  • Very nice place to visit, but the admission ticket is just too expensive – especially when compared to the price of other attractions in Florence.

  • Palazzo Vecchio is located in my favorite square in Florence - Piazza della Signoria where the Neptune fountain is. It’s easily recognizable by the Arnolfo tower and the copy of Michelangelo’s David.....  more

  • We did the secret passage with the kids. They loved it. It was almost one hour long with a guide. You have to leave your backpack in a locker near the ticket office, and you are not allowed to use camera flash. When you finish the secret passage tour, you stay inside and you also look at the normal exhibition. (And Dante's mask).
  • Beautiful and surprising! Many of the painting need restoration, but they are so beautiful. Each room tells a story and I love that many of the rooms are dedicated to women warriors. Went with a stroller for my child, they have an elevator available, needed to go up some steps but it was manageable. Staff was helpful and friendly.
