Palazzo Vecchio, also known as Palazzo della Signoria, was built in the 13th century and became the site of the city council in 1871. The palazzo now acts as a spectacular museum. A Romanesque fortress-palace, it overlooks the Piazza della Signoria which contains a copy of Michelangelo’s famous David statue. The private rooms of the palazzo feature works by Michelangelo and Donatello.
