  • I really enjoyed this Palazzo. I’m not a fan of Florence but I do like historical buildings and this one was well worth seeing. The furniture isn’t original to the building but it hardly matters. The ...  more »
  • Beautiful and well preserved example of a medieval Manor House, with frescoed walls and precious furnishings. You feel transported back in time! In every room there are tabs with descriptions: should provide visitors to the plant of the three floors can be visited with the directions of the various rooms in order not to risk not seeing someone, given the distribution a bit labyrinthine.

  • A great example of medieval tower homes that used to fill Florence. You can only see two floors of the building without the free guided tour but it's still worthwhile. There is a very informative video on the ground floor and rooms are well labeled. Lots of stairs to climb here, but definitely worth a quick visit.
  • It is a lovely palace and it gives you a better perspective of the living situations during Medieval Florence.
  • An amazing Palazzo of a wealthy florentine family. Well worth visiting, especially if the top floor kitchens are open. This is one of the only traditional florentine houses open to public in Florence with precious tapestries, furniture and the first private toilets in Florence which only came in to the mainstream one and a half centuries later! The wall frescos are absolutely stunning!
  • old house well pretected. with a wonderful kitchen on the top floor and a large collection of beautiful lace. Great video in the grand floor.
  • Excellent example of Florentine Palazzo built in second half of XV century. Interiors including furniture, frescoes and fine arts are well preserved. This is another must see place at Florence! Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
