Everything went fine, although the Audioguide in the palazzo is not as good as it seems like. It looks super professional, with tablet and 3d map and everything, but it is really confusing sometimes and we just abandoned it halfway through. Now about the service itself, it is exactly as it is advertised, easy to find and very straightforward, so we were happy.

Palazzo Vecchio is beautiful and worth seeing. I would not however recommend the audio guide. The palace is not marked appropriately for the audio guide so you are never sure if what you are hearing sync’s with what you are listening to. We ended up shutting it off mid way through.

Palazzo Vecchio fantastic

We bought the entrance ticket and an audioguide for the Palazzo Vecchio. We entered really quickly and the audioguide was very informative so that we could learn about the history of the Palazzo :) The Palazzo was beautiful and it is definitely worth a visit, but the entrance does not give you entrance to the tower. So please be aware of that.
