Not visitable

The palazzo was in my list of Florentine Renaissance palazzi but to my regret it is not possible to visit. Maybe there is a back entrance hidden?

There are dozens of palazzo throughout Florence. Rucellai is a beautiful example of the three-tier Florentine style (different types of masonry / stone on each level). Well worth a glance / examination when you are in Florence. The Rucellai, like the Medici, were bankers and the building shows the wealth. Even though there is no way to really imagine the... More

From Sept 03-May 04 I studied abroad in Florence and attended the Institute of Fine and Liberal Arts at the Palazzo Rucellai on Via della Vigna Nuova. As far as a tourist attraction I'm not sure there's much to see. The school occupies much of the building, except the top few floors which are, according to a Google search, apartments... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
