Interesting tour of the palace and how the Medici lived in the early Renaissance. The tour included the private chambers of the Medici and the public spaces designed to intimidate. Well worth the time.

Come as a must-see but focus on ground floor items. Stunning items to appreciate in detail. Unfortunately no audio guide was available on the date we visited.

This is a smaller museum whose exhibits are sculptures. We visited it because we wanted to see Donatello's David. The interior of the building itself is architecturally beautiful though it was once the home of the "Captain of Justice" in the XIII century. Not many...More

It is a very nice gallery. It is not over crowded as some other places. You can enjoy the art at your own pace. I would recommend to preorder tickets, but it is not a requirement.

I found this Museum in a very old guide book that we had from 20 years ago when visiting Tuscany, my husband had spent hours and hours on the internet writing down all the places to visit over a couple of days in Florence and...More

Donatello's Bronze David is beautiful. If you are interested in porcelain you should not miss the collection they have. Interesting history of the building. Lots to see but not overwhelming. Don't miss the Chapel inside.

They close at 4 30 when we were clearly told it was 5! The staff was extremely rude and refused to open the doors for a large crowd of expectant and outraged tourists. We were sorely disappointed to be unable to visit this famous museum...More

Very nice museum having an amazing collection of renaissance items: bronzes, coins, sculptures, ivory, porcelaines etc... sometimes the items are too numerous. Presentation and explanations could be improved in a more modern way.

This was definitely a great museum. Many weapons and alot of armor in one section. Beautiful ceilings, art, dishes, furniture, sculpture, more than I could consider in one day. Just the building itself is beautiful and full of history.

After the long lines at the Uffizi we expected the same for the Bargello. To our surprise we walked right up at mid day and bought tickets. This museum allows for strolling in a way that the busier ones don't. And it includes equally impressive...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
