What can one say to describe this museum ? I beg of travelers to be patient and dedicate some time to visit this museum as you would appreciate the beautiful art that you would see later. Simply stunning but very well preserved

We missed this on our first visit to Florence so it was on our list for our 1 1/2 days in Florence. No crowds on a Saturday- they were all at the Ufizzi! The sculptures were amazing, worth the admission alone. But that was but...More

Excellent collection of paintings, sculpture, artefacts connected to the Renaissance. In a very old and rather ornate building. Easy to get to on foot. I found the staff helpful. Free wifi.

I loved this small museum which was filled with sculptures, many of them by the master sculptor Michelangelo himself. But other Renaissance geniuses, notably Donatello, Giambologna, and Cellini, are also represented. There are two main halls, one on the first floor, and another, on the...More

This is a very enjoyable place to visit. As other reviewers have noted, it is much less crowded than the Uffizi or Accademia. Of course, there isn’t nearly as much to see as at those other places, but what is there is of very good...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
