Really interesting place, and the "Secret Passages" tour (which was 5 euros on top of the museum entry) was definitely worth doing. Our guide, Francesca, was very knowledgeable, and interesting, and we got to see areas of the museum not open to the public. I...More
From the outside, you could mistake this palace as just a building on a square, but when you begin to explore, you realise it's quite the opposite. Built in various stages and extended over the centuries, this palace has had many different occupants, including the...More
It looks very old palace and we have nice time here at Old Palace is the town hall of Florence, Italy. It overlooks the Piazza della Signoria with its copy of Michelangelo's David statue as well as the gallery of statues in the adjacent Loggia...More
I absolutely love this museum! It's very different from Uffizi or Accademia, but in some ways it's even more exciting! First, it has the famous Hall of the Five Hundred, which is the room where Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo painted together the famous frescoes...More
Most remarkable building and evidence of another age and lifestyle. The frescos and ceilings in the main rooms are deep and wonderful, showing the battles the family undertook to dominate Early Florentine life. Best enjoyed over a relaxing dinner, which we had arranged as a...More
Our family of 4 (wtih 2 teens) did the Secret Passages guided tour at Palazzo Vecchio. It was very well done and extremely informative. You enter the building through a tiny exterior door and ascend secret staircases in the walls. You see secret rooms used...More
You can easily spend 3 hours in this place, the ticket costs 19.50 and gives access to the palace, the underground museum and the tower. Be prepared to go up few steps but get great view. The whole play is covered with work of art...More
Hello, I‘m not sure, I didn’t try guided tours. Theoretically it should be possible since guided tours also include entry fee, but it’s better to ask somebody else. Enjoy the tour, I wish I had it as well!

Hi Tia. I just reviewed the video I took of the climb up and down the stairs. I'm not thrilled with heights by any means but the view from the top makes it well worth it. The steep stairs are made of stone and there are no spaces in between. In fact, for most of the journey up the stairs, you can't even see outside so you're not even aware of the height. The stairways are a little narrow-you can fit one person going up and one going down at the same time but when that does happen, it's a little tight but not too claustrophobic. When you get to the top, you are surrounded by a stone wall on all sides so you're not looking down, you're looking out, which makes it easier if you're afraid of heights. The biggest thing you should be concerned about isn't the height, it's the workout you'll get going up the stairs. Just go slow and take your time and you'll be fine!
