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.

It was on a thursday and luckily for us on thursday the exhibition is open until 11pm. We could take our time to enjoy a tasteful dinner at the restaurant in the palazzo Strozzi.

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.

An absolutely exquisite palazzo of Firenze! This place hosts exhibitions all along the year. We "saw" from Kandinsky to Pollock at the time we were there and it was open-end until 11 pm on Thursdays. In the palazzo, before entering the exhibition, You have a beautiful "patio" harboring a nice coffee shop and having some jazz concert played late in... More

This is a fantastic exhibition - a collection of Peggy Guggenheim's inspired acquisitions. And now you don't have to fly to New York, or satellite Guggenheim museums, to see some of the masterpieces. I won't pretend I liked it all, but I do admit that I loved the chance of seeing it all. It's worth the climb up the stairs.... More

For a number of years, The Guggenheim in Venice has lent some of its exhibits to various small exhibitions venues in Italy (Vercelli comes to mind). But this was the first time in close to seventy years some have been shown in Florence (where all were originally housed after WW2 until the villa in Venice was purchased.) The exhibition currently... More

The "from Kandinsky to Pollock" exhibition in the Palazzo Strozzi contains an amazing collection of significant artworks from the 1920s to the 1960s. The contrast with all the art elsewhere in Florence is marked. On the evening that we visited it was uncrowded, so we could spend as much time as we wanted looking at the paintings. The exhibition closes... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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.
