  • Very good museum to visit. Lot of interesting things to see. Make sure to check visiting hours because they don't correspond with those stated here.
  • Great Museum holding some of the most important Italian sculptures. The building on its own Is amazing and has an interesting story. Also a must visit in Florence if you are into arts, especially sculpture.
  • Pretty cool museum! I really liked the current exhibition. 8€ is the regular ticket which is a bit pricey for a single not huge museum. The ceramics room was awesome though
  • Exquisite collection of pre-Renaissance and Renaissance artefacts including exhibits from the Arab and Islamic civilizations.
  • Fantastic and underrated. Loads of famous sculptures such as Donatello's David, set in a former prison. Upstairs has some interesting collections too.

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.
