Full description

Standing majestically over the Florence skyline, the Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most recognized symbols of the city. Built during the Middle Ages, it still preserves the austere architecture of the 14th century, and provides the highest viewpoint in the city from Brunelleschi’s Dome. Enter the elegant courtyard by Michelozzo, and admire the beautiful “Hall of the 500.” See an intimate study of Francesco I de’ Medici, as well as the private apartments of Eleonora of Toledo and Cosimo I de’ Medici. Explore the extravagant boardrooms with their stunning frescoes, paintings, and statues of the greatest Renaissance artists, such as Michelangelo, Donatello, Verrocchio, Vasari, Ghirlandaio, and Bronzino.

    Very impressive

    I am very happy that we chose the tour. Apart from bypassing the long queue, our guide's explanations were extremely interesting and were conveyed in a humorous way. The painting of the dome is exceptional, it could (and may also) stand there for hours. The view from the top is fantastic, the ascent is good with average fitness despite the heat.

    A great professional guide

    We thought the tour was in Spanish, anyway between our English and desire to put the guide with their buenisimas explanations compensó.Otra time please stay clear language that is going to give or if possible that this is offered in two languages, the guide helps us a bit because he speaks perfect Spanish, but English speakers do not seem to like to share them with the guías..cosas of false moral superiority ...

    Der Palazzo Vecchio ist ein Muss für jeden Florenzbesucher. Geschichte der Stadt und der Medici hautnah. Der Prunk in den Räumen und Säälen lässt einen staunen. Für mich deutlich interessanter als Gemälde und Skulpturensammlungen. Durch den Audioguide hatte man die Möglichkeit, in eigenem Tempo durch die Räume zu schlendern und alles auf sich wirken zu lassen. Es war auch überhaupt nicht überlaufen, teilweise waren wir allein in drr er n Räumen. Absolute Empfehlung für Geschichtsinteressierte.
