Things to do in Palazzo Vecchio
Palazzo della Signoria, better known as Palazzo Vecchio, has been the symbol of the civic power of Florence for over seven centuries. Built between the end of the thirteenth century and the beginning of the fourteenth to house the city’s supreme governing body, the Priori delle Arti and the Gonfalonier of Justice, over time it has been subject to a series of extensions and transformations.
After the entrance leads directly into the Cortile of Michelozzo, the courtyard adorned with stuccoes and frescoes. Upstairs is placed the Salone dei Cinquecento, where a majestic cycle of pictures celebrates the apotheosis of Cosimo de’ Medici and the city of Florence and a rich array of statues accompany Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory.

Reviews Palazzo Vecchio
“it was very interesting tour with perfect tourist guide. I recommend this tour to everybody !”
“Le guide donnait une Information générale situant le contexte. Je m'attendais à davantage d'nformations.”
“The tour overall was great. Be aware that this is an audio guide tour, not a guided tour. Lunch was supposed to be included with this tour but when you get to the restaurant, they had no idea what we were talking about when presented with the voucher.”
