“A Less Crowded Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

The Bargello Museum is full of beautiful sculptures including some early works by Michelangelo and Donatello's David as well as extensive collections of ceramics and jewellery. The building itself is a 13th century palazzo, former Medici court and prison and is very interesting in its own right. One of the best features of the Bargello is that it is smaller in scale and doesn't attract the hordes that visit the Uffizi or Accademia so the experience is more relaxed. The opening hours are a bit irregular so check before you visit.

The Museo del Bargello is a gem and not to be missed. After having visited the Uffizi and its suffocating crowds my visit to del Bargello was refreshing. The museo if chock full of important Renaissance art and not to be missed!

“Average - but views from top make it worth it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

Quite a few folors to look at - great pictures. At the top you get the chance to climb up to the old ramparts of the duomo and great views all over the city - well worth it
