Although this is in the centre of the city, it is missed by many. It is well worth the time to go inside. It is a perfect example of a wealthy merchant family house. Not as opulent as the palaces nearby, but impressive non the less. The entry fee gives access to the first two floors. The upper floors, which... More

This museum provides an interesting view of how rich people lived during the renaissance. This was an actual home for hundreds of years and it is definitely worth seeing.

As soon as you step into this museum you are at once transported back to Italian medieval history. It was one of my favourite places to see whilst in Florence; the window views across terracotta roofs of neighbouring buildings were beguiling ...

I am a history buff and I love places that show how people use to live hundreds of years ago and this is it for Northern Italy. I send everyone here and all come away amazed. Built in the mid 1300's and surviving bombs in WWII this shows you how a wealthy family lived and what they accumulated over the... More

We go reservations for a specific time to allow us to visit all the floors of this old palazzo. We were in a group with a guide doing Italian and French but not English. You do not need a guide really. This building that is older than most allows you to get a glimpse of life in the 12-1300s. You... More

Visit the Museo Della Casa Fiorentina Antica housed in the Palazzo. This is a great example of the splendor in which the very rich lived. The structure has had multiple changes and restorations, but remains much the way it would have originally been and dates back to the 14th century.

Whilst walking around the centre of Florence we came across this beautifully restored renaissance palace, worth a visit. There are a number of beautiful rooms with antique furnishings, all with clear descriptions (also in English), and not at all busy. It is a shame that it is let down by the lack of information supplied when buying a ticket: the... More

Yes, it's a big house and worth visiting. Rebuild from ruin now is beautiful. Open only until 13:50 if you go there without reservation you can see only ground and first floor. Maybe not enough for such a big building. The upper floors are with the local guide at certain hours. Anyway it's good to see everyday life of the... More

One of the few remaining home that are still in their original condition Although there is little period furniture (900 years) the home has been well maintained and is very unique in its construction. There are secrets everywhere. It was a home with a palazzo entrance but well protected. With very large rooms it's construction was similar to that of... More

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.
