What to see

Palazzo Vecchio symbolises the city and has been its seat of government for more than seven centuries. Its fantastic sights, bearing witness to every major phase in Florentine history and art, include the ruins of the Roman theatre in its archaeological crypt, its sumptuous monumental apartments decorated by celebrated 15th and 16th century artists, and the breathtaking views to be had from its battlements and tower. The palace also houses such masterpieces of art as Donatello's Judith, Bronzino's paintings in the Chapel of Eleonora and Michelangelo's Victory.

Pratical information and facilities

This palace is also the seat of the city council. Unfortunately this means that on certain special occasions when institutional ceremonies are scheduled, the museum may be totally or partially closed to the public.

WARNING: We cannot always tell a long time in advance whether closure is going to be total or partial, so we strongly advise you to check the "Visitors please note" section before starting your visit.
The ticket is valid for six months from the day of purchase, so you can always buy your ticket on one day and visit the palace on another.

Exhibitions and Events

Ytalia. Energy, Thought, Beauty

June 2nd – October 1st 2017

“Ytalia. Energy, Thought, Beauty” is the new major exhibition of contemporary art promoted by Comune di Firenze and organized by MUS.E. The exhibition will be held in Forte Belvedere and will involve Florence major museums, including the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, Santa Croce Church, Museo Novecento and Museo Marino Marini.
Ytalia will feature works of art by: Giovanni Anselmo, Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi, Alighiero Boetti, Gino De Dominicis, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Nunzio, Mimmo Paladino, Giulio Paolini e Remo Salvadori.
“Ytalia” is an ambitious project with the aim to start a dialogue between Florence’s incredible historical and artistical heritage and the art of the Twentieth Century: daily and metaphysical reality, natural elements and new mythologies are the recurring themes of the selected works of art.
An “invasion” in the heart of Renaissance that aims to bring the attention of the international public on the Italian contemporary art.
The exhibition is directed by Sergio Risaliti and curated by Sergio Risaliti and Marco Bazzini.
