The Renaissance palace Palazzo Medici Riccardi was built by Michelozzo di Bartolomeo for Cosimo de' Medici between 1444 and 1484. He moved to Palazzo Vecchio in 1540, but part of the Medici family stayed here until 1659 when Ferdinando II sold it to the Riccardi family, a rich family of bankers who added Baroque decorations. The main draw of the palace is definitely the Chapel of the Magi with walls covered by frescoes by the Renaissance master Benozzo Gozzoli. The courtyard decorated with reliefs of mythological scenes is worth your attention as well. Palazzo Medici Riccardi also houses temporary exhibitions of contemporary artists.
