You can visit the Caffe Verone without going through the museum. It is on the 5th floor, very modern, new, and offers magnificent views of Florence and its surroundings. Besides, what they serve is very good also, and the staff is very pleasant. This is...More

It was my first museum that I visited in Florence; I had a professional interest and I have not been dissapointed. It is an interactive museum and you have to stay around 2 hours to grasp the information and the experience. The only thing that...More

A stark contrast to all the Medici opulence you'll soak up in the rest of Florence, this was Europe's first ever orphanage. A beautiful building designed by Brunelleschi himself, the history of this foundling hospital is moving and important. The new museum does a great...More

Florence is so full of amazing art and architecture it would take months to see everything. This is possibly the reason that this museum, near the Galleria D'Accademia is often overlooked. Innocenti was a children's hospital founded in the 15th century which quickly became established...More

Had seen on TA that the café on the top terrace of this museum was good, so as we had the Florence Card and could walk straight in, we had lunch there. Actually there is no view, just over some roofs, but there are nice...More

Wow! What an incredible museum, dedicated to about 500 years of children left for whatever reason. The tokens left by parents are particularly moving, as are some of the stories you hear. Those people who have heard of how unmarried mothers were treated in other...More

I visited wanting to honour the memories of those abandoned foundlings from centuries ago, and left feeling pleased that some of their stories had been told. I also felt there was a lot of history not said, and pondered on the quality of the care...More

I recently visited this museum on the recommendation of a Florentine friend, and so glad I did. It's a hidden treasure, a fascinating museum about the institution that took in foundlings and other children in need for the last 600 years. Most poignant are the...More

Another lovely place to visit if you are interested in Italian Renaissance Art. Beautiful architecture by Brunelleschi, outstanding ceramics by Della Robbia and the superb Adoration of the Magi by Gentileschi. Apart from this, you can also appreciate the history of this very old Foundling...More

The museum here is excellent with superb interpretation of history as well as architecture. The stories about abandoned children and the numbers given to the nuns over the years seen via timelines was larger than imagined. The social service mission of this order is impressive....More

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
