While visiting Florence for the second time, we took a long walk through the inner city area. When we arrived at the Piazza della Signoria, we took some time-out to admire the impressive town hall which is also known as the Palazzo Vecchio. The most...More

The climb up the tower was worth the view. Florence is spectacular architecturally in the old city. Just gorgeous. The museum has some interesting pieces as well as its history.

The place looks like time stands still here. It is very big and a little bit crowded. It's worth a visit. You can go to the main shopping streets from here. It's really worth a visit but a little bit annoying with all the people...More

There's a show/tour for small children that we came across by chance and doesn't seem to be advertised - ask at the info point in the Palazzo or email them - it only cost a few Euros - not expensive at all. It was excellent...More

This was a lovely museum. We bought the tickets to do the museum and the top of the tower. You have to wait in line, which is to be expected in Florence, to head up the tower since the number of guests are limited. It...More

We spent a couple of hours wandering through the Palazzo Vecchio and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The artwork on the ceilings is beautiful and interesting to learn about. Take your time and read the information provided because there are wonderful stories throughout.

The Palazzo Vecchio is a fairly simple sight, the room of the 500 is cool and the chambers are interesting. However, the highlight is climbing to the top of the tower, which offers some of the best views in Florence. I prefer this view to...More

One of my favorite places in Florence. Not as crowded as the Duomo or Uffizi. The building is beautiful with incredibly painted ceilings in every room. Climb the bell tower for an excellent city view.

We really enjoyed this palace, it has many rooms, and all of them has a story, mythical reference, especially the ceiling had a special story. You have many things to visit, including the tower(not so many steps, like 200 and smth) which leaves you amazed...More

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio

It is a normal street over a bridge, but it is very crowded. Maneuvering will take time and will get you a bit cranky. I haven't seen accommodations for persons with reduced mobility.
