The advice from the Rick Steves guidebook was correct- the best part of this museum is in the ground floor room near the outdoor staircase & the Donatello room. IF you have extra time, see the rest of the museum but these were definitely the highlights. We saw both parts Rick Steves mentioned in around an hour going at a... More

I would definitely recommend Bargello for those who love sculptures! Both indoors and outdoors have many famous pieces. It was such a pleasant visit. At 4 euros entrance, I'd say it's a steal!

This former prison now house loads of sculptures from the Renaissance era. Checked out this neat little collection before heading to Basilica San Miniato al Monte later in the day

If you enjoy sculptures, this is the place to go. And the best thing is that there is never (never) a queue to get in.

We had walked past here a few times and had no idea it was a museum. We were pleasantly surprised as they have a great collection and we didn't feel crowded. As with most museums in Italy, the building itself is gorgeous and very interesting. They sell very pretty jewellery in the gift shop and many other things you would... More

This museum is perfect if you want to see some beautiful works of art in a low key not over-crowded setting. Also very reasonably priced. We wandered happily for an hour or so but could have stayed longer. Truly worth a visit.

It is very difficult to find a better place to appreciate some of the greatest sculptures in the world, with artists like Michelangelo, Donatello, Verrocchio, Luca Della Robbia, Cellini and Gianbologna, competition is difficult. Besides seeing the original door slabs of Brunelleschi and Ghiberti for the Baptistery Doors. Unfortunately the upper floor was closed and the Museum opens only in... More

I'd never been, despite my many visits to Florence. Donatello's David is so beautiful, and so different from Michelangelo's. Enjoy!

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
