Masterpiece of architecture. Symbol of the city and the Medicci period. Well preserved. Best viewed at nightime. Museum + exhibitions inside. Must see ... several times.

This attraction is covered by the Firenze card, but in any event it was not busy. The Firenze card also allows you to climb to the top - which is GREAT. What I really loved about this place is the frescos along with the ability to take pictures. It is a really nice break from the huge crowds at the well known museums. Enjoy!

The Palazzo Vecchio is crammed with history and spectacular art, even a lovely Michelangelo. Room after room was an interesting surprise, topped off with incredible views from the tower (which I highly recommend you don't skip).

My visit was not very crowded.

Right next to the Uffizi the Palazzo Vecchio is a very busy. The entrance courtyard is beautiful. Important tip..... it is closed on a Thursday afternoon so we didn't get chance to clime to the top!

A building with may impressively decorated and restored rooms. A very long staircase to get up there and very crowded but worth a visit.
