Do not plan to schedule anything else around a visit to the Palazzo Vecchio - just take your time and absorb as much as you can. Absolutely stunning. Will definitely go again on our next visit.

I’ll be the first to admit- I’m not a fan of Florence. Renaissance art/sculpture are just not my thing. However, this place was amazing and my favourite part of our recent holiday. We’d booked the Secret Passageways tour and it was fantastic! An excellent guide...More

Spent a few hours in this extraordinary building and was even able to get a look at the kitchen. Walk to the top of the tower was rewarded with the most amazing view

in a single building we got to experience the grandeur of the original Republic, the beginning of the reign of Cosimo I and the latter day governance of the province. The map room alone is worth a visit but don't miss the sink and toilet...More

I didn’t do a tour for this palace but just wandered through on my own. There are information cards in each room in a variety of languages so you can still learn a lot walking through on your own. I love palaces and old homes...More

As mentioned in Dan Brown’s Inferno. It is a great tour of parts of the palazzo you would never otherwise see. Francesco was obviously an art lover and gave a lot of history of the art in the hidden rooms. Loved it.

Ask for the amazing guided tour that reproduces and show you the places where Robert Langdon stayed inside in the Palazzo. Secret doors and stairs, rooftop visit, really nice ;-)

Well worth the 416 steps to the top of the tower with its splendid view over the city. A few vantage points along the way, and the prison where friar Savonarola was held. Don't miss the Medici hall of maps , an outstanding display of...More
