    It was really crowded
    Having a knowledgeable guide like Francesca was a blessing
    She made sure we saw all the key items and also provided a lot of history that I was not aware of
    Thanks Francesca!!!

    Absolutely unreal the history and feel of this place when walking in and seeing and reading about Michelangelo and all the other artists and sculptors.

    This is the museum for me in Florence. The amount of masterpieces is extraordinary and seeing Madonna Della Seggiola by Raphael in real life, WOW!!

    Tip: You can easily reserve a ticket via their website. Saves a lot of time when your there.

    This museum has been totally upgraded and re-staged over the last several years. The display of art work is far more coherent, and the far easier to appreciate than the former, somewhat hodge-podge display. I was very impressed with the improvements. It’s no Uffizi, but it is definitely worth a visit.

    Palazzo Pitti might be the most impressive museum of Florence and one of the best in the world.
    Houndreds of years ago the Medici family - one of the richest dynasties the world has ever seen - used to live here. Over generations this family created an environment in which art and humanism flourished. One example: Lorenzo de Medici asked for the best two pupils of Ghirlandaio (a Florentinian master in fresco painting) - and Michelangelo was sent as one of them to become a sculptor at Lorenzo’s palace. I uploaded a sculpture that shows the young Michelangelo creating his first marble work „the Satyr“.
    The palace today almost bursts with sculptures and paintings and leaves a deep impression of the wealth of art and culture the European continent produced both during and after the Renaissance.

    A bit overpriced, but the temporary exhibit in the crypt (Natura exhibita) made it worth the visit. I initially thought that paying admission to the basilica gave me access to the tombs of the early Medici (Cosimo the Elder) in the Old Sacristy as well as the Medici chapel (new Sacristy with Lorenzo and later). The later (and more impressive) is a separate ticket at a separate gate. Donatelo is also interred at the Basilica.

    Our walking tour guide brought us here to explain Renaissance history. It is free to enter the ground floor and view the beauty of the architecture.

    This is a fantastic museum! The tour guide was very informative and provided a tour in both English and Italian. The rooms were filled with spectacular collections of armor, weapons, and clothing. The rooms in the museum and the adjacent house were exquisitely decorated. The tour guide also spoke about the original collector, Frederick Stibbert, who devoted his life to collecting the artefacts. I would definitely recommend this museum - I would definitely visit it again! I have visited many museums in Florence and the Stibbert museum is now one of my favourites - It's incredibly unique and fun!

    This was my last stop in Florence and I am so glad I went in. The church is small but has the most beautiful tarbancle I’ve ever seen. It’s very quiet and peaceful and has some art. I went onto the museum which houses the original statues, that you see outside in the niches. They are stunning and worth viewing, especially the four crowned saints which is so detailed you can see the stubble! Finally, the upper floor has the most stunning views of Florence, giving you a panorama of the city, with the Duomo to one side and the Palazzo Vecchio to another. I didn’t climb the Duomo as both the heat and the wait seemed too much. This was such a delight. It was quiet and the stairs are manageable, although still a hike. I was so pleased I had left this to last as it did allow me to see Florence in all its glory. An unexpected delight.

    A small and interesting museum packed with models, explanations and exhibits. Building a bridge, hands on, at one of the tables was a great way to get involved. But we found many of the interactive exhibits a little rickety, so we didn’t dare to touch them especially with warning signs all over asking for extreme caution to be exercised! Nevertheless we really enjoyed it and left with a deeper insight into the mind of an undoubted genius.

    Admission is free if you buy the Uffizi Gallery 5 museum ticket, so we weren't expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised. The museum is quite large and has a vast collection of antiquities. This would also be good place to take kids and give them a break from all things renaissance. Impressive ancient Egyptian and Greek collections. We spent a lot more time in this museum than we had originally planned.

    A free/donation based attraction. Belongs to the church which is attached by secret passage way for family members only. Some excellent are on display and many incites into how the rich merchants of Florence lived. As friends of the Medici the family did very well! We ended up with 3 guide speaking a little English each but very knowledgeable.
    worth a visit and easy to get to.

    We stumbled upon this museum when trying to find things to do on our Florence pass before leaving Florence. The guides were very kind, and the one who accompanied us was very patient (he was nominated by another as he spoke the most English, not a lot, but our Italian is limited to about two words) explaining the artwork, artifacts and mission. It provided a down to earth look at an organization providing humanitarian assistance through the ages and apparently the work continues.
