“Sculpture extraordinaire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

This is a small museum packed with classics of sculpture. Of course, the works were awe inspiring. Our only disappointment was that photography was not allowed. Really? What harm can taking a no-flash picture do to a statue?

The courtyard and the sculptures are divine.....Only odd thing was the times they were open. Plan accordingly!

“Must-see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

What can I say, I finally found the time to go see it.
The courtyard which overlooks is wonderful, the arcades, the statues, the atmosphere ...
And then the internal halls contain unexpected treasures.
Two rooms of arms, ceramics, wax, amber, ivory, gold, enamels and bronzes.
You have to take some time to enjoy the visit.
Must visit the various wonders of Florence.

“Well Kept Florence Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Priceless Masterpieces abound in this former prison and torture chamber turned museum. Check out the Donatello statue of David and compare it to Michelangelo's David over a good bottle of Tuscan wine.
