Museo Di Palazzo Davanzati, Florence Reviews
Magnifico 14th century palazzo ..
A great example of medieval tower homes that used to fill Florence. You can only see two floors of the building without the free guided tour but it's still worthwhile. There is a very informative video on the ground floor and rooms are well labeled. Lots of stairs to climb here, but definitely worth a quick visit.
Fantastic example of a 14th century Florentine home.
It is a lovely palace and it gives you a better perspective of the living situations during Medieval Florence.
An amazing Palazzo of a wealthy florentine family. Well worth visiting, especially if the top floor kitchens are open. This is one of the only traditional florentine houses open to public in Florence with precious tapestries, furniture and the first private toilets in Florence which only came in to the mainstream one and a half centuries later! The wall frescos are absolutely stunning!
