What to expect
Meet your guide at the Bargello Museum in central Florence, home to Italy’s most comprehensive collection of Tuscan Renaissance sculpture. Admire the austere-looking building, a fortified palace dating from 1255 that was the city’s first public building. Originally the residence and office of Florence’s captain of police, it was used as a barracks, prison, and execution site. Take in the crenelated tower and courtyard, and use the pre-booked admission ticket to skip the main entrance lines.  Head inside and begin your privately guided tour, walking around the 2-story museum to see its highlights. Along the way, listen as your guide reveals the history of the artworks, shedding light on the sculptors who created them and why. Admire the statues of David and St. George by Donatello, and masterworks such as the delicately poised bronze Mercury by Giambologna, created in 1564. Stroll through the areas dedicated to the glazed terracotta works of Giovanni and Andrea della Robbia, and spend time exploring the room that showcases sculptures by Michelangelo. View Bacchus, Michelangelo’s earliest major sculpture, depicting a slightly unsteady God of Wine, and see other Michelangelo masterpieces like the round Pitti Tondo depicting the Madonna and child, and the bust of Brutus. Check out other sights that attest to the Bargello’s history, such as the hook once used for the hanging execution ropes, and view the museum square, the Piazza di San Firenze. Also, stroll to see the nearby Badia Fiorentina, a 10th-century abbey regarded as one of Florence’s hidden gems. Admire the abbey's stately exterior and hexagonal bell tower before your tour ends when your guide departs.

    Museo Nazionale del Bargello
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your Private Guide will show one of the most prestigious Museums of Sculptures in the world with masterpieces by the greatest Renaissance artists, among which, just to name a few: the David and St. George by Donatello, the Bacchus and the Round Pitti by Michelangelo, Mercury by Giambologna, besides the magnificent glazed terra-cotta by Giovanni and Andrea della Robbia. The importance of this museum concerning sculptures is comparable to the importance of the Uffizi Museum for paintings. The splendid fortified Bargello palace was the first public Florentine building (1255). It has a beautiful and austere courtyard and a high embattled tower, and owes its name to "bargello" that means "master of the guards" who had their seat here in the sixteenth century. Outside the building, it is still possible to see the hook to which the rope used for hangings was tied. Your visit experience will be further enriched with the explanation of San Firenze square and the particular “Badia Fiorentina” church (exterior visit), a real hidden jewel of the city center, characterized by its hexagonal bell tower.
