A very impressive building. The luxury those people (the Medici) had is unbelievable. Gold everywhere and personalised paintings on the ceilings in bed and workrooms. Incredible.
But if you have to choose between uffizi and palazzo vecchio go for the former

Tour of Palazzo Vecchio
Jul 2021
We had bought tickets for the Palazzo Vecchio and by chance the information desk next to the ticket sales mentioned that they had a tour in English leaving straight away. Normally we do not take the tours, but this meant we started the trip around the Palazzo Vecchio immediately. Taking the tour made a huge difference and the tour guide was excellent. I hope it is ok to mention her by name as she was so good and hope that I have her name correct - Giulia. She brought a real life to the visit with good commentary and insights and was easily able to answer all questions. Her enthusiasm was shared and appreciated by the small group she was showing around. I would highly recommend taking a tour with a guide. Many thanks for a great visit!

Organised cultural round

It is a visit divided in 2 parts. You visit the palace and the art there. It is important point of the medieval civilization .

Second part is climbing the tower with a guide in small groups. It is a physical challenge. View from above is breathtaking

Impressive palace
Jun 2021
Very impressive palace for its size and ornamentation. Plan 1.5 hours for a quick walk through another hour to be more thorough. Note that there are not a lot of places to sit down and admire the interior.
