Excellent guided tour

I loved the family history attached to this building, as well as the beautiful paintings. Really gave a feel of the personalities throughout the centuries.

This house museum is a lovely, quiet escape from the usual Florence attractions. There are only a handful of rooms, but they are beautiful - each with impressive frescos and period furniture. My favorite was the "garden" room - a room painted as if you were outside. It was created since the property didn't have a garden of it's own.... More

We had passed the closed door to this Villa many times and one day we saw the door open and enquired if the public could visit. Thursday at 5 p.m. was the appointed time and one of the staff gave us a private tour of the apartments. We were astounded at the beauty which lay behind this closed door and... More

I went with my Italian school and It was truly worth my time. I paid three euros to go on an Italian tour and walked through rooms filled with spectacular art and decoration. The paintings were my favourite, but it was also memorable for other aspects of the rooms - ceilings, wallpaper, railings etcetera. The family dates back to the... More

Casa Martelli is easy to overlook in the wealth of offerings in Florence but it should be on your list if you enjoy interior design as much as art. The palazzo typifies a noble residence of Florence going back to the days of the Medici. It was lived in by a member of the Martelli family until about 20 years... More

It was amazing visiting this museum. The very interesting thing does not only come from the paintings but also from the way they put those paintings together on one wall to another. This is true art.

In April of 2012 I had the opportunity to visit Florence again and I had read in the Florentine English newspaper of the Casa Martelli. One has to arrange for a ticket that costs three euro at the ticket office at Orsanmichele. A a tour guide is needed to visit the Palazzo at a specific time. The guide was an... More

The palace is dimly lit by candelabra as you walk through. Windows are shuttered because light must be kept from the paintings and wall coverings but it is absolutely intriguing as this place was occupied by members of the Martelli family till the last little old lady died in 1986 - she lived just in a few rooms - rarely...

If you are able to, I definitely say check this museum out! They have very limited hours (only open on Thursdays and Saturdays). They say you must call ahead to reserve, but I was able to get in without calling ahead. In fact, I tried to call ahead, and the women on the phone told me that they only had... More

I visited Casa Martelli yesterday and loved it! It's a fascinating insight into noble life at the time of the Medicis and as well as a fabulous collection of art, it was a treat to see how rooms were decorated in the 18th & 19th centuries. The ceiling frescoes were particularly interesting and beautiful. I loved the summer bathing room... More
