  • The new production is of great refinement with a rich iconography and very informative. The rooms have been restored to their original splendor. Interesting to read the history of the birth and life of these environments. The gallery contains pieces of great value well displayed. The terrace with coffee to watch in the evening: fascinating.

  • Brunelleschi's hand is in evidence in this 15th century building. Great frescoes and works of art and the building itself are worth a visit, if you are in the area.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful squares in Florence, where stop for to admire the rounds of newborns by Andrea Della Robbia, symbol of the building which received children abandoned.

  • 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.
  • Very interesting! And more interesting its history
  • 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.

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.
