Owner description: Florence's principal palace was begun in 1299 and built as the seat of the Signoria, the fathers of the city's republican government.

Some of the rooms in the Palazzo Vecchio date back to Cosimo Medici's time and are in pristine shape. After the first few state rooms, your mind will be overwhelmed with the incredible works of art on just about every surface - walls, ceiling and floor!

Make sure you do not miss going to the tower. Although it is quite a walk the beautiful panoramic photos you can get of Florence are well worth it.

Lovely...crowded..exactly what you expect really. Had coffee in this square and watched the crowds. Horse-drawn carriages, shops lots of tours and tour guides. Don't miss it though!

For me, the art collection in the Palazzo Vecchio was more enjoyable than that of the Ufizzi gallery. It's well worth a visit.

The palace is an imposing structure and just signifies Florence. We did not pay to go into the museum, but just appreciated the inside courtyard and fountain. The copy of David in front is where the original Michelangelo's David was located.

Get a drink at night or have lunch at the Rivoire and enjoy the view of the building and the people watching. So close to the hotel!
