Not one or two in Florence but worth seeing. We only had to wait about 10 minutes on a Sunday and were treated to a lot of Medici history as well as Renaissance art.

The Medici palace was designed by Michelozzo di Bartolomeo for Cosimo Medici in the 15th century. Its Renaissance facade with rustic stone walls was an inspiration for many similar palaces in Tuscany. Its interior reflects the status, power and the wealth of the family... it...More

The Palazzo transports you to another time and it is wonderful to see how the elegant folk of Florence would have lived. If you have the Firenze card it's included on it so even if you're not 100% sure if it's your thing it's worth...More

There was no line. It was 12 euro. This museum is small and not part of the usual tourist attractions and perfect on a hot Florence afternoon. Hope this was helpful.
