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

The palazzo shows how people lived in the fourteenth century. The architeture is fascinating and the collection contains authentic pieces from the period.

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.

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

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
