Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Tuscany / Province of Florence / Florence / Palazzo Vecchio
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.

This building has a long history and it is the history that is interesting rather than the building itself if you ask me. Also, it is still used as a meeting place for local civic government.

Awesome historical sight , go early and comfortably enjoy touring living history. Handicap accessible, just ask your ticket attendant to direct you. Elevator is small and the doors can close quickly with a thump but you will be able to reach floors 2 & 3 . The art work is breathtaking. * by going early you avoid the wait * Tickets are required
What can be said about this place. Simply beautiful and worth a visit if you’re more than a day in the city. It has beautiful rooms and halls and don’t forget to watch the ceiling above you! Although the line wasn’t too long, about 15 min (October, 11 PM), it’s highly recommended to book in advance, even a day or so before. Entry costs about 12€ (small discount for students) and another 12€ if you’re up to climbing the tower and the roof. Enjoyed it a lot.
