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.

what a great place! This is a great museum of Michelangelo's early sculpture. There is a lot of interesting family information there too.

This was an home that was filled with pieces selected by Michelangelo's grand nephew, who was named after him. The pieces were very interesting. Not a lot of his own works. I am very glad we had the opportunity to visit but I see others...More

I went for a long walk in search of the Casa Buonarroti, Michelangelo’s former residence. Its facade was very unprepossessing (he was a very stingy guy apparently) and I walked past it before back tracking. A sculpture of him at a very young age and...More

A tribute to Michelangelo assembled by a grand nephew. It is a beautiful home in itself with some early sculptures and unfinished pieces. Not crowded (a nice change of pace) although most of not all signage in Italian. With works by him and of him,...More

This museum is about Michelangelo's nephew, who was born after the artist's death, laying claim to his famous Uncle. It was Buonarroti's home, never that of the artists. The signage throughout is hit and miss with very little in English. During my visit I had...More

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.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
