Palazzo Vecchio Reviews
This Palazzo Vecchio is very popular with the tourists. This square has many lovely buildings and a sculptures. There are many cafes and restaurants but of course you pay a higher price. If you can.... more »
Impossible to miss the Palazzo! Prepare to walk and to take many steeps, but the view is incredible!! more »
Very interesting. Do the excavation tour, well worth it if you stop and listen to the 10 minute movie. If it looks like rain either don't bother with the tower or do it straight away before the rain as it is closed when wet.
Beautiful. Just that. Each room is decorated in a specific way. The artists that worked on this palace truly gave it a flavour of aristocracy while keeping the warmth of a home. If you're a student in the E.U. you get a small discount. There are lots of different options. You can choose any combination of visits: -to the palace -to the tower -to the underground recently discovered roman theater On a good day, the line for the tickets is not that long (considering other places of interest in Florence) KEEP IN MIND! there is usually a line (around thirty minutes wait) for the tower, AFTER you have purchased your ticket.
