The most recognizable building in Florence along with the Duomo and Palazzo Pitti. A copy of the David by Michelangelo and Hercules and Caucus stand at the entrance. The courtyard alone deserves a visit and is quickly accessible from Piazza della Signoria.
We ate dinner at a restaurant in the palazzo. There is a fountain as well as many shoppes and places to eat inside this plaza. The views are amazing and it is a great place to just sit and relax after walking the city.
At Palazzo Vecchio is a trip back into history to three eras. Palazzo Vecchio offers Roman ruins, a Medieval fortress and amazing Renaissance chambers and paintings. A microcosm where art and history have been indissolubly bound for centuries. Great chambers, furniture and art.
Hello, I‘m not sure, I didn’t try guided tours. Theoretically it should be possible since guided tours also include entry fee, but it’s better to ask somebody else. Enjoy the tour, I wish I had it as well!

Hi Tia. I just reviewed the video I took of the climb up and down the stairs. I'm not thrilled with heights by any means but the view from the top makes it well worth it. The steep stairs are made of stone and there are no spaces in between. In fact, for most of the journey up the stairs, you can't even see outside so you're not even aware of the height. The stairways are a little narrow-you can fit one person going up and one going down at the same time but when that does happen, it's a little tight but not too claustrophobic. When you get to the top, you are surrounded by a stone wall on all sides so you're not looking down, you're looking out, which makes it easier if you're afraid of heights. The biggest thing you should be concerned about isn't the height, it's the workout you'll get going up the stairs. Just go slow and take your time and you'll be fine!

Shannon: I'm not sure. When I visited in late August, it was not available for viewing. TripAdvisor won't allow me to post a website, but I found information by entering into a Google search bar: palazzo vecchio dante death mask viewing times. Copy that phrase and enter into a Web search window. You will find many references to viewing times, including eight TripAdvisor reviews. Enjoy Firenze! I certainly did.
