We went early in the morning (always a good idea in tourist season). The museum has by far the best statue collection in Florence, way better than the Academia (which would not be worth a visit at all if it did not have David). The...More

Although this is one of the lesser-known museums in the city, I recommend it highly! It is not overly expensive, it is not crowded, and the displays are very nice. It houses the sculpture collection of the Medici family so it is also unique in...More

We enjoyed the museum. The sculptures were amazing. The cost is not overly expensive and the queues are not long. Definitely definitely worth visiting after the other museum's.

Interesting place to visit. Lot to see if you like statues and paintings. Lots of stairs to climb, but worth it see the high ceilings and the architecture

This was one of our favorite spots in Florence, and it's not hard to see why: they have some of Michelangelo's masterpieces and a huge collection of gems, ivory and other treasures that are absolutely amazing. To top it all off, there are no crowds!...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
