Look deeper at this Palazzo - or get Paola to guide!

This palazzo has subtle signs of the social structures in Florence at the time. Inside you can see the use of proportion in the architecture.

Surrounded by lovely designer shops with windows to die for. Stopped by for cup of coffee in the bar/cafe in the square after long day shopping. Great bargain as summer sales had begun end August and 50% reductions!

This is a center city 500-year-old palace showing the typical appearance of these structures with three levels of varying exterior stone (we learned to recognize these from our guide). We visited when the exhibit "From Kandinsky to Pollock" was showing, a history of Peggy Guggenheim and her incredible contribution to the history of modern art. Unfortunately this exhibit was scheduled... More

It was too good an opportunity to miss while in Florence to visit Palazzo Strozzi for their modern art exhibition, featuring works of such artists of Jackson Pollock, Picasso, Rothko and Kandinsky. The exhibition was extremely well curated and it was a sublime pleasure to see for myself works from some of the modern greats. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity... More

We took a couple of walking tours that went through this area and it was a pleasure to be there. A very beautiful, peaceful Piazza that is surrounded by loads of eating joints and links well to nearby attractions.

For some reason we felt like we were on a movie set where they're shooting a scene of a lover signing a serenade to profess his love to the princess. However, this is quite an administrative building and we stopped by inside it as part of our tour.

My son is a big video gamer. He loves Assassins Creed which apparently gives mention to the Palazzo Strozzi. We stopped for a cafe' and found it to be a nice air conditioned and quiet spot to rest before more adventures.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
