What an amazing space with so many neat, spectacular and mind-bobbling artistic feats under one roof. The artistic talen and sheer skill blew my mind and I found myself in deep admiration that such wonders could be created by hand... It boggles the mind.

This museum is one of my favorite places to visit when I am in Florence. Once you have been to it, the stone inlay on the altars in the Medici Chapel in San Lorenzo with the Michelangelo sculptures are even more amazing.

Exquisite workmanship in seldom-seen artistry. The second-floor collection of the tools used to create these extraordinary pieces was fascinating in itself.

In addition to the usual table tops made out of inlaid stones, there were some "pictures" made entirely of pieces of stone put together: for example, a blue and white agate represented the sky.

A friend of mine recommended to go visit this small museum, and I am glad I did. The entrance fee is modest (Eur 4), and each room has nicely made up explanations in 4 languages. The artistry and skills for handling semiprecious stones plus the...More

You can get in and out of this museum in under 45 minutes, but it is absolutely worth the time and (minimal) effort. Right around the corner from Galleria dell'Accademia, it is convenient to other plans (but you really need to get to the other...More

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a

students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
