Since this is on the Firenze card it didn't cost anything. Except half an hour, which was pretty much wasted, since the permanent ex floor was closed, and the temp exhibits not of much interest.

It's not really bad, but there's not much to this place. A few scattered sculptures, too many photographs of artists in their studios, and not much art considering the size and location of this place. The art they DO have, well not much is that...More

Feeling overwhelmed and footsore after days of viewing famous Renaissance art, statues and architecture? Drop in at the Museo Novecento to see the newer stuff -- Italian art of the 20th century. Opened in 2014, the museum shows about 300 paintings, sculptures, videos and installations....More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
