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

This is one of the elegant palaces in Florence with all the "necessary" paintings, decorations, statues. YOu can immagine how the Medici's lived here.

Was told that there were public offices in the building and that it was closed. Couldn’t really understand but was essentially turned away. Wandered through the courtyard and looked at some statuary and out the far side. It was a site listed on our Firenze...More

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.

This is well worth seeing. Michelangelo lived with the Medici family here in his teens. The artwork and architecture is excellent. The baroque hall is overwhelming to see.

Don't miss this. From the outside or the colonnaded courtyard (free to enter), you would not know the treasures above on the first floor (entrance ticket €10, including temporary exhibition). The gem is the Chapel of the Magi, with frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli, which are...More

Not as ornate or restored as the other Medici palaces, this is still historic and interesting in its own right. The beautiful, ornate ceiling in what is now a conference room was indeed overshadowed by the chairs set up which kind of spoiled the ambiance,...More

Easy to get into, easy to tour. It's important to have these opportunities in Italy. This was not as opulent and jaw dropping as I expected, probably a bit sparser than it was in the day. The most magnificent ceiling is in a room that...More

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.
