  • Everybody has their personal preferences and there are hundreds of exceptional works so I shall mention only what struck me particularly and what I would recommend to a friend: -- the Virgins and...  more »
  • Even if you are not a painting fanatic this is recommended as the stuff there is stunning. Get an audioguide (6€ extra) to fully appreciate it.  more »
  • The artwork on display is wonderful and since we’re under 25 our entry tickets were only 2 euros each! An absolute steal and well worth a visit.  more »
  • Luckily you have the real David....that was awesome. I am not so much into art and museums but I had to see the real David statue. Entry was 10 euro which is not bad. Lots of other art works but not familiar to me. Florence is really an awesome place and if you have some spare time come to this gallery but there are better things to see and do if your time is limited. Greetings from South Africa.
  • We were looking for a way to escape the afternoon heat when we saw this one the map. For less than half the price of one ticket to the Uffizi in Florence we saw more and in my opinion more interesting art. Reasonable price and has many great pieces. Would recommend to anyone looking to experience "the arts."
  • This is a large gallery of mostly Venetian art, mainly from the 1400s to 1800s. We came on a Sunday morning because it was raining heavily and we didn't feel like being outdoors all day. At 10:30am there was a long line to enter so we waited in the wind and rain for nearly an hour. As miserable as the wait was I appreciated that they were controlling the number of visitors so there would not be huge crowds in the galleries.
  • Looks like a great place to visit... shame the internet describes it as free entry, when you arrive €12!! Seems you need to be wealthy to see Art. Not very inclusive
  • This place is historic and a real treasure but with all things it takes a lot of time ! Restorations close rooms for years on end and finally after 4 years the images of Saint Ursula are open again Be aware of lots of steps no cafe and small gift books store Washrooms clean Kids under 18 free!
