It worth a visiting, really. The palace is so spectacular that we even can hardly move our eyes. Medici family was very important to Italy history esp. Tuscana area, if could prepare some background then going for visit, it could be better.

It still is... More

Some lovely ceilings and frescoes, some very good paintings, statues, tapestry, furniture. Spacious, no crowds. Nice to see if you are in the area- we were only there about twenty minutes.

The most important in this palazzo is Capella dei Magi famous for the series of wall paintings by Benozzo Gozzoli. Among the followers of the Magi there are numerous Medici family portraits. You will love lively colors and details of the frescoes
