Palazzo Vecchio has been the symbol of the civic power of Florence for over seven centuries. Among the works of art safeguarded in the museum: the Cortile di Michelozzo; Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento; Donatello’s Judith in the Sala dei Gigli.
Florence's town hall is a very special one. Once the home of the Medici family, it's located right next to the Uffizi gallery and for this reason way too many people skip it :( From the quotes from Dante's Inferno engraved in the courtyard to the delicate 'grottesche' paintings on the ceilings,…
Palazzo Vecchio was the headquarter of the Florentine government and it still seats the City Council. Centrepiece is the Salone dei Cinquecento, one of the most prestigious rooms in the whole of Italy.
Iconic palace where the city council is based. Also been in the movie Hannibal with Anthony Hopkins. Go inside and ask to see the “salone dei 500” for stunning ceilings.

“The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is an imposing gothic church built on the site where the ancient Cathedral of Florence stood, the Church of Santa Reparata, whose remains are visible in the crypt. Visiting the Cathedral is free! The entrance to the Cathedral is free and for this reason, there are long queues to enter. Don’t worry, usually, the line moves quite fast. The number of visitors inside the Cathedral is limited mainly because of the noise that comes to be created in this place of religious worship; recently (from July 16, 2012) to improve the situation, the directors of the Duomo decided to oblige groups of more than 4 people to rent radios or audio guides (cost from 2 up to 2.50 euros per person) in order to reduce the noise of visitors and increase the number of persons allowed in every single moment. ”
“Walking distance from home 15 min. Many copies of this statue exist and 2 of these are in Florence, but the original is absolutely worth to be seen”
