This is a must-see in Florence, but if you've been to the Prado in Madrid, the Louvre in Paris, or the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York you will be disappointed. A good part of the collection is devoted to early religious paintings by artists you've never heard of. Their one claim to fame is the Venus Rising from the Sea by Botticelli--worth the fame--but for me the highlight was walking into one of the galleries and finding four Remrandt portraits--they absolutely outshone everything else. Still, the architecture and sculptures are well worth the trip.
