Owner description: Palazzo della Signoria, better known as Palazzo Vecchio, has been the symbol of the civic power of Florence for over seven centuries. Among the works of art safeguarded in the museum: the Cortile di Michelozzo; Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento; Donatello’s Judith in the Sala dei Gigli; the private rooms of the Medici court and among these the marvellous Cappella di Eleonora, the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino.

Frommer’s recommended this museum for high quality children’s tours of Florence, and it even exceeded expectations. We took the excellent Medici Family tour in English on July 4, with other adults and kids about ages 10 and up. The engaging guide taught us about the family (men and women) and its history ruling Florence and showed us the fresco covered palace, including secret passageways, a private balcony, and a map room with maps of the known world of which North America was barely part. I would highly recommend this museum to any adult and even more highly to anyone with kids. They do tours for younger children as well, in English and other languages.

The palace is quite impressive and offers some beautifully decorated rooms. That said, it's exactly what you'd expect from a palace that was owned by the famous Medici family that ruled Florance for decades. It's interesting to visit this place when you have the time for it and are interested in history, otherwise I would recommend to do something else instead.

We only took the tour up the tower (10 euros pp) as we didn't have time to visit the Medici family's house, but the few rooms we could see on the way to the tour were very richly decorated and make me think it is really worth a visit. The view from the tower is really amazing as you can see the Duomo and all the city from just above the roofs and there is practically nobody. We did have to wait about 30 minutes in the palace before accessing it but no biggy.
