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

This is a great alternative if you don't want to queue at the Palazzo Vecchio - and is a gem in itself. The Bargello features sculptures and objects of different materials in a medivial and Renaissance palace. You will enjoy the patio with the grand...More

See important Renaissance statues at the Bargello museum! The 3 floored museum has works such as 'David' by Donatello and 'Florence Triumphant over Pisa' by Giambologna.

Florence visit should be based on all of the historic places and else afterwards, so, pay a visit to this one as well.

Many people skip this gem of a museum, and that is a huge mistake. Several of my favorite works are located here, and the building itself is worth the visit.

This is a treasure in Florence with some stunning pieces by Michelangelo and, of course, the David that does not require hours of waiting and sharing with hundreds of other tourists. It is a beautiful museum that is not over-curated and overwhelming. Instead it is...More

If you're not into art, stay outside. But, if you've been to Uffizi and Accademia and are longing for a little more sculpture, by all means visit Museo Nazionale del Bargello. Several excellent works are inside but first you'll be struck by the stunning courtyard...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
