  • Everyone runs to see the Uffizi, but the real jewel of Florence's Bargello Museum. A taste of history between unique works of art.

  • In addition to such lovely statues (just think of the David di Donatello) I really liked the architectural style of the building. Medieval style very basic really impressive

  • Really nice museum with a bit of everything. We were extremely impressed until we saw everything else the city has! Recommended for a 5 day trip, but it's not top of the must do list for Florence.
  • Very interesting musem with a unique collection of ceramics, porcelain and sculpture. Not crowded at all so its worth a visit to experience some history minus the crowds.
  • Really enjoyed the museum. It has a little bit of everything: art, artifacts, and more. We especially enjoyed the room if maps and the room of ancient weapons.
  • Beautiful and worth the price. Great collection of armor and weapons and the castle is beautiful too! Not too busy!
  • Very good, relaxed museum with sculptures (including many by Donatello), coins, weapons, and more. Be sure to check it out if you're passing by. Also, the entry is only 4 euros - much cheaper than any other museum in Florence.
