Palazzo della Signoria, better known as Palazzo Vecchio, has been the symbol of the civic power of Florence for over seven centuries. Among the works of art safeguarded in the museum: the Cortile di Michelozzo; Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento; Donatello’s Judith in the Sala dei Gigli; the private rooms of the Medici court and among these the marvellous Cappella di Eleonora, the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino.

The Museum is very interesting and the many rooms within offer some incredible sights. If you can visit with a guide to get the most of this extremely historic palace.

We were totally blown away from this visit and glad we did not come across huge crowds as we expected. Various statues lined up in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, including a copy of Michelangelo's David, that replaced the original in 1873, and the group of Hercules and Cacus by Bandinelli. The first entrance courtyard with white and gilded stucco... More

It was a long queue to buy the ticket but none to enter so afford your ticket online (Museum, Tower and archaeological museum are sold separately or combined) The tower was closed because it was raining. It's the main place where Inferno movie was turned on and you can find there the Dante Mask

Unbelievable opulence was the standard of the Medicis and this shows it in spades. The palazzo is a monument to themselves. Paintings are mainly Florentine artists, as should be expected from the rulers of Florence. The gems are the statuary. There is an uncompleted Michelangelo in the great hall that they got from his nephew. It was intended for Pope... More

Visited for a short while as we were on our day tour of Florence. Beautiful frescos on the walls. Statues of marble within its walls. Inner courtyard was really something. Columns were decorated with many intricate designs. Orange trees were situated in the middle of the courtyard. Beautiful decorated ceiling.

The ceiling at this location was fantastic. Truly amazing and well worth the visit. Add to this some interesting statues around the building and it makes for a great visit whilst meandering around this beautiful city. Well worth spending some time here to take in this architecture.

In the last months people visit this Museo because of the movies (Hannibal and Inferno are been settled here, at least some key scenes). The Museo of Palazzo Vecchio means more: the whole history of Florence, since the Middle Ages, when Florence was a Comune, and Dante was among the Priori (the gouvernement of the city, 1300), but also when...

There is a separate review page for the tower alone but it would be absurd to visit the tower alone (the combined ticket is 14 euros). Check the opening times, which while long are somewhat complex (and there is more on offer in the form of tours and art workshops). In the prestigious Piazza della Signoria it is to this... More

We wandered in here by chance and it was well worth it. Some of the rooms were closed due to the set-up for a private event, but we were able to listen to musicians practicing on the second floor and it was amazing.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
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 and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
