  • Brunelleschi's death mask and Donatello's Zuccone (Donnie's fave) were the star attractions for us. Great to see the Gothic facade too. The path was a little winding but fun.
  • wonderful museum. you cannot miss it. Check the official website of the museum to buy the "skip the line" ticket to access the museum; the basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore-, Giotto Tower and Batisterium easily.
  • Amazing place to visit with wonderful treasures. Could spend several days examining everything. Staff are helpful, friendly and helm to answer any questions. Don't miss the view of the Duomo from the roof terrace!
  • A modern museum that's worth visiting to escape the summer heat of Florence. Otherwise, worth a 15 min visit with your Duomo all inclusive ticket
  • Another fabulous museum in Florence. Mary Magdalene by Donatello enthralled me as did Ghiberti's "Gates of Paradise". Michelangelo and so much more ... a must see.
