Museo di Palazzo Davanzati information
Tucked inside a 14th-century warehouse and residence aka Palazzo Davanzati, home to the wealthy Davanzati merchant family from 1578, this palazzo museum with wonderful central loggia, is a gem. Peep at the carved faces of the original owners on the pillars in the inner courtyard and don't miss the 1st-floor Sala Madornale (reception room) with its painted wooden ceiling or the exquisitely decorated Sala dei Pappagalli (Parrot Room) and Camera dei Pavoni (Peacock Bedroom).
