Great chance to see how an upper middle class family lived during the Middle Ages. Very interesting and historic and lacking in tourists.

This is not the site to visit if you only have a couple of days in Florence, but it is a fascinating glimpse into the daily life and household of a wealthy family dating back to a time before the Americas were even discovered. The gothic building is impressive and has been subjected to many changes over the centuries, as... More

Although this is in the centre of the city, it is missed by many. It is well worth the time to go inside. It is a perfect example of a wealthy merchant family house. Not as opulent as the palaces nearby, but impressive non the less. The entry fee gives access to the first two floors. The upper floors, which... More

This museum provides an interesting view of how rich people lived during the renaissance. This was an actual home for hundreds of years and it is definitely worth seeing.

As soon as you step into this museum you are at once transported back to Italian medieval history. It was one of my favourite places to see whilst in Florence; the window views across terracotta roofs of neighbouring buildings were beguiling ...

I am a history buff and I love places that show how people use to live hundreds of years ago and this is it for Northern Italy. I send everyone here and all come away amazed. Built in the mid 1300's and surviving bombs in WWII this shows you how a wealthy family lived and what they accumulated over the... More

We go reservations for a specific time to allow us to visit all the floors of this old palazzo. We were in a group with a guide doing Italian and French but not English. You do not need a guide really. This building that is older than most allows you to get a glimpse of life in the 12-1300s. You... More

Visit the Museo Della Casa Fiorentina Antica housed in the Palazzo. This is a great example of the splendor in which the very rich lived. The structure has had multiple changes and restorations, but remains much the way it would have originally been and dates back to the 14th century.

Whilst walking around the centre of Florence we came across this beautifully restored renaissance palace, worth a visit. There are a number of beautiful rooms with antique furnishings, all with clear descriptions (also in English), and not at all busy. It is a shame that it is let down by the lack of information supplied when buying a ticket: the... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
