We paid for a ticket for this and the gardens but to be honest this was the highlight. You will get a crook in your neck from the most incredible ceilings. There are hundreds of pieces of art on every wall as well as sculpture...More

What a beautiful place to see. So many beautiful ceilings of art work. It’s an absolute must to see in Florence. Walking up those steps to get to the top are hard but if so worth it in the end. Highly recommend it.

One of the definitely "must see" attraction in Florence. Very easy to find, you can spend there a whole day visiting if you have the time!

So much history here. Great place to just sit and enjoy the atmosphere. Some of the restaurants surrounding the piazza aren't great but still worth it if only for the experience.
