The Museo dei Ragazzi is located inside Palazzo Vecchio, one of its best known iconic monuments and the most important civic museum of Florence as well. Today, in the fastous halls of Cosimo’s Court are located also the activities of the Museo dei Ragazzi: there are two small theatres, one called the Stanza delle Storie di Bia e Garcia for younger visitors (from 3 to 7), and the other, known as the Civiltà del Rinascimento a Firenze for older children; the Museum also offers a large multimedia zone, a workshop for painting activities and an area devoted to games for exploring perspective.

We were able to peer into the restoration department, as one would expect a massive room large enough to reweave the massive textiles of that period. The entire museum is fabulous, I was a bit overwhelmed with all that 16th C. iconic Christos, had no idea how prevalent that depiction of Christ was. A 'no miss' if you go to... More

If you have young children, let's face it, the centre of Florence can sometimes be a bit boring. Unless they like shopping or are mini-history freaks, apart from the Disney store and the shows in Piazza della Repubblica, there's not too much to do... The Museo dei Ragazzi in Palazzo Vecchio offers tours for families with children (there are different... More

This was a very interesting and well-conceived tour, thanks to Francesca. She did a good job involving our kids and explaining how the building structure and secret rooms illuminate the Medicis personalities.

I signed up in advanced for a tour in English about the life in the Palazzo, and I'm so glad I did. We got a personal, behind the "hidden door" tour of the palazzo, with a history of Florence thrown in. And all for about 4 euros! I only wish every museum had such a great service as this. My...

We went on one of the tours for kids on Easter Sunday - I was amazed they were open, but the place was packed! The Palazzo Vecchio is an absolutely amazing place to visit generally, but I really appreciated the fact that the Museo dei Ragazzi offers tours specifically geared to kids. Our tour guide was good and spoke English... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
