Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Florence

3 Via Cavour
Tel: 39 055 276 0340's insider take:

The main reason for visiting this solid 15th-century palazzo, built by Michelozzo, and now the city's prefettura, is to see Benozzo Gozzoli's delightful Cappella dei Magi on the first floor. The frescoes of the Procession of the Magi fill the tiny chapel from floor to ceiling and are exquisitely painted in jewel-like colors with faces of public figures of the day easily recognizable among the lively crowd scene. Gozzoli himself can be spotted among the crowd on the right-hand wall, with his name helpfully written on his red hat.

Open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day except Wednesday.
