Do not miss this museum. It contains, in a spaciously well laid out manner, all of the greatest sculptors of the Renaissance.

Such an easy museum to see. No crowds and a clear focus on all the other 'David's. Beautiful sculptures and really accessible. Makes a change from other museums in Florence.

We enjoyed the museum. The sculptures were amazing. The cost is not overly expensive and the queues are not long. Definitely definitely worth visiting after the other museum's.

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
