While there are no blockbuster pieces here, the art collection is terrific. Much more moving is the presentation of the history of the institution and its work. The display of objects and histories of children is deeply affecting

We had been to this museum years ago when it was a shell of its current self. It just reopened in June 2016 after being closed for several years. To be honest, the only reason we visited is because it was two blocks from our...More

Brunelleschi's hand is in evidence in this 15th century building. Great frescoes and works of art and the building itself are worth a visit, if you are in the area.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
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
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
