Interesting view into the "middle class"
Oct 2018 • Couples
A free/donation based attraction. Belongs to the church which is attached by secret passage way for family members only. Some excellent are on display and many incites into how the rich merchants of Florence lived. As friends of the Medici the family did very well! We ended up with 3 guide speaking a little English each but very knowledgeable.
worth a visit and easy to get to.

Hidden history of a family
Sep 2018 • Couples
We spotted this place in a book about secret Florence, so we gave it a try. It is not open all the time, and entrance is only by a guided group, but it is free!

You get to see the history of the Martelli family and their several houses, which were converted into this palace. There is much to see, including some very impressive ceilings. Don't miss the 'garden rooms' which are painted to resemble an outdoor scene. It is all a bit faded, but fascinating

We literally were strolling around and found this by accident! A free tour of the wealthy Martelli family home. The rooms, the art, everything gorgeous! What a treat! Tour lasts about 1 hr. Love getting to walk in the shoes of history...

Casa Martelli is a great find
Jun 2018 • Couples
Within a very short walk of Il Duomo is Casa Martelli. Gives you a glimpse how the rich Martelli family lived. Free admission and friendly, semi-personalized guided tour! Make a donation if possible. Carefully check days/hours of operation.

Best House Museum in Florence
Sep 2017 • Couples
We lucked out when me saw this little museum near our hotel. It is free and only open several days a week. It is well worth the trip but it is only available in group tours. You will need to stop by and figure out when the next touring in your language is. The people at the desk were a tad unorganized but be patient and try to go here when you are in Florence.

A Hidden Gem
Jun 2017 • Solo
After passing by the museum a number of times on the path to my hotel I saw the 'free admission' sign and thought 'what could I lose?' What a surprise! Staff offered very informactive guided tours, and visitors learn not just the family history but much about ongoing preservation efforts. I would gladly have donated a few euro to the cause, and I wish them continued success! Add this museum to your itinerary and you won't be disappointed.

It's Free and It's Fabulous

This house does not compare to the palaces and churches of Florence, but it doesn't try to. It's the house of a rich Renaissance family, the Martellis, and it has a lot of original art and furnishings. The tour guides are from a local high school who give tours for class credit. We had a great one! The house is open only sporadically (probably due to the availability of the high school tour guides), so you have to time it right to get in. We couldn't have been happier with our tour.

Lovely museum
Feb 2017 • Couples
Randomly visited here. It's the former home of the Martelli family who had connections with the Pucci and Medici families. It has only been open a few years after restoration. When we visited there were no tickets but you could make a donation. It's guided tours only through the many painted rooms but we were lucky to find one of the volunteer guides spoke brilliant English and was very friendly. He kindly gave us our own tour. There is a theme to each room and each room is very suggestive of the past splendour of the house. The guide explained really well how the Martellis used the house and I got a real sense of how rich Florentines used to live. Sadly some of the furniture got sold off many years previously but you can still see some original chairs and curtains and family knick knacks and lots of amazing original art. The feel and smell of the place is amazing. I would recommend this as it gave us a good sense of what life was like in Florence in the past.
