Impresive old building from in and out. I liked the most the tower. Specialy the climb which is not too difficult- But worth the effort. Even if it is lower than Duomo cupola, the views are spectacular. Best to the area close to Arno river, which you can't see from Duomo.
It's very busy and very hot during the day. In the evening cooler, less hassle from street vendors and the lighting against a darkening sky is really well done. Often some good musicians playing there so you get a nice atmosphere. Grab a gelato and sit a while....,
It is an impressive building, with a strong character covered with history all over it.The inside patio is beautiful, there is an exhibition below and all the collections presented are beautiful.
The Michelangelo's David is copy of original work. but everything inside is genuine and worth you time. It was centre of Florentine government for centuries. and have plenty of things to show you.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at the Palazzo Vecchio and saw every part, but we are very glad they were all included in the Florence Pass, mainly because of the ruins. You purchase separate tickets at the Palazzo Vecchio for the palace itself, to climb the tower, and also to see the archaeology exhibit/ ruins. Had we spent the several... 更多
Having gained priority access with firenze card, I found the war theme sculptures and paintings to be quite unique and a different theme compared to other museums
