After a week in Florence I asked my husband what one museum he wished to go to again before we leave and he said the Stibbert Museum. It is truly an amazing place to see a massive collection of armor. Plus it is displayed in...More
What can I say but this was one of the most exciting and oddest tours we had in Florence. We were guided in a small group around the collection of Stibbert who was an eccentric 19C collector and our tour guide gave us information in...More
This was well worth the 30 mins stroll from the centre of Florence. Very interesting and well put together museum even though I’m not a armoury/weapons enthusiasts. There were many other exhibits that held interest. The rooms were spectacularly decorated in the original decor still...More

A very interesting extensive collection of armour and weaponry from around the world set within a large beautiful house / museum ... so all round interest for the whole family.
Very helpful and kind staff. The tour was informative and the value good.
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
