This is not your typical white-walled collection. Old, old treasures, many astonishing, some over 800 years old in a great old stone-walled building. Artworks both beutiful and famous. Incredibly detailed miniatures and more in a spacious setting. What I liked best was that much of...More

We visited this beautiful and historic building and thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Main plaques have both English and Italian. Small labels are Italian only (Thanks God for google translate!) Like most museums we visited in Rime and Florence they have done a good job with...More

Arrived at opening with reserved tickets and enjoyed viewing without the crowds.The sculptures are lovely and the pottery amazing. The history of the building is as fascinating as the variety of art it houses.

great museum, bang in the middle of town but apparently invisible to the crowds visiting uffizi etc. Yes go see David, but don't miss this lovely museum

Wondering through this building I could just see the Florentines wander from room to room. It was hard to imaging the place as a prison though, The art work makes it a definite sight to see while in Florence.

A short visit as we arrived an hour before closing, but worth it to see a fascinating collection of sculpture including Donatello's David and several pieces by Michaelangelo. We went late afternoon, no queuing and relatively quiet.

The Bargello is packed with treasures - and not to be missed. The ancient stones of this former prison building could tell more than a few grim stories from the past. It was outside its walls the young Leonard sketched a hanging man, thrown from...More

Got to door just at opening at 8:15. We were the second couple to get in ( unlike M. Academia where we paid twice entrance fee to skip the line)! There is just as much art here as at Academia although you don't get to...More

Saw some great sculpture but had no audio guide and the written stuff was sketchy. Easy to find and on a main route from the Duomo to Ponte Vecchio.

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

Hi In all honesty I didn't find them particularly engaging but definitely not rude. I would really recommend visiting the museum
