  • In this place you find explained the history of the stone cutter craft excellent way, can admire materials and tools and gets so an idea which Cup is necessary, this wunderbarenm to make acting stone inlays in E.g. the Medici Chapel paintings. Unfortunately today real work from these workshops are prohibitively expensive, but to almost open to visitors look and wonder (I was the only one there) of various works of art of stone you pay only a low entrance.

  • Rarely in what the Museum does not have tables or vases paintings executed in creative mosaics of semiprecious stones. Masters used the natural colors and gemstones. Cut them into pieces and skilfully combined "Stone paintings". A brand that will remain for centuries, proud florentincev. The Museum also presents models, drawings, graphics, and the tools used to perform the various stages of production. Products of such a workshop was very fashionable among the 17-18 century.

  • 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.
