artefacts show what wealth these people really had. This multi-storey building will...More

We stopped outside this palazzo on a walking tour of Florence and learned that it was decorated and furnished in period fashion. Entering was not part of our tour, but when we found ourselves back in the area with about 45 minutes of free time...More

don't miss this gem in central Florence. The wall paintings are exquisite, and the collections are phenomenal. This was probably my favorite site in Florence. Make sure you see the bedrooms – they can easily be missed, thinking that it is just a service corridor.

In a city full of amazing museums, do not miss this one! What a glimpse into Renaissance life... Absolutely fascinating from the moment you walk in the door.. up all the floors.. I believe it is free admission with a Firenze Card, too. If you...More

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
