A museum on land downtown that was owned by Michelangelo in a house built by his grand nephew. Contains his first sculptures. The art is beautiful. Very interesting place with none of the crowds of tourists seen elsewhere.

Our personal tour of everything Michelangelo was enhanced by having recently read "The Agony & the Ecstasy". This surprisingly large, not-crowded home (palace?) contains several of his early works as well as other art work picturing Michelangelo along with others. Even though he never lived...More
The Casa Buonarroti is where we are told Michelangelo lived. It is on Via Ghibellina. It also houses some works of art by Michelangelo.
