We did both the Palazzo Vecchio palace and climbed the Arnolfo Tower. If you’re tight on time and have already climbed the Duomo and/or Giotto’s bell tower, I think you can skip the tower and just tour the Palazzo Vecchio. The palace was beautiful, especially the main room and all the frescoes. Having the video guide was also nice as it gave you flexibility to choose what you wanted to listen to at your own pace.

Definitely recommend climbing the tower. I always recommend climbing a tower if that is an option. I enjoyed visiting the palazzo vecchio but the multimedia tablet wasn’t super clear on how to use and which path to take. It was long and gave superfluous information which was a bit much for my liking. Overall cool experience. Kind of pricey.

Once you become familiar with your surroundings, it was easy to connect the video with each room. For me and my husband, we appreciated the video guide. It had the perfect amount of information without going over board. Due to the rainy weather, the tower was unaccessible so be aware of that. Other than that, it was absolutely beautiful. The video did a great job showing what the rooms would have looked like during the Medici reign. FYI: if you forgot your earphones no need to worry as they will provide you with disposable ones.
