“Pleasant time filler”
Review of Palazzo Blu

At €3 per person this makes a great little place to kill some time and feel cultured. The rooms are beautiful and the permanent collection is broad, including paintings, furniture and coins.

When we visited we were the only people there so the video was not put on in the basement.

There is a distinct lack of English information however. If you do want it there are some poorly printed leaflets available in some of the main rooms which you can fill up your handbag with and then throw away later.

There was no temporary exhibit on as the next one is not due to start until 17/10. I think it is one we would have liked to have seen.

The review summary for Palazzo Blu says it is a great free museum. It actually costs 3 euros, but it's worth it. The rooms are attractive and some of the furnishings are grand. We especially enjoyed the current exhibition on movie posters for classic films, but that exhibit will be replaced by one on Escher's works starting 1 Oct 17. The permanent collection includes a sizable display of coins from antiquity. Recommended.

Entry is only 3 euros. A delightful building with beautiful furniture and porcelain etc. Three floors of exhibits. The highlight is the exhibition on the top floor of the posters advertising iconic film stars from MGM.

did not visit the inside but the outside made for some lovely photo shots - particularly in the evening when the light seemed to explode the colour of this lovely building and if lucky reflections in the River Arno

This was like taking a step back in time and walking through some aristocrats home. Beautiful furniture and fittings.
