See the little chapel that houses the gorgeous fresco Adoration of the Magi, just a few steps from the Duomo. Don't miss the Marble Museum, in the back of the garden, with many ancient marble sculptures and articles discovered during the excavation works for the many reformations of the building.

4 previous visits to Florence (though they were brief) is no excuse for missing this amazing fresco, Gozzolo's Procession of the Magi. Armed with some detail from my book, The Stones of Florence, the imagery became alive for me. I consider this a MUST SEE and you will not be disappointed.

Unfortunately the Palazzo Medici RIccardi is very much a product of Riccardi family and not the Medici with two exceptions--the courtyard and the chapel, which are original. During the high season in Florence the chapel is restricted to a 10-minute time limit, but off season in December when I went I had all the time I needed to really study... More

The exterior looks like a fortress. But the interiors are stunning. Beautiful chandeliers and ceilinf frescos. Definately worth a visit. But the small fee is cash only, no credit cards accepted.

We did not spend very long in this palace, but we were glad that we did. We were amazed how quite it was. On display is Benozzo Gozzoli's Procession of the Magi which was stunning and is definitely worth a visit.

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
