  • The poignant topic is well presented and at times is more than just a little heart-tugging. The story of the “wheel of the Innocents” is also unique and touching. I recommend you to get an audio guide...  more »

  • The Museum, I wanted to see it because it is a very important Renaissance building designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and for me it was one of the places that I need to see in your lifetime. As such, the Museum is very modern. Exposure is an interesting, modern conceived and immerses you. Very interesting photos, lyrics, a reminder to the orphans, the information about the life of orphans at that time. Overall, I was very pleasantly překapená. In my very interesting, one prohlédně something else again in the flood of galleries, sculpture, etc. The Museum has a úschové Cabinet. We arrived in the morning, the Museum was empty.

  • It's totally worth visiting this museum. The renaissance architecture has been restored and improved to contemporary museum standards in an elegant, tasteful and restrained way. The collection itself, although small, boosts some masterpieces and it's arranged in a modern, minimalist fashion putting into value the works of art. Very good quality museography and explanations.
  • This was one of the most interesting and touching museums we've visited in Europe. If you've had enough of looking at statues and want to see a bit of humanity, come and learn about the first secular organisation to take in abandoned children, and see some stunning architecture. No queues, very affordable (€10 including an audioguide), and well worth the visit.
  • Wonderful and well made museum, especially the historical and artistic parts. Awesome views and area too. Only thing, the café is horrible: 15 minutes for a glass of water.
  • In addition to its collection of paintings (including Ghirlandaio's masterpiece, The Adoration of the Magi), the museum provides a well-curated insight into the 500 year-old history of Florence's foundlings.
  • Very interesting! And more interesting its history

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
