  • Beautiful and surprising! Many of the painting need restoration, but they are so beautiful. Each room tells a story and I love that many of the rooms are dedicated to women warriors. Went with a stroller for my child, they have an elevator available, needed to go up some steps but it was manageable. Staff was helpful and friendly.
  • The building is incredibly beautiful and the details of the interior is incredible. This place is a home to many gorgeous and iconic art pieces such as different paintings and sculptures. There are some of Michelangelo’s finished and unfinished works that allow you to understand just how much of a genius he was. The place is the heart of Florence, so it’s a must-see for all the visiting tourists!
