I'm glad we visited this palace during our trip to Florence, but this was one of my least favourite stops. I think Florence gives you enough other sights worth seeing so I recommend a visit to Palazzo Strozzi only if you're in Florence for more than a day.

The main reason we visited Palazzo Strozzi was because there was an exhibition of work by Picasso and other Italian modern artists. It's an imposing renaissance building and a great setting in which to see some great and some frankly not-so-great works of art! Check out listings to see what may be on, but, like many places in Florence, the... More

This is the location of the second worst coffee we have been served in Italy. The worst was outside Pompeii and it was bad. But this was also undrinkable. I told them it was bad. No apology, no offer to make it again. Could not recommend coming here.

Dear Enrico, Thanks for your feedback about our café. Our Foundation works for creating high level cultural experience though our exhibitions and we are sorry that our complimentary café disappointed your expectations. At the moment we are in the process of renovating the café that will have a brand new structure for this fall. Hope you can visit Palazzo Strozzi... More

There are different exhibits at the Strozzi every time we're in Florence. Loved the Botticelli exhibit several years ago & the Greek Bronzes this time were equally amazing. Great curatorial staff who put together amazing exhibitions.

A perfect gallery tour of beautiful Greek bronze sculptures. The exhibit is curated from museums from all over the world. The description is interesting and clear. Great selection of art. There was literally nobody when I visited. May one or two per room.

A unique exhibition with contributions from all around the globe. I enjoyed it a lot. Perhaps they are afraid the art will be sucked out of the sculptures, or perhaps they - and the benefactors - hope to sell more books - anyway, taking photos with e.g. an Ipad is stricktly forbidden.

My fiance and I were super excited to visit Palazzo Strozzi, and if you're a fan of the Assassins Creed series you'll understand why. It was great, had a coffee in the cafe and pretended we were visiting the Auditore family for tea....

Some of the best special exhibitions in Italy can be found at the palazzo. This year, amazing bronzes. Last, Rosso Fiorentino and Pontorma. A bit pricey but really well curated and visitor friendly.

The building itself is a master piece of Renaissance architecture. Regarding the exhibitions, you can easily tell that the curators have put so much efforts in putting them together. Don't miss also the lively events that happen from time to time.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
