It is a small museum and not that crowded. The interior is grand. 7 euro for that. I would love to see more guild notes.
Beautiful art and architecture, hardly any crowds to maneuver through so you can take your time looking at the beautiful art.
I have always wanted to see these frescoes of the procession of the magi and in real life they are truly stunning covering the walls of this little chapel. This is the original Medici place and it is stunning architecturally with a lovely small garden. Very few tourists and so you really get a feel for the grandeur of the... More
While everyone else is jamming into the Uffizi and lining up for the Academia (albiet, with good reason); head to the Palazzo Medici to see Benozzo Gozzoli's Procession of the Magi. The vibrant frescoes fill the walls of the tiny chapel. Because the chapel is so small, they can be seen up close. They are astounding and meticulously executed. Bonus:... More
Benozzo Gozzoli's 'Procession of the Magi' frescoes in the private chapel of Old Cosimo de' Medici are worth making a detour for. The characters process before the viewer in a blaze of colour.

The Palazzo Medici Ricardi was the original palace of the Medici Family until they moved to the Palazzo Vecchio when Cosimo I took power. The palace is full of art everywhere. There is a beautiful Tapestry Room and the Room of Luca Giordano is full of his beautiful paintings. The chapel has frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli showing the Arrival of... More
The paintings cover all the walls and depict the journey of the Magi. They are absolutely fabulous and I visit the chapel each time I am in Florence. This time there was a new attraction you could go in to a room with a screen and interact with the images which was much more fun than a guide book!

Only part of the building can be visited, since offices are located on the second floor. Also in part of the building on the 1st floor a conference was hosted during our visit and therefore not all the rooms could be visited in the original state. On the ground floor, there are several expositions of artists and most of the... More
Closed on Wednesdays, the Medici Palace was designed as a mathematically pleasing but unobtrusive building just a short walk down the Via di Cavour from the Duomo. Passersby then would not have guessed what lay within and past the gates you are in to an ornate Renaissance courtyard and almost classical Roman garden. Donatello's David was originally the centrepiece (he's... More
