A real gem and probably not at the top of everyone's list of thing to do but still worth a visit. Not expensive, some of the modern art was just best avoided but the original features and the chapel - just superb. This is still a working building but you can go into many of the residential areas and see... More

Fantastic place! Don't miss the most beautiful chapel of Florence: capella di Gozzoli with its Procession of the Magi. The full wall frescoes illustrating the trip of 3 Kings to Bethlehem to see the newborn Christ is breathtaking. It is dated back to the 15th century and among the characters depicted in frescoes are Medici themselves. It is so colourful... More

Fantastic place, what more can one tell. Just go and enjoy this place, as we did. Palace has space for different expositions, but itself it is good example of Italian history, architecture and so on...

I walked through the Palazzo Medici Riccardi with a mild sense of deja vu, given that it is a slightly smaller version of many other (more magnificent) Medici related buildings in the city. So it was with a feeling of slight boredom that I walked through the gardens and the rooms on the ground level- this building is currently a... More

We visited here in October 2013. The Palazzo was OK but not very exciting. The best part was the Capella di Benozzo. This was a really beutiful tiny private chapel in the Palazzo and made the visit worthwhile. This attraction was covered by the Firenze Card (Florence card) which I recommend you purchase as it will give you access to... More

I'm not an art historian, so I'll let you read some of the other reviewers who will tell you in great detail about the paintings in the chapel. From the perspective of a naive viewer, it is great! It's a tiny little chapel (remember, this was built for one family), but it is gorgeous. Well worth the time and the... More

What an incredible experience! This house museum is absolutely stunning! Each room was breathtaking. It's a manageable size but quite impressive. A nice changed from the Florence crowds. Audio headsets are available in the gift shop for about 4 euro and well worth the price. It's not clear when you enter that these are available - once we were inside,... More

This may not be the top attraction in Florence, but it was among my favorites. I loved seeing how these people actually lived. The rooms were manageable, not art museums. The trees in the garden were bearing fruit! There was no tour I saw, don't recall seeing staff in every room like at Uffizi or Pitti Palace, so you can... More

My wife and I wanted to visit the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi which we hadn’t yet seen in our several trips to Florence, and we were not at all disappointed. The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi is considerably smaller than the Pitti Palace, but its few exhibits are no less stunning and it’s only a couple of blocks from the Santa Maria del Fiore. As... More
