  • This museum is deliberate, well paced and easy to enjoy. The audio guide was a huge bonus; type in the number of a painting you are interested in, and a concise interpretation follows. The rooms...

  • Franchesca obviously loves Florence and being a tour guide. We would definitely seek her out again. Very knowledgeable and her English was superb. All aspects of the tour worked well for us.

  • This is a very nice museum with some quite amazing pieces of art. It is very busy but a visit is highly recommended. Most of the collection is sculptures from first and second centuries, as well as paintings and altarpiece from the 1500 and 1600’s. The building itself is also extensive decorated.
  • Beautiful and interesting gallery filled with paintings, sculptures and beautiful rooms. Takes quite a while to walk through, around 3 hours depending on how long you take on each piece of art work. I would recommend getting the audio guide as it helps you to understand the art in more depth and gives more information than on the plaques. There is also a nice café where you can grab a bite or sit and have a drink. There are a lot of seating area available and Toilets.
