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 were just walking around and didn’t have this on our list of things to do. We were winding down our Florence trip and came across this place. The exterior attracted us and once inside it was very nicely done and the crowds were not...More
Well, we finally got to see the top floor of this wonderful museum with all the della Robbia terracotta sculptures. They are beautiful but think my favourite is the beautiful Donatello David. So much more to my taste than the uber famous Michelangelo version.
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
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
