The Palazzo transports you to another time and it is wonderful to see how the elegant folk of Florence would have lived. If you have the Firenze card it's included on it so even if you're not 100% sure if it's your thing it's worth...More

its variety of food, especially those focusing on

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.
