On my first trip to Florence 10 years ago, I just managed to squeeze this gem in, not realizing what a truly incredible museum it is. So on my second trip i made it a priority by booking a private tour with Viator. They offer...More

Wonderful collection of Renaissance sculpture that you can enjoy peacefully as the museum is not as crowded as Academia or Ufizzi.

The Bargello, one of the oldest buildings in Florence, is a former prison and is now a wonderful art museum. I particularly like it because one can walk around all the statues and see them from every angle. In addition there are a number of...More

Most tourists hit the Uffici and the Accademia, but many skip the Bargello. Don't skip it. Wonerful Donatellos, inclding a ve3r different David than Michaelangelo's.

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
