  • If you're looking for something truly Italian, off-the-beaten-path, or look beyond the typical traveler's must-see list, check out the Museum of Hard Rocks. Actually, it's about semi-precious stone, a...  more »

  • A small museum that leaves you speechless: each work is a masterpiece made with a mastery that leaves really admired. Very few visitors ... on the one hand allowed us to fully appreciate the visit though got a bit sad: maybe too many tourists miss this gem.

  • Really amazing. A smallish museum but full of incredibly amazing art you won't see anywhere else. There are pictures and tables that took decades to create. We also had a great English speaking tour guide (thanks Gabriel!) who was able to answer our questions and provide lots of interesting information.
  • Interesting museum if you have more than one day in Florence
  • The first thing that impressed us is the price of this museum: 4€ normally and 2€ reduced (age depending, not for students). Inside it is quite small but there are a lot of wonderful carving and setting works to see. There are two floors in this museum while in the first there are this finished operas in the second there are the instruments used in a lab to work the stones and on a wall there is a collection of hundreds of the most famous stones used for those works like alabasters, granite, lapislazzuli etc. etc. This museum is not so much advertised and is quite hidden in Via degli Alfani, doesn't seems so nice from outside, but if you go in Florence you should visit it! The only defect is that maybe is too small but for that price it is acceptable.
  • Such a wonderful museum! Genius craftworks since Renaissance. Shame that it's not very much known..
  • Amazing and very understated

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.
