This is an amazing place. The history of this building though the ages and the amazing art work is a must see. A nice touch during the season is the piano.

I have to admit that one of the main reasons I visited was because I recently saw the movie "Inferno" and wanted to "cerca trova" in real live. And I didn't regret it one second. To be honest I was more impressed, than I would have imagined. Standing in the great hall is nearly overwhelming and seeing the former living quarters and the office was just breathtaking. There even was some kind of living art installation celebrating Dante, which took me by surprise, when I entered one room. One of the highlights for me was the map room. Sad that you would have had to pay extra for the tower and there is no option to pay, when you actually stay in front of the stairs to the tower. And yes, for the Dan Brown fans: Dante's "Death Mask" is there as well.

We booked a guided tour in French. The group was small - only 8 persons - and the guide took his the time to explain the history of he building and the symbols behind the paintings and sculptures. It just wouldn't have been the same without him deciphering everything for us. We even visited a space outside the normal tour, so it was really worth it.

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

Good place to visit! There are many shops and delicious ice cream. There are also many good restaurants in Florence. There were a lot of tourists.

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!

Both inside and out, this impressive palace museum is an amazing structure of world history, culture, and art. The more one learns about it, the more one appreciates its magnificence.

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
