The Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most iconic landmarks in Florence and a must-visit when in the city that was the bedrock of Italian Renaissance. Here are some must-see attractions at Palazzo Vecchio:

Palazzo Vecchio Courts

Originally decorated by Italian artist Michelozzo, the courts of Palazzo Vecchio are a sight to behold. The current version redecorated by Vasari in a decidedly more mannerist way is equally stunning with each fresco paying an homage to the worker’s federations that found root in Florence during the glory days of the Renaissance.

The Arnolfo Tower

The Arnolfo Tower in Palazzo Vecchio is amongst the highest towers in Florence and is clearly visible from numerous parts of the city. This section of the building was constructed in 1310 after the rest of the work was completed. Because of its late addition, the tower is not centered perfectly at the Palazzo Vecchio but is along the south side instead.

Francesco’s First Studio

Situated behind the Cinquecento Salon is a charming small room; Francesco de Medici’s personal studio. The studio was decorated by Vasari and Francesco de Medici himself added sculptures and paintings from his personal collection, all of which are still showcased to date.

The Map Room

Former Duke of Florence, Cosimo I, created this room completely dedicated to terrestrial and celestial maps. A fascinating section of the museum, a total of 53 maps of not just countries, cities, and the world but stars and space can be found here, along with unique scientific instruments. 
Historic and artistic gems can be found in every corner of the city of Florence, featuring work by some of the most revered artists to have walked this planet. If you’re looking for more things to do in the city of Florence, here are some of the top museums that cannot be missed.
