Impressive and magnificent palace. The great ballroom at the beginning is just astonishing, the detail in every room is a proof of the Medici family power.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Picasso exhibit which runs for another week or so. The art and the English signage were great. Enjoyed seeing the school groups making sketches of the artwork. Very well done.

We took a family of guests - all ages and had a wonderful time. The most famous paintings together with descriptions for Picasso lovers are all on hand. Very reasonably priced at 20 euro for a family of four and you get a discount if you take the train. The children designed their own drawings and emailed them via the... More

A real gem in the nicest part of the historical centre of Firenze. We stayed in a hotel just next to it & had the opportunity to study its façade & court-yard during 5 days.

It is always worth checking out the temporary exhibitions at this lovely Palazzo . At the moment they have Picasso and Spanish artists. It has a good collection of Picasso's and a couple of Miros that are worth seeing . Especially interesting are the preparatory drawings for Guernica . Makes a change from all the florentine renaissance for an hour... More

This exhibition places Picasso's works in context against his Spanish contemporaries. On display are several preparatory works for Guernica and Weeping Woman. A brilliant location, big, quiet rooms. Worth a visit on a Thursday when its open till 11.00 pm.

I see from other reviews here that depending upon the exhibition, this visit could be disappointing or excellent, and anything in between. Truth in advertising we were here 2 years ago in April and I am just getting around to review this trip. Our visit was lovely--the exhibit "Americani a Firenze--Sargent e gli impressionisti del Nuovo Mondo" was extraordinary. When... More

Apart from a room dedicated to sketches of Guernica, most of the exhibition is NOT about Picasso, but about other Spanish artists. Moreover the artwork by Picasso shown in this exhibition is pretty poor in light of his production. Apart from the 3 Miro, just about the most boring exhibition I have seen in many years. The only positive point... More
