Both inside and out, this impressive palace museum is an amazing structure of world history, culture, and art. The more one learns about it, the more one appreciates its magnificence.

Organised cultural round
Jun 2021 • Solo
It is a visit divided in 2 parts. You visit the palace and the art there. It is important point of the medieval civilization .

Second part is climbing the tower with a guide in small groups. It is a physical challenge. View from above is breathtaking

Impressive palace
Jun 2021
Very impressive palace for its size and ornamentation. Plan 1.5 hours for a quick walk through another hour to be more thorough. Note that there are not a lot of places to sit down and admire the interior.

An interesting visit
Oct 2020 • Friends
The overall visit of the palace was interesting and every room offered great art to stare at, with detailed informations displayed on stands. The maps room is a must see!
However, we got a bit disappointed by the fact you had to pay more if you wanted to also visit the tower. The basic entrance ticket is already exceeding 20€ even for someone with a discount, and the way to the tower is open... until a staff members closes it in front of you and announces you must pay. That was a bit disappointing.

Come here if you appreciate history
Sep 2020 • Couples
The thing we liked the most here was an exposition of very beautiful statues that had in front of the palace. Not sure if this is always there or if it was seasonal, but you will definitely not lose anything and have a nice view of more history that Florence can offer you.

I booked ticket in advance and though everything was nice, the main purpose was to see the royal apartments which were closed and no mention on the websire

A must see
Aug 2020
A must see in Florence. With COVID-19 we had to reserve a timed slot but this meant we had parts of the palace to ourselves and could enjoy the decoration without crowds. At present you cannot go up the tower but that was not important to us - we wanted to enjoy the fine rooms and see Dante’s death mask. Absolutely worth a visit whether the tower is open or closed
