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.

While staying in Fireneze, and like the sculptures the museum is an absolute must. Go and visit! Watch the Bacchus of Michelangelo, which is a miracle :)

If the Uffizi crowds exhaust you, head over to the Bargello where some supreme sculpture is set alongside a surprisingly rich selection of decorative objects, from ivory to armour. There are important works here form Donatello, Bellini and Michelangelo, among others, making this well worth...More

Some really interesting sculptures to see in this museum located in the former prison. Less crowded than some other venues and no pre-booking required.

Arrived at opening with reserved tickets and enjoyed viewing without the crowds.The sculptures are lovely and the pottery amazing. The history of the building is as fascinating as the variety of art it houses.

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
