“Worth the visit”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Had not read as much about this as the Uffuzi and almost did not go. The ceilings, rooms and views are magnificent and at about half the cost of other museums and galleries. Each room is documented in Italian and English.

“Lifestyles of the rich and narcissistic”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

When you're rich enough to buy the Papacy for one of your family members then you're rich enough and vain enough to display your wealth. The Medici's did that full-on at Palazzo Vecchio. Every room is interesting, from floor to ceiling. But couldn't they provide a couple of raised viewing platforms outside the top floor cafe so we can take better photos of the Duomo from one of best vantage points in the city?

“Okay if you can't get into Uffizi”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We couldn't get into the Uffizi, the Accadmia, or the Duomo on a Sunday last week so we settled for the Palazzo Vecchio. Was okay but nothing to get too excited about. Oh well.

“Underestimated”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Put this higher up on your must see list. The ceilings, rooms and views are fantastic and at time of writing cost almost half the entry fee of the other museums and galleries (although extra to go up the tower). Each room is documented in Italian and English. Photos are allowed without flash.
