This was one of my favourite visits in Florence. It was very good value and the wall paintings are superb. If you suffer from vertigo, there is a lift which will enable you to see the amazing bedrooms on 3 floors without having to use the scary staircases.

Find out when the guided tour is and pay the extra few euros ... It's the only way to see the upper floor.

This was a delightful break from the crowds at all the "bigger attractions" in Florence. Tickets are very inexpensive (I think they were 2 or 3 euros?) compared to other attractions. You get to walk through 3 floors of this centuries-old structure, which has changed hands several times, but now is run as a house museum, giving a glimpse into... More

A visit to this beautifully restored 14th century Florentine house would be a shame to miss. The sumpteous frescoes, the period furniture (though not all of the same period), the bedrooms with 'en suite' facilities, the courtyard, the stairwell, the drainpipes, the well system ... You can really feel a wealthy Florentine family living here. It is closed in the... More

This was one of our favorite places which we discovered due to trip Advisor. You can see how wealth textile merchants lived. Gorgeous frescoed walls and bathrooms with toilets., two on each floor.. very interesting

We've been to Florence before ... but thanks this time to the Rick Steves tour we were on, we got a chance to see how some folks lived in the 14th c. By 'some folks' I probably mean those with a bit of $$. The house is a great example of a transition from the tower homes to this 'renaissance'... More

This gorgeous 14'th century Palazzo was incredible, we both loved it! It literally felt like you were seeing how the Florentines lived then! The wall paintings, the furniture, the intricate lacework, the ceramics, and how the rooms were displayed was great. The kitchen had some wonderful views as well. Interesting way to spend a couple of hours, and only costs... More

The palace is very worth seeing if you have the time. My spouse and I spent 12 nights in Florence in June 2014. This was our second visit to the city, and we purposefully chose a slightly-extended stay so we could attend places like this that are not as popular with tourists as the main sights. The palace is 4... More

This museum is a delightful view of what it would have been like (if you had a bit of money) to live in Florence back in the Medieval period. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and there are so many rooms to explore. Tours are available, but you can wander around and read some of the papers available throughout to get... More
