I enjoyed this off-the-beaten-path (no lines! no crowds!) museum that holds one man's collection and ponders ethical questions about collecting. Do you restore them or leave them as is? Is it right to take them out of their original context? Like the Isabella Stewart Gardiner...More

Upon leaving the Church of Saint Croce turn left on head for the river, cross over the Ponte (bridge) alla Grazie, walk across the Piazza del Mozzi heading south and on the left hand side is the museum Bardini. This is a fairly new collection...More

In amongst the madness that has become life in Florence, lies an oasis of tranquil beauty with the treasures collected by this clever man. It is a stand out for our week in Florence and would encourage everyone to use their Firenze card here first!

Great to see some collections of antiques. We spent an hour here and enjoyed the statues, wooden carvings, carpets, furniture, frames, bronze, urns, weapons, early photos and more. John Currin paintings were on display throughout the museum as well at the time.

This Museum is absolutely awesome! The exhibition was amazing. The Bueno brothers have style. There was a quiet calm atmosphere - cool too after that climb! The terrace has a better view of Florence than from the Piazza Michelangelo. And its much more private too!...More

Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
