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.

Kind of silly to review the palazzo but hey...it's a key part of any Florence visit and especially charming at night when the arts come to life and crowds less busy.

A couple of excellent sculptures in the fake David statue of course. A nice spot to do some people watching, but a bit of a downer with all the construction in mobs of tourists.

If you want to marvel at painted ceilings, this is the place for you - starting in the hall of the 500 with its homage to the Medici dynasty and the wars against Pisa and Siena - the ceiling art continues through every room. There...More

This palazzo has a very interesting history dating back to the 1300s. The building includes the enormous Hall of 500 and Dante's death mask (extra fun and interesting if you've seen the movie Inferno). There are also several significant pieces of art, as well as...More

We loved the Palazzo Veccioa and we were told that if you want to see Florence from above you should visit the Tower in Palazzo Veccio, rather than going to the Dome. If you have a budget or are short of time, or just want...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.
