  • Of course, after the crowd of Offices, it's good to find a Museum in which we normally comes, without lining up, and in which it circulates in peace, without jostling. Upon entry, we are seduced by the beautiful, central courtyard with sky blue as natural arch. And then in the enfilade of the various rooms, we marvelled at the diversity and beauty of the sculptures: religious or mythological, scenes (personally, I loved the metamorphosis of Actaeon), also a few allegories. Some pretty ceramics of Della Robbia also. To see again and again without getting bored,.. .we will be back.

  • The Museum is also in the top of the top of the Duomo and the internal and Tower is the place where you can see the views, with just the Festival I should note that when traveling in an open coffin for the event seemed to be often

  • It houses Donatello's David and other important renaissance works. It is also a beautiful renaissance structure.
  • The scenary offered by this piece of art is magnificent, the tower looms on San Firenze Square and you can see it from everywhere else. It is a combination of medieval and reinassance art. It was a jail during the inquisition time and the structure inside is in the original shape of it.
