The Museo Bargello is an often overlooked treasure in Florence. Take an hour or two one afternoon to explore the magnificent collection of sculpture and art at the Bargello--you won't regret it.

If you fail to be moved by the sculpture in the Bargello, you have no soul. It is truly amazing that a man created these flowing forms from a block of stone. To mis-quote Michaelangelo, the only disappointment is that they do not speak.

You will not be sorry you have visited this very special museum. It is absolutely filled with amazing treasures of Art. Sculptures of wonder. It is not too big so not overwhelming but big enough to be well worth the trip and for you to come away thrilled that you made a visit. I would highly recommend a trip to the Bargello!

Have missed this spot on previous trips to Florence, but decided to see it this time. It is a beautiful building with a vast array of statuary and decorative arts. We had hired a local guide, as I am not certain that English language tours were offered.

I first saw the collection at the Bargello in 2003 and wanted to revisit. I was not disappointed and, if anything, got more out of this time than before because I had time to focus on particular works rather than being overawed by everything. If you like sculpture then this is the place to go in addition to the Academmia.
