Spectacular museum. The Doors to Paradise are worth the visit on their own. But it's more than just the doors here. See the entire museum. more »
History, faith and art!! All here. Really though: what's not to love!!!! It's the only museum in the heart of Firenze!! I enjoy walking here at night. It looks surreally beautiful! Out of this world renaissance beauty!!MichaelAngelo, Paolo!! The bell tower!! That view from up above!!! Museum!! Baptism!! It's magnificent from both inside and out!
Interesting rabbit warren filled with items. Lovely 'Touchable' replicas of some of the main exhibits (take care not to touch the wrong things) & fascinating details about the dome, including Brunelleschi's death mask. Pieta & Penitent Magdalena on ground floor Room 10. Plenty of clean toilets. Only downside is the lack of information about the pieces etc. We enjoyed our couple of hours there & 10 year old quite happy too.
