“Hidden Treasure”
16 Oct 2017
“Included in the Firenze card”
Taking its name from the English collector Herbert P. Horne (1864-1916,) this art museum houses an impressive group of 14th-century Florentine and Sienese works plus Giotto's St. Stephen, which is rare and the highlight of the collection.

One of the the off the beaten track gems in Florence. A personal collection and a story of one of the champions of Florence before it became a mass tourist zone

We probably would not have visited this museum had it not been included in the Firenze card. The collection is located in a beautiful palazzo close to the Arno River. We were the only two people there at the time and we were "stalked" during...More

This museum was one of our guide's personal favorites and we could see why. Small and crowd-free, you can see that Horne carefully chose what he collected and displayed, and he obviously had quite a refined eye. From walking through the home (now museum), we...More

It is a small museum not far from Santa Croce, which may be underestimated by the tourists, just because there are so many thing to see in Florence. But it's really worth coming here, because this museum is very cosy, full of many masterpieces, among...More

I spent about an hour here last week. It's freezing cold as all the room are off an open courtyard, and the windows were all open too! You can take pictures, there's quite a lot of impressive renaissance furniture to admire. A particularly fine copy...More

It's not one of the more popular ones but inside is a real gem. The history of how Horne acquired the palace and the art collection is fascinating. And it does contain some amazing Renaissance art, some going back to C13th. The guides were helpful...More

The Museo Horne is a nice museum with a good collection of art work. One of the main attractions is the painting of St Stephen. Worth a visit

A very disappointing museum. As much as I was impressed with the Palazzo Davanzati (which has a fee of 2 Euro) I was disappointed with Horne Museum (which has a fee of 7 Euro). At ground level and free of charge you can find a...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
