There is lots to see in Florence, but I highly recommend visiting the Palazzo Strozzi during a visit to this Renaissance city, as it features many noteworthy Art exhibits, both contemporary and historic in nature. I was recently in Florence and saw the Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino exhibit and thought it was beautifully planned and executed. I have seen other... More

Palazzo Strozzi is a wonderful exhibition space at the heart of historic Florence. I visited the exhibtion on Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino, two Florentine painters of the 16th century that deserve wider recognition. Pontormo worked for the Medici Court in Florence, Rosso ended up in the court of France. The show concentrates on their work in Italy and exhibits works... More

The construction of this status symbol of Strozzi Family started in 1498 and remained the seat of the family until 1937 with a 30 years pause when it was confiscated by Duke Cosimo I de Medici. It is a very symmetrical and harmonious building. It is hosting a unique exhibition of the masterpieces of Pontorno and Rosso Fiorentino and another... More

This Palazzo is one of the most important in Florentine history and well-preserved to boot. The Palazzo is quintessential Florentine Renaissance architecture. The interior sculptures, and cafe, are well worth a visit.

Palazzo Strossi is not only beautiful and worth visiting for its own - even just for a brief stop at the cafe - but you can be sure that any exhibition there is a must: so intelligently curated; always with a fascinating story to tell - and really meaningful engagement with its viewers. The current Pontormo and Rossi exhibition is... More

The palace is the most interesting example of Renaissance architecture I have ever seen. Perfectky preserved in the heart of the city, in the most elegant district. We were no lucky because three was no exhibitions inside, so we couldn't enjoy a visit in the rooms. But we spent some time at the café and was ok.

The beautiful palazzo is by itself worth visiting. It is a great place to grab a cafè and relax while soaking up quintessential Renaissance architecture. The exhibitions on the main floor are usually fantastic, and I can't wait to see the current Pontormo and Fiorentino exhibition. The Strozzi works hard to engage visitors, and it makes for an enjoyable opportunity... More

I spent 9 days in Florence so had the time to do this, so not as easy to do if you're only there for a few days, but I loved the inside courtyard, a really lovely little quiet zone. I'm a writer so sat with my laptop and just relaxed and wrote for a while.
