    I was expecting this to be more impressive than it was. After seeing the best of Rome and Florence this didn't stand up. See it from the outside and maybe don't go in if you're pressed for time.

    A great option for a sight to see in the evening. It stays open later than most other sights and offers a chance to see a lot of Vasari's works.

    A really cool architectural Palazzo, which is still home of local politics. The "hall of five hundred" and the tower are the best parts!

  • Mandar P.

    During summer it's open till 11pm. You can access the lower level of the tower from 9 to 11 for €2 more. The awesome views of the Duomo are absolutely worth it!

    Do the tower climb for a great view of the Duomo (without the crowds!). The guided tours - ours was in English - are really interesting and make the place come to life.

    Michelangelo lived here for 5 years, until Lorenzo The Magnificent’s death. Inside there's "The Genius of Victory”. Find Michelangelo in Florence:

    Also open late in the evening (up until midnight), which is rare in Florence. Worth checking out.

    One of the very few museums that opens until midnight in Florence. Climb up the tower for a fantastic view of the duomo.

  • Annika O.

    I recommend to visit it at the evening - there could be only a few people along with you, more time to spend, charming atmosphere, splendid views to evening Florence.

    The best time to visit is in the evening. There is no people and it's less hot+ night and live music on the square are making awesome atmosphere.
