An interesting site that is not as overwhelming as so many of Florences' museums. Part of the palace is still used for office space and it is fascinating to see council meeting room with modern chairs and podium and medieval tapestries on the walls. The Palazzo Medici Riccardo designed by Michelozzo as a city home for Cosimo de Medici. At first site this appears to be an ugly rough hewn building - but the external walls helped keep the enemies of the family out - once inside there is an elegant courtyard and stairs leading up to the family chapel and some absolutely stunning rooms.
