Beautiful palazzo, impressive inside porch with armor coats and peaces of art. Feeling of time stopped here... The pearl of the place - Magi Chapel with Bennozzo Gozzoli fresco. Charming, breathtaking painting, unforgettable!

The interior of the palazzo is somewhat plain, and not the most interesting part of your visit. One of the first things you will see upon entering the palace is the chapel of the Magi. This is a small room, but do not ignore it:...More

A very important Palazzo for anyone interested in the Medici family or Florentine history. Currently in use as the seat of the Metropolitan City of Florence. A relatively plain exterior belies the engaging interior. Sites include important renaisance art, roman pieces and modern exhibitions. Not...More

Yet another church, but they're all very different, this one with a museum thrown in for good measure. Worth a visit.

After seeing Medici: Masters of Florence we were excited to be at the main building of the story. We entered the Medici museum at €10 a piece and thought we would see a lot of artifacts from the Medici and commissioned art work as well....More

The building is impressive inside and out, and the frescoes are impressive. Unfortunately the overall impression was tempered by the general feeling that the interiors were unloved and uncared for. It must be weeks since the cleaners were last there. The temporary exhibitions were both...More

A stunning Medici palace that we almost missed when planning the trip and focusing on the "top" sights. The Chapel of the Magi is very impressive, and the whole palace is very well preserved.

ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor
market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a

There is an elevator, on the right of the main courtyard where the exit stairs are. There was a guard there to assist patrons, as well.

There was no line. It was 12 euro. This museum is small and not part of the usual tourist attractions and perfect on a hot Florence afternoon. Hope this was helpful.
