Beautiful Renaissance sculptures. We did not see a third of the collection due to one floor being closed. I appreciate the employee who advised against the audio tour because of this. Giambologna is now my favorite sculptor. Plan to spend 1-1 1/2 hours here.

This is a less well known site, so doesn't suffer from queues that plague popular sites in Florence. It contains many masterpieces, especially sculptures. Not far from other sites so pay it a visit.

At last no long 'lines' to get in. There is a good mix of paintings, statues and museum pieces and wet hourly enjoyed exploring the Bargello.

There are some incredible bronzes by Cellini, Donatello, Giambologna and others, not to mention a few Michaelangelo's and Della Robbia's terra cotta work. Start at St. Croce and work your way back to the Bargello then head to the Duomo.

Florence is chock full of great museums and churches to visit, so a place like the Bargello can get lost even though it would be a top attraction in many other cities. Excellent sculptures, interesting building, and it's not too crowded to actually see and...More

It was worth visiting but the Accademia and Uffizi have more prominent pieces. Less crowded here, though!

This museum was great, if you like sculpture that is. The building itself was amazing too and the interior courtyard was so quiet you forget there is a city on the outside.

The Bargello, formerly the jail for Renaissance Florence, provides a great space to highlight outstanding sculptures from several periods. It was so interesting to see other interpretations of David here after seeing THE David at the Accademia. I love the Medici lions with crowns, just...More

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
