Luca, our guide, introduced us to this Palace and explained the history and what happened to the owner, who was at one time as rich as Medicis but lost his wealth. The City took it over and use it for art works.

I really liked this place - full of history and memories of Medici family. Wonderful architecture and art can be seen here, gorgous place! Amazing paintings, sculptures and oveall the big hall of incredible heigth and space. I could almost breathe the history here.

This tour gives you an insight into history of the palace and you will be accompained through impressive old narrow passages that keep so many secrets! Excellent tour and very professional guide Marco. Very recommended.

The Leonardo exhibit is in the church of Santa Maria Novella. This church is definitely worth a visit and has good exhibits. …
