2 tips for visiting the Palazzo Medici Riccardi

Chapel of the Magi: Insider Tip for Art FansMany a guest says of the impressive Chapel of the Magi that it is worth visiting Florence just for its sake. The colorful frescoes painted by Gozzoli show the path of the Magi, but also depict the princely family as part of the biblical story.

Book a Guided Tour or Inform in AdvanceSince relatively little information about art is offered inside the Palazzo, it is advisable to book a guide or do your own research in advance if you are more interested.

Palazzo Medici Riccardi: An Early Example of Renaissance Art and Architecture

The Many Attractions of Palazzo Medici Riccardi

Designed in the early Renaissance by Michelozzo around 1444, the building with its comparatively simple exterior façade boasts several areas that are well worth seeing.

Cortile di Michelozzo

The inner courtyard pretends symmetry through refined design, although in reality it is not symmetrical. In addition, the decoration of the stone interior walls and various statues catch the eye.

Giardino Mediceo

Paths paved with mosaics and citrus trees decorate the garden of the palazzo, which, like the courtyard, was still created while the building belonged to the Medici.

Cappella dei Magi

On the second floor is the Chapel of the Magi, named for the representation of the Magi decorating the walls: here the Medici family, the patron, is also artfully incorporated in the colorful frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli.

Galleria di Luca Giordano (Mirror Gallery)

The ceiling fresco of the magnificent hall was designed by Luca Giordano, as well as the painted mirrors of the gallery. This room was created in the years 1682 to 1685 after the sale of the palazzo to the Riccardi family.

Museo dei Marmi (Marble Museum)

You can visit the collection of antique marble busts and statues from the Riccardi's collection, which has been on display since 2005 and is part of the exhibition areas of Palazzo Medici Ricccardi.
