This house does not compare to the palaces and churches of Florence, but it doesn't try to. It's the house of a rich Renaissance family, the Martellis, and it has a lot of original art and furnishings. The tour guides are from a local high school who give tours for class credit. We had a great one! The house is... More

Randomly visited here. It's the former home of the Martelli family who had connections with the Pucci and Medici families. It has only been open a few years after restoration. When we visited there were no tickets but you could make a donation. It's guided tours only through the many painted rooms but we were lucky to find one of... More

We went on a Friday visit which started at 16:00. We where the two of us and two more couples, so the 6 of us had a private tour around the palazzo! The tour was in english and we could ask for any information we needed. Excellent tour, we learned a lot about the Martelli family as well about Florence... More

I loved the family history attached to this building, as well as the beautiful paintings. Really gave a feel of the personalities throughout the centuries.

This house museum is a lovely, quiet escape from the usual Florence attractions. There are only a handful of rooms, but they are beautiful - each with impressive frescos and period furniture. My favorite was the "garden" room - a room painted as if you were outside. It was created since the property didn't have a garden of it's own.... More

We had passed the closed door to this Villa many times and one day we saw the door open and enquired if the public could visit. Thursday at 5 p.m. was the appointed time and one of the staff gave us a private tour of the apartments. We were astounded at the beauty which lay behind this closed door and... More

I went with my Italian school and It was truly worth my time. I paid three euros to go on an Italian tour and walked through rooms filled with spectacular art and decoration. The paintings were my favourite, but it was also memorable for other aspects of the rooms - ceilings, wallpaper, railings etcetera. The family dates back to the... More

Casa Martelli is easy to overlook in the wealth of offerings in Florence but it should be on your list if you enjoy interior design as much as art. The palazzo typifies a noble residence of Florence going back to the days of the Medici. It was lived in by a member of the Martelli family until about 20 years... More

It was amazing visiting this museum. The very interesting thing does not only come from the paintings but also from the way they put those paintings together on one wall to another. This is true art.
