Palazzo Strozzi Tours

star-4.5
2 Reviews
Palazzo Strozzi
One of the finest examples of renaissance architecture in Florence, Palazzo Strozzi was built in the 15th century for the wealthy Strozzi family and today serves as an exhibition space hosting some of the city’s most prestigious shows. Though not among Florence’s most famous venues, it will appeal to visiting art aficionados.

The Basics
Occupying an entire city block in the historic center of Florence, this imposing stone palace has large upstairs galleries and halls that have hosted exhibitions of artists from Cézanne to Ai Weiwei. The elegant central courtyard also hosts temporary art installations as well as concerts, films, and cultural activities in the summer. 

Walking, bike, and Segway tours of Florence highlights generally stop by Palazzo Strozzi to admire its renaissance architecture, but art lovers should book skip-the-line tickets in advance to enter. Many small-group and private tours of Florence also include famous nearby attractions such as the Duomo, Uffizi, and Accademia, home to Michelangelo’s David

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Photography is allowed in the special exhibitions; video is not.
  • Disabled access to Palazzo Strozzi is on Via Strozzi; the upstairs galleries are accessible via an elevator.
  • Large bags, backpacks, and umbrellas must be left at the free coat check.
  • There is a café located in the Palazzo Strozzi courtyard.

How to Get There
Palazzo Strozzi is located on Piazza Strozzi in the center of Florence, just a 5-minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station.

When to Get There
The internal courtyard at Palazzo Strozzi is open daily until 11pm; the upstairs galleries and halls are only open for events and exhibitions.

The Strozzi-Medici Rivalry
Locked in a complicated political and financial rivalry with the Medici family for decades, the Strozzi family was one of the most powerful in Florence until their exile in 1434. In 1466, Filippo Strozzi was able to consolidate enough wealth and power to re-enter the city, and his first step was to build Palazzo Strozzi. The residence was designed to resemble the Palazzo Medici but surpass it in size and elegance as a clear architectural and political statement to the citizens of Florence.
