About Strozzi Palace

Palazzo Strozzi in Florence is one of the most beautiful Italian Renaissance palaces. Of imposing size, it is located between the homonymous via Strozzi and Piazza Strozzi, and via Tornabuoni, with three grandiose identical portals on as many sides.  A true masterpiece of Florentine Renaissance civil architecture, it was begun at the behest of Filippo Strozzi, a wealthy merchant belonging to one of the wealthiest families in Florence, traditionally hostile to the Medici faction.



Attractions near Strozzi Palace

Piazza della Repubblica0.21km from Strozzi Palace

Piazza della Repubblica is one of the main squares in Florence and marks the center of the city since Roman times. During medieval times the area around the column was densely populated with markets, tabernacles and churches. The square's Giubbe Rosse cafe has long been a meeting place for famous artists and writers, notably those of Futurism.

Church and Museum of Orsanmichele0.27km from Strozzi Palace

This tall structure halfway down Via dei Calzaiuoli looks more like a Gothic warehouse than a church—which is exactly what it was, built as a granary/grain market in 1337. On the ground floor of the square building are the 13th-century arches that originally formed the loggia of the grain market. The second floor was devoted to offices, while the third housed one of the city's municipal grain storehouses, maintained to withstand famine or siege.

St Trinity Bridge0.28km from Strozzi Palace

St Trinity Bridge is a road bridge, elliptical arch bridge, and masonry bridge that was built from 1566 until 1569. The project is located in Firenze, Florence.  It was the oldest elliptic arch bridge in the world, characterized by three flattened ellipses. In addition to the graceful, flattened arches that span the river the bridge is also decorated with statues of the Four Seasons, which appear at each corner of the bridge. It was now one of the major attractions in this area.

The Baptistery of St. John is located  in the heart of the city in the Piazza del Duomo, it is adjacent to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence's most famous landmark with its distinctive pastel-hued marble, tall bell tower and enormous dome designed by Brunelleschi.

L-shaped, it is located in the central part of medieval Florence, south of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.

Loggia dei Lanzi0.38km from Strozzi Palace

The wide arches appealed so much to the Florentines that Michelangelo proposed that they should be continued all around the Piazza della Signoria.
