4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web
Admire Romanesque architecture in the heart of Tuscany at Palazzo Vecchio. Built at the turn of the 14th century, the palace now serves as the city's town hall and boasts a collection of art and interior decor from the last six centuries. Tour the Salone dei Cinquecento, with its gold-paneled ceiling and colorful murals, or head outside to see the antique, decorative facade and the original site of Michelangelo's "David" statue. You can visit the palace's three courtyards and outdoor areas free of charge, or pay for a complete tour of the building's interior. Put Palazzo Vecchio on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Florence vacation builder.

  • It is a palace that draws attention to the paintings from the walls and ceilings. It has a living room of the 500 that is spectacular. A little face, to visit.

  • Incredibely beautiful palace feature many well decorated rooms & including the massive Salonie dei Cincquececto with its fantastic murals & tapestries & ornate ceiling
  • Don't bother with the archaeological tour. Do be organised and setup a tour (secret passages??) of the museum since I think that would have been amazing. Also the 333 steps to the top of the tower? Worth it.
  • nice walk up to the top of this tower w/out the crazy lines, plus a great view of florence. the museum is good also.
  • Entrada excesivamente cara, 18 €, mejor inversión visitar la galería Uffici o la de la Accademia.
  • A replica of David erected in 1910 now stands above the front entrance door of the Palazzo Vecchio. The Michelangelo's David stood at the entrance from 1504-1873, then it was moved to the Accademia Gallery till now. Don't miss to take more photos here.
