This museum is located inside a building that used to be a prison. It's full of wonderful sculptures. A visit will take you back in time.

There are many masterpieces spread throughout the museum. This was a worthwhile stop of a lesser known site. Very little crowd made the visit that much more enjoyable. Would have liked to have heard more about the locations history (perhaps it had it, but we...More

Rarely included on tours, the Bargello quickly became one of our favorite museums in Italy. Originally the residence of the Captain of the people (13th century), the Bargello evolved into a 16th century prison complete with torture and execution chambers. And the cold exterior remains...More

For us, in many ways, the building itself was the star of our visit. The architecture and many painted ceilings are just beautiful. There are many rooms of statuary, bronzes, religious art, porcelain, armor, glass and so on. It would be a perfect rainy day...More

This is a fascinating place just to stroll around in to admire the building, let alone the exhibits. We happened upon a string quartet doing a Schubert concert in the courtyard, one of our best experiences in Florence. Donatello's David is worth a good twenty...More

Everything in the Museo is housed in the Palazzo. You get to see the room of the 500, the amazing rooms and learn the history. It's part of what defines Florence.

I always stop by when I'm in Florence. A superb collection, worth billions. All of the best sculptors are represented and there are also great collections of other arts and artifacts.

Really enjoyed viewing these beautiful sculptures, and found that I prefer sculpture to paintings. This gallery is less crowded and off the beaten path, so we could purchase a just 1/2 hour to visiting. Plan to make a stop here - it is breathtaking!

I'm no expert when it comes to art, but I loved this gallery/ museum. Gorgeous sculptures, well laid out and not too busy, even when the rest of Florence was heaving. A great way to spend an hour or two.

Duomo
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
